American Bandstand was an American music-performance show that aired in various versions from 1952 to 1989 and was hosted from 1956 until its final season by Dick Clark ..As a teenager in the 60's this was one of my most important tv shows to watch so I knew what popular records to buy
American Band Stand.My brother and I stayed at odds over this and Gene Autry.
A "Regular" on AB - Carmen Jimenez - 1958. After this photo was taken, her hair got longer and she bleached part of the front. I thought that was SO cool at the time.
July 9, 1956: Dick Clark's First Appearance as Host of American Bandstand. Loved this show in the 70's!
