I WANT TO BE YOUR LOVER/ WHY YOU WANNA TREAT ME SO BAD-Prince's First Appearance on American Bandstand The two hour *** Clark tribute show that aired on New Year's Eve counted down the top 30 moments/clips from his career, an eclectic selection of highlights that showcased Clark's versatility, ad-libbing skills and peerless ability to connect with artists (and fans) from several different generations. Choosing such a list is inherently subjective because Clark's multi-decade career cannot be summarized in just two hours--or, to be more precise, his career could be summarized in several different ways if only two hours are available to do so. One clip that did not make the cut is Prince's American Bandstand debut, a performance that became as infamous for Prince's brief answers when being interviewed by Clark as it did for Prince's precocity; Prince's debut album, "For You," contained this soon to be famous declaration on the cover: "Produced, Arranged, Composed & Performed by Prince." Clark explained tha ...

So fun reading these posts. The memories! Back in the 60's we used to go "pool hopping" in Mission Valley. Just hit all the pools at the fancy hotels. I remember seeing "2001" at the drive-In on El Cajon Blvd. Can't believe they really used to show Bullfights on channel 12 live from TJ. (The original reality show!) Bob Dale with his bowties and afternoon movie. Grunion runs in OB. The beach covered with them in the moonlight! Regis Philbin had a local show, and Saturday had "TV 8 Dancetime" a local, live, show like American Bandstand. Ozzies Band Contest! Oh man, I could go! Thanks for your posts, all.

'The Now Explosion'...26 Weeks That Changed Music-Television On Saturday, March 14, 1970, music shows on television changed forever when 'The Now Explosion' debuted on Atlanta's WATL. Till then, all there was were teen dance shows like 'American Bandstand' and artist appearances on variety shows. 'Now Explosion' was created to trun weekend television into a Top 40 radio station. The show was created by Bob Whitney, who I spoke with yesterday. Bob had started in broadcasting as a disc jockey, but by the late 60s, was GM of Philadelphia UHF television station owned by Daniel Overmyer. The idea of a video type radio show had been in Bob's head for a couple of years. UHF stations had notoriously low viewership and a weekend music show like this could attract the younger demo and, fill vast swaths of weekend programing time with an idea youth market advertisers should flock too. the link, you'll see photos of the pilot being shot at WFAA in Dallas October 18-20, 1969. In early 1970, Bob moved from the US Comm ...

VETERAN ROCKER FABIAN FORTE RECOVERING FROM HEART SURGERY Former Chancellor Records recording artist and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native Fabian Forte has been sidelined from live performance for a brief season, as he recovers from heart surgery performed in Pittsburgh on 07 April. Forte, who tours regularly with fellow Philadelphia veteran rockers Bobby Rydell and Frankie Avalon, underwent an aorta route, a valve replacement and a bypass. He is presently recovering at home. An influence on such artists as the New Colony Six (who acknowledged him in the sleeve notes of their second album, Colonization) and Dion DiMucci (who covered his material), Forte was responsible for one of rock and roll's defining moments with his utterly stupendous 1959 Chancellor label single, Turn Me Loose. Here is a live American Bandstand clip from that year, in which Forte reprises that classic moment:

I gotta say I am sad to hear my favourite Meteorologist is retiring from Television. Late Night will not be the same without Dave Letterman. Jimmy Fallon is great at what he does but I will miss Dave & Paul almost as much as Johnny Carson & Ed McMahon. The Times they are a Changing . Some of the best bands in the world were introduced to my eyes & ears on both of those shows since the 70's with Johnny & the early 80's with Letterman, Keyboard player Extraordinaire Paul Shafer & the world's most Dangerous Band. Well Done Dave. These shows & American Bandstand exposed us to the soundtrack of our lives , for that I thank you .

Innovations (1) 1982 : Pop duo Buckner & Garcia appear on American Bandstand to perform their hit single "Pac-Man Fever." The single, from their album of the same name, had previously hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and been certified gold by the RIAA, signifying the first successful song about or based on a video game. Video games in 1982 had only become popular in the past few years, and the appearance of coin-operated video game arcades (where Pac-Man reigned supreme at the time) signified the first time computing technology was embraced by home consumers for its entertainment value alone.

(LONG POST) This is how we rolled through the 1960's The sixties were the age of youth, as 70 million children from the post-war baby boom became teenagers and young adults. The movement away from the conservative fifties continued and eventually resulted in revolutionary ways of thinking and real change in the cultural fabric of American life. No longer content to be images of the generation ahead of them, young people wanted change. The changes affected education, values, lifestyles, laws, and entertainment. Many of the revolutionary ideas which began in the sixties are continuing to evolve today. Youth predominated the culture of the 1960's. The post World War II Baby Boom had created 70 million teenagers for the sixties, and these youth swayed the fashion, the fads and the politics of the decade. California surfers took to skateboards as a way to stay fit out of season, and by 1963, the fad had spread across the country. Barbie dolls, introduced by Mattel in 1959, became a huge success in the si ...

The "Polyester Ball" wishes a happy birthday to BEVERLY BREMERS (born March 10, 1950 in Chicago, Illinois), who recorded the Top 20 million-selling hit "Don't Say You Don't Remember" (Beverly performed the song on *** Clark's "American Bandstand" on its April 22, 1972 broadcast.) After relocating with her family to the New York City area, Beverly performed on CBS-TV's "Ted Mack's Original Amateur Hour" on her thirteenth birthday. In 1969, she joined Broadway's "Hair" early in its first run playing Chrissy, and then returned to the musical and played the female lead Sheila during the final phase of Hair's original Broadway run. Bremers is now a successful songwriter, composing the theme song for the Disney Channel's "Mousercise" (which earned her a Platinum Record for selling over 1 million copies), an in-demand voice-over actress (she's Slug Boy's mom on the Cartoon Network's "Cow and Chicken"), and is also a well-respected vocal coach in the Orange County, California area.

Remembering growing up in the fifties. The Delaware Water Gap Blues Being six foot one in the seventh grade can have its advantages and disadvantages. For me, one disadvantage reared its head when my friends and I went to the Hy-way Theater on Route 4 on Saturday afternoon for the weekly kiddie matinee, with its treasures of fifteen cartoons, a batman serial and two monster movies. Each week I had to face an irate ticket seller who would not let me in for the twelve and under children’s price of twenty-five cents. The advantages began when the opposite sex became a more important part of my existence. It was a never ending source of amazement to me that upon reaching that six foot plateau, girls viewed me in a curious way. As if by magic, I had become three years older, more mature, and possessing the sex appeal of Elvis Presley. If the reader has not already guessed, this chapter in my life was set in the era of Elvis Presley, Dion and the Belmonts, and *** Clark’s American Bandstand from Phila ...
Over 40 Years of Connecting People With God's Love and Faith In May 1967, Kenneth Copeland was walking along the bed of the Arkansas River in Tulsa, Oklahoma, when the Lord dropped the vision of the ministry into his heart: to preach the gospel to the nations—a call that would include using every available voice to preach the uncompromised message of faith to meet the needs of people worldwide. It all started though with simple steps of obedience and faith, walking in love and the integrity of God's Word. In 1957 at 20 years of age, with a hit record, Pledge of Love, at on the national charts and on the local charts Kenneth looked to be on his way to a successful singing career appearing on American Bandstand and featured next to Ricky Nelson in Dig Magazine. But God had other plans. He met Gloria and asked her to marry him on their first date. She said yes. At that time, they lived in a rented apartment with a rollaway bed, coffeepot they cooked in and kept their food on the porch to keep it cold. Thin ...

OK. guess I should have done it this way. Regarding KGBT.in the VERY early days, there were two kids shows: Ranger Jim and Clooney (Cloony?) the Clown. I think I was on both...to the dismay of my parents! I think they were in the afternoons when the station was on only part of the day. In the mid 60s, there was "Swamp-a-Go-Go"...an "American Bandstand" spinoff. It was on Saturdays.

This is the 56th birthday of my first son. Kenneth Barton Paschen was born at 4:44 pm on a Wednesday at Virginia Mason Hospital in Seattle after a wild ride to the hospital in a police car two days before. That ride proved unnecessary, as the pains stopped before we got there. It was exciting, though! Kenny was a good baby. When he was about a year and a half he loved to watch TV. He loved American Bandstand and would stand a couple of inches from the screen and bounce up and down to the music. And when the Price is Right with Bob Barker came on, he played close attention. He’d run behind the drapes, and throw them back yelling, “BobBabba!” He didn’t particularly like school and when he was about in the second grade, instead of walking to the school that was a couple of blocks away, he’d hide in the bushes until his dad left for work, and then come back in. When we’d finally get to school, the teacher asked him why he did that. He said, “My mom can teach me!” Later, when he was j ...

Hanging out with my dance partner Diana at a Thai restaurant near the gymnastics place where we just finished our workshop. We decided to look up a swing website that shall go unnamed and on their history of swing dancing, this quote came up: "In the 50′s and 60′s with the influx of Rock and Roll, partner dancing slowed down in the United States." I have often heard this highly inaccurate quote many times. If by "partner dancing", they simply mean lead and follow dances, then that quote is completely wrong, since anybody who has ever seen American Bandstand or a Rock and Roll exploitation flick, can attest to! Partner dancing slowed down somewhat after World War 2 with the influx of the Tin Pan Alley balladeers (Perry Como and his ilk) along with Be Bop jazz, which was intended for listening and oftentimes even had signs put up at the clubs playing Be Bop stating "No lindy hoping ," but Rock n Roll brought back partner dancing, and swing dancing in particular. As someone who got into Smooth Lindy Hop ...

Good Friday Morning, It's an exciting Friday Morning here at the station, at least for me it is. I'm actually off this weekend. I did not have to slide my way into work this morning on icy sidewalks, and high temperatures over the next day or two should be in the 50's. Of course rain and wind comes with it, but we've gone through much worse lately. I had a great night out on the town last night. Conestoga Elementary PTO roller skating party was a blast. Followed that up with a Shamrock Shake. That's about as exciting as it gets around here right now. I did learn several things. Roller Skating is NOT like riding a bike. If you haven't roller skated in 25 years you can NOT jump right back on the rink like you never left. These new skates are no good. They are clearly responsible for the extreme pain in my feet and ankles. Oh and my thighs, quads, and lower back too. I never felt like this 25 years ago so it must be the skates. I also learned kids these days have huge feet. As for the Shamrock ...

Tribute to Shirley Temple I was recording for Challenge Records in 1962-63, owned by Gene Autrey and run by Joe Johnson and Dave Burgess (Tequila by The Champs). They were tossing around ideas about what songs I should record and my Mom came up with the idea of me updating a version of "On The Good Ship Lollipop", sung by little Shirley Temple. The first time I tried it out with arranger Jess Hodges, a soulful rendition rang out. That little ole lollipop song was spiced up with trombone solos and a deep-throated "You've got a tummy ache" by the well-known Los Angeles DJ, Wink Martindale. Another L.A. jockey, Bill Balance, picked it three weeks in a row as his "Pick Hit". Listen: flip side of that single was "If You Loved Me (Really Loved Me), originally sung by Edith Piaff. My version was performed twice on American Bandstand. I'll post it here later today. Goodbye little girl with your radiant curls and dimples to die for. You're in our hearts forever more.
walking down memory lane tonite watching the tribute to the BEATLES and feeling younger right now,it,s hard to believe 50 yrs have passed since they were discovered. I am so glad that I grew in the days of Elvis, the Beattles, Everly Brothers and American Bandstand. Those were some great times and we loved to dance to that music. For those of you who didn,t get to experience the 60,s you sure missed out on a lot of fun, so glad to have been a part of it. Who says us old people still can,t rock, we are in our 70,s now and still rocking, and I,m gonna rock till I drop ha ha!

Also, TOMORROW ( Sat 4th ) Columbia City Theater / Roger Miller Trib.. Here's another write up. We're gonna be a preforming as a 4 piece with Country Dave sitting in. Should be a hoot ! // we're up 2nd , music starts at 8PM SHARP. Saturday, Jan. 4 A Tribute to Roger Miller Though best known for the country classic “King of the Road,” Roger Miller was a multitalented session cat. He played drums for Faron Young and Ray Price and fiddle with Minnie Pearl. He wrote songs, performed by Young, Price, and Ernest Tubbs, that went to the top 10. He performed on TV programs like American Bandstand, The Jimmy Dean Show, and The Merv Griffin Show, appearances which introduced his clean-cut looks and goofy persona to millions of Americans, endearing them to songs like “Do-Wacka-Do,” “Dang Me,” and “Chug-a-Lug.” His humor-filled tunes put him in the same category as his most similar contemporary, Bobby Bare, but the two ran in different circles, and Bare proved more successful with lasting fame. But Mi ...

The late *** Clark was often asked what was the secret to his enduring popularity with teenagers on American Bandstand and "New Year's Rockin' Eve", even as he became old enough to be their grandfather. In his 1978 memoir "Rock, Roll and Remember" he gave three principles that guided him during his 32-year stint as AB's host: 1. Always treat the kids on the show like you would treat guests in your own home. 2. Don't talk down to them. 3. Never speak their slang or language. ("Nothing's more embarrasing than a bald 40-year-old man chomping a cigar and trying to talk like a teenager.") Off-camera *** Clark was known to have a short temper, drop his share of cuss bombs, love his cigarettes and drinks, and was married three times. But when it came to a TV show that featured pop bands of all music genres over four decades, he was the perfect MC--even when guests like John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten) of Public Image Ltd. got surly with him on-camera. As my artwork is getting known on DeviantArt, especially my S . ...

Spokesman Paul Shefrin said the "American Bandstand" creator had a heart attack Wednesday morning at Saint John's hospital in Santa Monica, a day after he was admitted for an outpatient procedure. Pictures: *** Clark Long dubbed "the world's oldest teenager" because of his boyish appearance, Clark bridged the rebellious new music scene and traditional show business, and was equally comfortable whether chatting about music with Sam Cooke or bantering with Ed McMahon about TV bloopers. He thrived as the founder of *** Clark Productions, supplying movies, game and music shows, beauty contests and more to TV. Among his credits: "The $25,000 Pyramid," "TV's Bloopers and Practical Jokes" and the American Music Awards. For a time in the 1980s, he had shows on all three networks and was listed among the Forbes 400 of wealthiest Americans.

In the year 2014 I will have been on this earth for 6 decades. I will have lived through Vietnam, USO tours with Bob Hope, the Rat Pac to Woodstock, American Bandstand to Snoop Dog. Kennedy to Obama. I will have seen the first man on the moon in black and white. I will have seen the loss of and entire crew who never got to see their dreams of the moon. Too many wars, the loss of to many friends who never made it through those wars as well as drugs and alcohol. I will have fought my own addictions to be clean. I will have gone from Burlesque as a job to Nursing to Farming to my own company. I will have watched the towers burn down from and enemy we can not see. A changing world from days gone by that were so simple then. I miss kick the can and being out after dark to play. Life was so simple then. I will have given birth to my children and watched the birth of my grandchildren. So what have I learned in 6 decades? Music is good. There are no right or wrong decisions only lessons. Lessons you learn to grow ...
