Been meanin to ask. Any other old time Rock & Rollers like me watch the TV movie about Alan Freed Sunday nite. Man, what a wimp-out movie! As somebody who lived it, listened to him on the radio and went to most if not all of his Brooklyn Paramount shows - That ain't the way I remember it. The time line was wrong on some of the songs. He was on WINS in NY, not WLOR. Is there a WLOR? Maybe they just made up a phoney station. But there was no realism to the movie.
His radio shows had excitement. I remember when he introduced the record Bo Diddly in NY. They showed it coming out in Cleveland before he came to NY.
I made time to watch it for the nostalgia and was really disappointed.

Oh well,
