Dick Clark, oh my gosh as a little girl My sisters and I would watch sometimes on a small tv, black and white was all there was. We would then hang out in the porch grandma had an old trunk of dresses, we would put them on and dance pretending we were on American Bandstand! What a blast from the past!

There aren't many that have the combination of dignity, grace and youthful spirit of Dick Clark. Rock'n roll heaven has gained a host. He is missed.

I remember watching that as a kid. We loved it. Loved the song theme, by Barry Manilow, American Bandstand! Will miss Dick Clark that's for sure!

I don't think it would be so great to see it now. It would scare me! I used to dress like that.

I was really out there but I loved it so much. I can't even remember more than a few phrases from the way I spoke back then. If I could see and hear it now I might injure myself from laughter.

I think it would be hilarious !!! Picture all of us sitting around, reminiscing, while watching American Bandstand with the old hair styles and dress styles! I can hear the comments now!!!

Amazing to think about that, right, Gabby! Rather enjoy it in a bit of a vacuum … not so personal! I don't want to vizualize how we dressed then either! Takes me back to Saturday afternoon "shopping trips" when my dad was available with the only car in the family and my mother insisted that I could not walk out the front door unless I was in a dress.

OMG...flash back! I am in pain right now....with laughter. Yes, I remember those days. How far I have fallen from those graces.

What's the old expression: they would turn over in their graves! Actually, mine turned out to not be any where near as conservative as she acted in my youth. Don't know if it was a good show for me then or if she just figured out how to live life better as she aged.

Caught her kissing a neighbor at 88! He was married, she was a little embarassed, I thought it was funny, and my sister was incensed since "it violated" all those things mom had taught her and she still believed. Think you can see who had the least fun in my family! I think I probably had the most.

I copied what I wrote on the other one

Gives me hope for a long life!
Dick Clark was as American as Apple Pie!
He was part of us all and in every American living room
Who didn't watch band stand?
I learned to dance watching it as a kid
I hope they remember him with each dropping of the
New year's ball in times square every year
He will forever be in my Hall of fame

I know, it is hard to see such an icon of youth go. I will always remember him young. They were showing clips of him at American Band Stand and wow...what a few years can do. He was the epitome of fun. He will be missed sorely.
