There is very little story in this showcase vehicle for rock ‘n’ roll.
Reporter Carole Hendricks (Lois O’Brien) is anxious for a story from DJ Alan Freed on rock and roll and is introduced to singer Teddy Randazzo. They fall for each other immediately, but break up in a row over what Carole’s editor, Joe Prentiss (Jay Barney), is doing to slander the “menace” of rock & roll and Freed.
Once again, though, Al saves the music and the star-crossed lovers, by explaining the music’s origins and putting on a benefit for the editor’s favourite charity – the ‘heart fund’.
