Museum of Broadcast Communications Presents Rock'n'Roll Exhibit

The Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago is presenting an exhibit, “Rock’n’Roll on the Radio.” It showcases influential disc jockeys who introduced the music to American radio listeners, including Cleveland DJ Alan Freed, who is credited with first using the term to refer to the music.
Other DJs visitors will be able to see and hear include Dick Biondi, Yvonne Daniels, Herb Kent, Cousin Brucie Morrow, Hal Jackson and Murray “the K,” as well as Gary Owens, Ricks Dees, Casey Kasem, Dick Clark and others.
Three interactive kiosks let visitors explore the relationship between radio and rock and roll from the “Your Hit Parade” to the Payola scandals, the emergence of FM and Steve Dahl’s Dicso Demolition Night.
Running through Dec. 30, the exhibit is open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and on Sunday from noon to 4:30 p.m. Admission is free.
