Dick Clark host of American Band Stand, Dick Clark of Dick Clark Productions, Dick Clark social activist (first man to mainstream Negro Music on TV), Dick Clark game show host and Dick Clark New Years Eve in Time Square.
If you are over the age of 30 yrs. old you know the name and the image of Dick Clark. If you are under the age of 30 yrs old Dick Clark impacts you whether you realize it or not. American band Stand is the pre-cursor to MTV and VH1.
The National Association of Broadcasters is currently convening in Las Vegas and we as a community are hosting a legendary moment in broadcast history.
Wherever Dick Clark resides tonight, I am sure “it is the great beat of the sound” that he is most enjoying.
If I were to rate this legend, it has to be a 10 and the beat goes on forever.
