Events

*July 11 - Disc jockey and music promoter Alan Freed broadcasts his first Rhythm and blues radio programme from station WJW in Cleveland, Ohio. Freed uses the term rock and roll to describe R&B, in an effort to introduce the music to a broader white audience.
*September 11 - "The Rake's Progress", an opera by Igor Stravinsky with libretto by W. H. Auden and Chester Kallman, premieres in Venice, conducted by the composer
*November - Popular songstress Dinah Shore begins her first TV series, "The Dinah Shore Show", which will run for 5 1/2 years.
*Johnnie Ray has his first hit.
*Teresa Brewer leaves the London label for Coral
*Georgia Gibbs leaves Coral to sign with Mercury, where she will experience all of her biggest hits
*Frankie Laine is signed by Columbia Records, becoming the highest paid vocalist of his day. He immediately justifies his new contract with the double-sided megahit "Jezebel"/"Rose, Rose, I Love You."
*Both Jackie Brentson and the Delta Cats and Bill Haley and His Saddlemen release versions of "Rocket 88". The Haley version, recorded on June 14, combines the original's rhythm and blues arrangement with country music trappings, and is considered by many musical historians to be the first true rock and roll record. Other historians contend that Brentson's RnB recording deserves this honor.
