Frankie Hollywood Crocker (December 18, 1937, Buffalo, New York, USA – October 21, 2000, age 62, North Miami Beach, Florida) was a famous New York radio DJ. (Coined Hollywood for his keen sense of showmanship and self-marketing tactics.) According to popeducation.org, Crocker began his career in Buffalo at the AM Soul powerhouse WUFO (also the home to future greats Eddie OJay, Herb Hamlett, Gary Byrd and Chucky T) before moving to Manhattan, where he first worked for Soul station WWRL and later top-40 WMCA in 1969. He then worked for WBLS-FM as program director, taking that station to the top of the ratings during the late 1970s and pioneering the radio format now known as urban contemporary. He sometimes called himself the Chief Rocker, and he was as well known for his boastful on-air patter as for his off-air flamboyance.When Studio 54 was at the height of its popularity, Crocker rode in through the front entrance on a white stallion. In the studio, before he left for the day, Crocker would light a candle and invite female listeners to enjoy a candlelight bath with him. He signed off the air each night to the tune Moodys Mood For Love by vocalese crooner King Pleasure. Crocker, a native of Buffalo, coined the phrase urban contemporary in the 1970s, a label for the eclectic mix of songs that he played.He was the master of ceremonies of shows at the Apollo Theater in Harlem and was one of the first V.J.s on VH-1, the cable music video channel, in addition to hosting the TV series Solid Gold and NBCs Friday Night Videos. As an actor, Crocker appeared in five films, including Cleopatra Jones, Five on the Black Hand Side, and Darktown Strutters.He is credited with introducing as many as 30 new artists to the mainstream, including Manu Dibangos Soul Makossa to American audiences. While both Gary Byrd and Herb Hamlett were influenced by Crocker, it is only Hamlett who always attributes his success to his mentor in Buffalo, Frankie Crocker.Frankie Crocker was inducted into the Buffalo Broadcasting Hall of Fame in 2000, and the New York State Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame in 2005.He also was mentioned as a paramour of, and suspect in the murder of, young Hollywood starlet Christa Helm.
