If everybody thinks Dick Clark started "American Bandstand," you're wrong. This book tells about "Bandstand" before Dick Clark became the host. It goes into great detail about the years between 1952 and 1956.
However, the book was slightly disappointing. I bought it in hopes the author would talk a little more about the kids who used to dance on the show (since learning my favorite disc jockey danced on the show in 1953), and it didn't. Can't win 'em all, right? Also there were many spelling and punctuation errors as well. But those can be easilly overlooked. All in all, this was a good book.

Excellent book. Authur did a lot of research and was granted exclusive access from Bob Horn's widow for his research and clippings. Rare book and incredible story. Pieces have finally fallen into place after 60 years.

As a teenager, I attended the Bandstand show with Lee Stewert and Bob Horn in Philadelphia. Enjoyed it very much. Too bad that Bob Horn had to take the rap for Lee Stewert's misdoings.

Informative in showing possible conspiracy with the removal of the first host of Bandstand.
