Popular TV show host Dick Clark has passed away at age 82, apparently from a heart attack.
Clark hosted some of our favorite long-running TV shows like American Bandstand, the game show Pyramid, and his annual Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.
As a baby boomer and music fan, I have many fond memories of watching my favorite bands and singers perform on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand over the years. The show underwent various versions since it began in 1952, and has celebrated more than fifty years on television. Clark was also the show’s producer.
Here’s a clip of the 50th Anniversary of American Bandstand.
