Remembering Dick Clark
Dick Clark’s memory will live on for many years to come. America’s oldest teenager was influential in bringing Rock and Roll into so many households in America as the longtime host of American Bandstand. The iconic show originated in Philadelphia and debuted nationally in the summer of 1957.
