Like said our parents had American Bandstand and Soul Train our generation had 106 and parks thats amazing *Chills*
From '64, the sweet Betty Everett on American Bandstand
"Going down in history like American Bandstand" ...very appropriate for this
106 & trl are comparable. Soul Train & American bandstand are comparable. They're two different platforms
" Parents have American Bandstand in Soul Train and we had 106 " -
Can't front I feel some type of way with 106 coming to an end. Wale was right. Our parents had "Soul Train &" "American Bandstand" (cont)
I never thought I'd say this, but Wale is so right. 106 is OUR American Bandstand, our Soul Train. I'm all sad now😢😢.
He real tho. 106 n Park was our Soul Train/American Bandstand. Never looked at it like that
Wale ALWAYS speaks the real. Parents had American Bandstand. We had 106. 👊
He compared American Bandstand and 106 & Park like TRL didn't exist.

Written and produced by Billy Preston, it is the second and final R&B chart topper for the prolific musician from Houston, TX.

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."

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.

'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.
March 20th gives us two birthday greats - Happy birthday to Vera Lynn, Britain's favorite (or favourite) sentimental singer of the war years and beyond, known for such classics as "The White Cliffs Of Dover", "Auf Wiedersehn", and this one: And another happy birthday to a Radio 57 favorite bandleader - Larry Elgart, who, by himself or with brother Les, has kept swinging through the years with a warm, yet bouncy sound.

(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 ...

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 ...
