The History of Rock & Roll


The History of Rock & Roll

"The History of Rock & Roll" was a radio documentary on rock and roll music, originally syndicated in 1969. One of the most-lengthiest documentaries of any medium (48 hours in the 1969 version, 52 hours for the 1978 and 1981 versions) Fact|date=January 2008, "The History of Rock & Roll" is a definitive history of the Rock and Roll genre, stretching from the early 1950s to its day. The documentary featured hundreds of interviews and comments from numerous rock artists and people involved with rock and roll.

Notable features of this documentary include the "chart sweep", featuring a montage of #1 songs and notable hits from a given year or artist, and the "time sweep", featuring a montage of popular songs from 1955 to the year of the latest version. The 1989 edition also included news headlines and clips for each year covered.

While the documentary focuses on Rock & Roll and its variants, some of songs and artists from other genres, such as Johnny Cash, Anne Murray and Barry Manilow, are also represented here, as they have made the Top 40, or even #1, on stations that primarily played Rock & Roll.

"The History of Rock & Roll" first aired on the weekend of February 21-23, 1969 on 93 KHJ Los Angeles, hosted by Robert W. Morgan. Later that year, with slight modifications to the script, another version was aired hosted by "Humble" Harve Miller. The program was then taken to national syndication in the fall of 1969 by parent company RKO General.

In 1975, Drake-Chenault began the process of updating the documentary. Finding that the 1969 script contained too many historical inaccuracies and omissions, Gary Theroux was hired in 1976 to rewrite a new script with Bill Drake. Engineer Mark Ford painstaking created music montages for each year of the rock era: Montage A containing excerpts from every number #1 hit according to Billboard magazine, and a Montage B which contained other noteworthy songs of the year. Using a systematic approach covering each year with a Chart Sweep and separate hours devoted to specific artists and trends, and hosted by Bill Drake himself, the result was an enormously successful program which played on over 400 stations nationally and 400 overseas. The 1978 edition of the History of Rock & Roll won Billboard magazine's "Top Special Program of the Year".

With the success of the 1978 release, Drake-Chenault created a shorter, edited version called "The History of Rock & Roll: The Early Years" which covered up through 1971 and targeted to Oldies stations and Classic Rock markets.

The final Drake-Chenault version was released in the spring of 1981, named the Silver Anniversary Edition of the History of Rock & Roll, so-called as it was about 25 years since the birth of Rock & Roll. Not wishing to increase the size of the program, and with an attempt to place greater emphasis on the current musical trends, the controversial decision was made to severely cut back the sections devoted to the 1950s and early 1960s (prior to the advent of the Beatles). Only the two hour section on Elvis Presley remained relatively unchanged from this portion. The Chart Sweeps covering 1956-1963 (formerly a half hour each in the 1978 edition) were combined into a single half hour, whilst the new Chart Sweeps for 1978, 1979 and 1980 were expanded to one hour each.

With Drake-Chenault having been sold in 1986, it was the ABC Rock Radio Network which followed up with what it called "The Official History of Rock & Roll". Hosted by a team of disc jockeys including Tony Pigg, Meg Griffin, Jimmy Fink and Mike Harrison, it bore little resemblance to the Drake-Chenault versions.

The name

Despite the program's popularity, the name "History of Rock & Roll" was never trademarked. As a result, there are various items on the market that bear this name that had no connection to the radio program. These included various oldies compilations (such as a set of LP albums from Pickwick Records), books (such as a "History of Rock and Roll" college textbook, written by Tom Larson) and videos and DVDs (like a Time Life "History of Rock and Roll" DVD set). In addition, Rolling Stone magazine not only released a book with this phrase ("The Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock & Roll"), but also had an early-1980s weekly radio series along the same scope as the special ("Rolling Stone's Continuous History of Rock & Roll").

To be fair, however, the radio special shared its name from a 1960's single from Christopher Paul, "The History of Rock & Roll".Fact|date=January 2008

First Rockumentary?

The History of Rock and Roll billed itself as "modern music's first Rockumentary" when it first aired on February 21, 1969. [http://www.93khjhistoryofrockandroll.com/] However, it had some competition for that title from the Pop Chronicles which also began airing in February 1969 on rival Los Angeles AM station KRLA. [http://www.library.unt.edu/resolveuid/8010e153e92dcb6f750f8bc75d02522e] But since the The History of Rock and Roll completed its first broadcast that weekend, it was the first of these rockumentaries to be broadcast in full.
