Rock Hall to Dedicate Studio to Alan Freed

Rock Hall to Dedicate Studio to Alan Freed

Since its opening, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland has made available a radio studio to visiting stations for remote broadcasts. This autumn, that studio will be renovated with new equipment, acoustic treatment and a new name: the Alan Freed Radio Studio. Freed, the Cleveland DJ widely credited with coining the term “rock ‘n’ roll,” was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.
Construction of the studio is to begin in October, following demolition of the old one. Broadcasters General Store, the principal technology sponsor for the project, facilitated gifts from vendors including Logitek, Studio Technology, Tannoy, Marantz, Telos Systems, Comrex, MediaTouch and Atlas Sound. Programming consultant McVay Media is handling the scheduling of remote broadcasts from the facility. To promote the project, live broadcasts from The NAB Radio Show in Seattle will air using Comrex codecs, including Steve Dahl of WCKG(FM) in Chicago and Jones Radio Network syndicated personalities Delilah and Alan Kable.
