Disc jockey Alan Freed is widely credited with coining the term “rock and roll” to describe the uptempo black R&B records he played as early as 1951 on Cleveland radio station WJW. In addition, in 1952, Freed was one of the people who put together the Moondog Coronation Ball, a Cleveland concert that is now considered the first-ever rock and roll concert. His career was destroyed by the payola scandal that hit the broadcasting industry in the early 1960s. On January 23, 1986, Freed was part of the first group inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.

    Quoting  :

You are not disagreeing with me, you are disagreeing with the writers of "Rock and Roll" Trivia as well as Wikipedia.

From Wikipedia: " In 1951, Cleveland, Ohio disc jockey Alan Freed began playing this music style while popularizing the phrase to describe it."
