Moondog Coronation Ball - Part 1

 

Hear the first rock & roll concert that never happened.

 

My son Alex Berger shares his old man's love of vintage R&B and early rock & roll. In fact, he's taken his passion to the next level and works as a Chicago DJ spinning all-vinyl funk, soul, disco and music designed to get bottoms moving.

He goes by DJ Bergadelic and I hope Chicago folks check out his show or book him for your event.

This past Christmas Alex put together this playlist to go along with my Alan Freed Ohiophonic project. It features the artists who were scheduled to play at Freed's first Moondog Coronation Ball. The show was closed down by Cleveland Police just as it was getting started.

Enjoy the playlist and a sampling of a little music history.
