DJ Alan Freed for radio station WJW, during the program "Moondog
Show" called the music Rock 'n Roll for the first time. He played
lots of rhythm and blues on his show for all the young people
who were tired of the popular music of the moment.
kids preferred the 2/4 time with the accent on the last count
and the raspy sounding voices and they were crazy about the
way the artists looked and how they moved on stage. The movements
of the artists became the basic of inspiration for what is called
the boogie woogie.
