Dick Clark became the host of the afternoon dance television show for teenagers in 1956 when he was a youthful 26 (as opposed to the youthful 73 he is currently), and this volume is one of the first opportunities he has taken to reminisce about the series that made him a household name as well as to talk about the artists who appeared on the show. "American Bandstand" was television's longest running and most popular dance program, with the power to make a record an overnight success and Clark's most interesting comments have to do with the early days of rock 'n' roll when "Bandstand" was pivotal in bringing the new music to a mass audience. That is why it is so strange to hear about the studio being picketed by angry teenagers because Clark was replacing Bob Horn as the host of "AB" (which was originally "Bob Horn's Bandstand" on radio) or to think about the show being 3 hours long, airing each afternoon from 2:30 until 5:30 playing 35 records a day.Read more ›
