We remember Dick Clark (1929-2012)

On April 18, 2012, Dick Clark died of a heart attack.  He was 82 and retired after a stroke a few years ago.

My brother, sister and I used to watch American Bandstand on Saturdays.  It was our weekly dose of songs and chance to see stars interviewed by Dick Clark.  And we got to see all of those kids dancing to the latest pop tunes.  My sister liked watching the girls and the latest fashions.

Dick Clark's American Bandstand was on the air until the late 1980s.  He went from one generation to the other, from Elvis to U2.  I guess that he connected so well because he never "aged".  He looked as young in 1987 as he did in 1967 when we used to watch those Saturday shows.

Dick Clark was great and we thank him for all of the memories.  I used to love that "rate the record" segment and the interviews.
