Alan Freed (Tim McIntire) is the focus of this biopic loosely based on the controversial Cleveland disc jockey who reportedly coined the phrase "rock n' roll" and introduced rock music to a generation. Spinning records at New York radio station WINS, Freed promotes rock concerts with the help of Mookie (Jay Leno) and secretary Sheryl (Fran Drescher). Always stirring controversy, Freed confronts conservatives and racists who seek to silence the music.
