With the death of Dick Clark yesterday at the age of 82, Philadelphia and the rest of the world lost a huge music champion. Action News had excellent coverage that included interviews with Chubby Checker and Jerry "The Geator" Blavat, who had Dick Clark write the intro to his recent book. Here are a few of the outstanding videos about Dick Clark that have surfaced.
My original Rock Review that aired on Eyewitness News in 1980. I was a DJ on 94 WYSP at the time; thus the "Rating" I gave Dick Clark at the end of the report: a "94".
Local musician and producer of the yet-to-be-released film documentary "Philly Pop Music, The Lost Pioneers," George Manney, has a promo trailer for his film that includes coverage of American Bandstand.
WHYY has some great footage of American Bandstand on their front homepage: www.whyy.org
