Alan Freed Facts
He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Radio at 6381 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.

After being fired from WABC radio and WNEW TV in 1959 for refusing to sign a statement that he didn't accept gratuities for the playing of records, Freed worked for KDAY radio in Los Angeles (1960). At first all went well. Ratings were good but he left when the station would not allow him to promote live rock shows.

He returned to New York in 1961 to host a "Twist" review at the Audobon Ballroom. The event wasn't well publicized at the time, as he had lost his NYC radio (WABC) and TV (WNEW) programs in 1959 due to the payola scandal. Attendance was poor.
