Will be sadly missed......because of him, we are able to watched singers of the 50s and 60s performing their hits on TV & video.

Yes, many of the video clips are filmlets of Dick Clark's TV show from American Bandstand without which we won't be able to savour the 50s and 60s.

Thanks Doc Lee for visiting.

Our free channels rarely air programs hosted by Dick Clark. They did but that was many many years ago. Dick was a great host for popular music and songs. I do miss Dick's programs.

I meant to explain that some of the clips we watch on You Tube are from Dick Clark's show.

He's legend now.
