At the young age of 30, television disc jockey Dick Clark was in his second year of officially hosting American Bandstand and was known for being a spokesman for American teenagers.  This title got Clark onto a 1959 episode of This Is Your Life, hosted by Ralph Edwards.  Instead of being on a teenage music panel with Frankie Avalon, Andy Williams, Fabian, and Connie Francis, the show was about to look into the life of Dick Clark.

We will contuinue to rock, roll & remember you always! Instead of goodbye, we will instead say as you did, so long!

    Sorry to here about Dick’s passingl I remember seeing American Bandstand on occasion growing up in the seventies. My brother used to watch his whow quite a bit, taping all the music on his taperecorder.

    Also remember watching him all those “New Years Rockin Eve” specials back in the 80’s. He was an amazing man who also did quite a bit of charity work as well. He will be sorely missed.

    “SO LONG!” Dick.

    Sharing is caring and caring is sharing; living is giving and giving is living
    Don’t be shy, give it a try—-why not go on YOUTUBE and go down memory lane with American Banstand clips or his Rockin New Years Eve shows (you can find them on YOUTUBE I’m sure) as a tribute.
