Dick Clark, American Bandstand Remembered in Tribute Videos

Dick Clark, American Bandstand Remembered in Tribute Videos

Dick Clark and American Bandstand were given nice sendoffs on several national programs including American Idol, ‘Pyramid’ game show (created originally by Clark) and Daytime Emmys… Many of us have weighed in with their own video tributes, including thorugh the ‘magic’ of video and Youtube. Here are a couple we found on You Tube that we liked. Credits to M2Productions and Stevie Wonder with some touching background music and luvjrnyfovever for the second. Featured are a lot of the artists that cut their teeth at American Bandstand, such as Chubby Checker, Sam Cooke, Frankie Valli and Barry Manilow, who wrote the theme to American Bandstand, which plays in the background of the second video. Thanks! Dick Clark, American Bandstand Remembered in Tribute Videos

ROY ORBISON BIRTHDAY – Springsteen Sings to No. 2 All Time Oldies Artist


ROY ORBISON BIRTHDAY – Celebrate No. 2 All Time Oldies Artist

Until his famous comeback along with the Traveling Wilburys ini the late 1980s, Roy Obison was relegated to ‘second tier’ oldies artist status,with even the supposedly top music journals like Rolling Stone writing him off as a dark-suited flash-in-the-pan. Only after new-generation admires like Elvis Costello, kd lang, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits, etc. showed their appreciate in the famous 1987 ‘Black and White Night’ video tribute did Roy get the respect he deserved. People began discovering or rediscovering a wealth of underplayed and undervalued music he had recorded all the way through the late 60s and 70s, long after his initial heyday of the early 60s.

Though Orbison never got to witness the full effect of his comeback, as he passed  before his ‘Mystery Girl’ hit  No. 5 LP, he did see it ocming with the Wilburys. Since then Orbison has been the number two Oldies artist  (those having begun prior to 1963 )in sales – only Ellvis tops him.

American Bandstand Studios Reopen ! Bandstand Memorabilia, Collectables

Former ‘Bandstand’ dancers take

to floor of old Philly studio in

Clark tribute

By Kristin E. Holmes

Inquirer Staff Writer

 

Former American Bandstand dancer Tommy “Crazy Legs” Davis leaned in to examine the enlarged pictures on the walls in Studio B, looking for himself in the photos that captured the Philadelphia heyday of the rock-and-roll dance party hosted by Dick Clark.

Back then, Davis was a thin, 129-pound teenager from Roxborough with curly blond hair.

On Saturday, he was an older version of himself with less hair and a few more pounds but the same love for the TV show and Clark, who died Wednesday in Los Angeles at 82.

“My biggest thrill was dancing with Patti Page,” said Davis, 70, of Jenkintown, who was a regular on the show from 1955 to 1957. “Dick pulled me down from the bleachers.”

Davis was among the hundreds of formerAmerican Bandstand dancers and fans who flooded Studio B at the former WFIL-TV station – the original home of the dance program – to bop, stroll, and twist in Clark’s memory.

The building at 4548 Market St. now houses the Enterprise Center, a nonprofit group that helps minority and disadvantaged entrepreneurs start their own businesses. Studio B is rented out for events such as parties and wedding receptions.

The center opened for public tours Saturday because officials had received so many requests to visit the building since Clark’s death, said Della Clark (no relation), who is president of the center.

From the speakers, the sounds of Chubby Checker, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, and the Beatles provided music with good beats that were easy to dance to.

Arnold Jones, a retired bus driver from North Philadelphia, twirled Grace Short, who works in food service.

Jones, 69, danced on the show twice in the late 1950s. Short, 64, of West Philadelphia, was a regular in 1960 and 1961.

“I saw a few black dancers who I watched [on TV], so I figured the show was for anybody who wanted to come,” Short said.

At the show, she saw James Brown perform in person, and even danced with a white partner.

The first-floor studio is lined with plaques, posters, and other Bandstand memorabilia that the center obtained when Clark auctioned off some of his possessions in 2006.

The building, one of the first to be built as a television station, was the home of American Bandstand until the show moved to Los Angeles in 1964. It later housed WHYY Studios, but fell into disrepair when the public-TV station moved in 1979. MORE

‘American Bandstand’ studios   reopen for tours  in Wake of Dick Clark’s Passing

April 20, 2012, 3:58 p.m. CDT
McClatchy/Tribune – MCT Information Services

PHILADELPHIA _ For seven years it was a hot spot of teenage American pop culture.

From 1957 until 1964, Dick Clark hosted “American Bandstand” at the West Philadelphia studios of WFIL-TV, where thousands of teens dreamed of appearing on the hit show.

But few actually got the chance to dance inside the nondescript building in the shadow of the Market-Frankford El at 46th and Market streets.

If you were one of those teens who yearned for your “Bandstand” moment, here’s your chance.

On Saturday between noon and 3 p.m. the current owners will open the former Studio B for three hours of tours, reminiscing, and perhaps, one last Twist on the dance floor.

“We’ll put on some music and let people have their moment,” said Jeff Wicklund of the Enterprise Center, a nonprofit business incubator which purchased the building in 1995. “We’re just trying to be good stewards of the ‘Bandstand’ legacy.”

***************************************************************

Fans of the show have flocked to the building, dropping off flowers and cards since Clark’s death on Wednesday, Wicklund said.

“There have been a lot of people coming through asking to take a few pictures in studio,” he said. “It’s fairly well preserved with photos, mementos and a mural on the wall.”

When the Enterprise Center bought the structure, it had been abandoned for almost 20 years. It’s now on the National Register of Historic Places. Wicklund said the Center has established an endowment to maintain the “Bandstand” studios, which now play host to private parties, high school proms, weddings and fashion shows.

To fund the endowment, the Center is asking for a $20 contribution for admission on Saturday.

“If you can help us out it would be great,” Wicklund said. “But we’re not going to turn anybody away who can’t afford it.”

Dick Clark tributes planned on

‘American Idol,’ Game Show

Network

Dick ClarkDick Clark’s death Wednesday is prompting near-instantaneous tributes from two television venues where his influence was strongly felt: “American Idol” and the Game Show Network.”Idol” host Ryan Seacrest, Clark’s heir apparent, who co-hosted the “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” specials for the past few years, announced on Twitter on Thursday that the upcoming “Idol” show would contain a tribute to Clark.”We’re putting together a tribute for Dick Clark on @AmericanIdol tonight…just talked to @dizzyfeet [“Idol” executive producer Nigel Lythgoe],” Seacrest wrote.A visibly emotional Seacrest made brief mention of Clark’s passing on Wednesday night’s “Idol” by noting, “Without Dick, a show like this would not exist.”Meanwhile, some of Clark’s greatest nonmusical moments will be replayed over the weekend on Game Show Network, where original remembrances of the man also known as the host of “The $25,000 Pyramid” will be played during reruns of the game show on Friday at 3 a.m., 10 a.m. and during a 10-episode run from 7 p.m. to midnight. Additionally, two more episodes will air Saturday from noon until 1 p.m. (all times Eastern).
