We just learned a few moments ago -- Dick Clark had passed away at the age of 820. And obviously it was on now on television and out in the forefront of entertainment. For many many years so we thought we would discuss the Clark and his influence on American culture. And your memories of Dick Clark did at the age of 82. And also where did you get your rock and roll music. Basically Dick Clark go ahead it was a big part of that he was the first big televised version. A rock and roll music before that if you've got any -- be from a local station or whatever and that was that. About when he went he was in Philadelphia first in -- -- -- national. It was a big big deal everybody watched it everybody talked about it everybody had their favorite dancers. A wanna know if you were part of that or did you join a Dick Clark later in progress as a game show host. Or maybe as a producer of a gazillion show us. Or maybe at the latter part of his career in New York and New Year's Eve rock and New Year's. Rocking eve as I was trying to say so I would like to hear your memories of Dick Clark. In there where you join the Dick Clark caravan it was a right at the beginning but was -- at a middle wasn't at the end and where did you get your rock and roll music. We have many I was -- Barbara fare right away. In them my music in the morning I would listen to W on the -- in Boston because they have personalities there. And this sometimes in the afternoon WRC in Worcester Massachusetts. But at night it was KB all the way unless they got blocked by WP TR in Albany which is adjacent to them. -- is a 1528. Yards either 1510 or 1540. And sometimes they would block KB and I get angry because I didn't wanna hear the music from a goal pads studios. I wanted those were -- as -- novagold that's who I want of the -- and give me George -- rans and the music. That Dick Clark wasn't flying them -- then was being played a bye George lands on KB. All right so so you get the white versions of everything on Dick Clark at the beginning especially on television. That at night you get the black versions of the same songs which were infinitely better I will say that right away. And having interviewed several of the people that have been that have been on American Bandstand it was a I mean ground. So wanna know did you grow up watching Dick Clark. Where did you get your rock and roll music at 030930180616926. And star 930 Tony where did you -- did you ever watch -- either Clark or get on the Dick Clark bandwagon. Yes they did when I was young my mother was a big fan of and it's so I got introduced to Dick Clark. In this and I like it you know along -- the Obama watch your kids sure nice to be answering along to it. Do you have any moves left now who -- I can move the refresh our -- -- almost kids that would dancing under Clark's -- -- they get the good parking spots now yes being thoroughly almighty god okay go ahead and as far is on the radio who was -- be listening in the morning and in the afternoon. But at night to especially on the weekends at the it was. Dark curse -- rock concert team and midnight special on television worthy two big ones are planted the seeds for -- -- Don Cornelius. -- trains don't train emotional is because he was the first wandered into immigrants. Let's go to two of Franken now want to frank you're on WB yen. Are outraged about memories. I remember back -- Late fifties. Early sixties I couldn't wait to get all from school yup agree -- -- on about the gravity. Brought up the bus and run in the house and senate on. Absolutely couldn't couldn't wait. Keep -- -- and -- cool we're going to be odd you know the latest article it didn't accept performer. Figure out there and -- advocated the answer. It's -- it's always had the product pitches up -- -- -- -- Cingular jitterbug. Or delayed this fall and now. Because -- you brought that up because as a songs came out that dead that I had the -- associated with a that's where you saw them you saw them there obviously you're listening to the stroll. On on the radio you don't see the actual bands but when when they -- play all the dance records whether it's a twist the soul -- of the mashed potatoes. All that other stuff you would see the kids doing those dances and that kind of gave you an inclination as to what the whole package was like. All absolutely and it broke my heart really -- Philadelphia -- so adopting a difficult to teach -- what follows. Figured I -- that the appropriate it's been like he took a hard tighter grip. We're able to west like -- stall he -- ground breaking. We need to do. You don't I -- act director wrote me a -- television search you can actually bigger than the fingers. And duplicated its in its elated are the latest stats this it will carry out. It was Sosa moved to I mean he was first thought is good looking. And Andy really knew how to handle artist. And I had good interviews with the kids and we liked watching the kids that's because is like going to your own high school finance these -- -- professional dancers. Up a lot of those guys that were whatever or let's -- to date -- -- -- -- to see how to put it together because both. Let's face it a lot of those dances that they were worse mood they do exactly what. Were your your dad's or did you dance at home Bryant because Tony just that he spilled his guts out said he used the dance while watching American records that. Try -- it's like I remember -- the small -- out. Eric -- like I think it's looking down embryo the child or get an apartment in order to try to have a partner. And the occupied the heat for it which -- had little to do it. You know he had to get to work together. And we thought those kids were so cool it probably work there in Philadelphia. Probably a lot cooler than most of -- we go at it was fun to watch him dance and because they seem like it seemed like -- they can do what you can do it is these weren't professional. -- little late and you don't Clark. Hit any earlier about it all seemed to be connected to young kids. No matter how old he got he always -- you know it. Connection to that. -- -- There was always -- that thing about Dick Clark for years and years and years didn't look like he aged at call and then all of a sudden he aged in a hurry. Because that was the standard comedian's joke of -- you know Dick Clark was probably six these years all is still look like he was in his thirties. Check out after -- edit stroke that sort of intentional in -- but other than he had before that I demand ever got all -- And so I don't know what he was eating or drinking barked out whatever -- back -- -- -- -- that -- you retire was there ever tight -- program like. He he -- That portrait here at the camp and I pulled my kids' heads as they were grown up or sister or you guys. Yeah they're -- much of what I grew upwards nice and they're digging a few programs that these they're like keeping. I I remember sultry. -- our Internet was cool but don't -- off well. Are. There safeguards were not good amateur -- actually Vietnam War. One you'll -- and rock and roll music I know one last question. Could you watch him at the end I could not watch them on an even after heart out -- -- it was. I can understand why it kept rolling out here. You know collect at the last -- -- strategy -- -- -- -- -- Wired. -- wanted to do it that's I don't it was. -- -- I'd trying to much. Jordan being the ones I asked if -- was true -- -- Clark was in term no no not true. Within the last hour we've got word that Dick Clark had died and were asking your memories regarding Dick Clarke he died at the age of 82. He he really broke rock and roll into television. And changed of viewing habits and then people. I could get their rock and roll on a few stations here and there radio stations but that was the big television deal. And anyone on of course to game show host and producer of a gazillion shows. And -- died at the agency to your memories when did you join the Dick Clark Ervin was -- early on. Wind when you would watch those kids dance was that later. New Year's rock any of and what did you catcher rock and roll music. I got mine and in Boston Worcester Massachusetts and in buffalo buffalo at night because that's going to get it was like maybe it was George hound dog reds was playing the black version of the music. The Dick Clark was playing on American. Let's code to love Mike in Pennsylvania Mike you're on WB yen. They been able. In my according. Shocked when they're done here station there. I'd say it was nineteen. Or street 2000. And not twelve years ago. And I met. Dick Clark personally. I hadn't won a vision retreats we've got to not grand Turk ultimately really okay and not based. Walk the beach down there and and there -- just beautiful house on the point it was a cold with about six houses -- And now -- look at that look at look at summit distances exploit just by his hairdo. That I look like -- Clark. Well planned I come to find out opponent sounding yet it is that is one of his place should he go too well so every day I -- -- walk. And -- wait until we're there for two weeks cool and not. So they'll -- before we left it up big parties don't overshoot on the beach in a cook out. And he came down which is but they give his girl. It was seventieth time. And this girl was probably. 3540. Sounds about right okay. I don't see it bigger than life. You come down and he introduced himself but median have to do your -- looked just like you did since dollar brought up with him from the beginning it time. You know right from the first time museum for years and years and years and you know look any different he -- the exact same. It's -- he would have been seventy Andean. And now he group or issues let this. We -- having hot dogs and hamburgers and all that eight question he was just like in every gay person nothing fancy. Collided village -- drink and other than -- I'm never never forget I mean especially when he locked out of Beck couldn't believe you come down to join -- Nice story I'm I'm really glad you told that hey thank you very Russia this year that. In case my friend Donna -- living from it was going from -- in Pennsylvania -- caucus that like to share memories because he got off the same school bus I get off. A couple of stops later also my sister Beverly who usually doesn't appear on the show but she listens on a streaming. And I I recall. She is a couple of years younger than 9 am -- -- she was a big American Bandstand and an on an issue like rock and roll issues that. She used this I use my record player. Which judge -- used illegally and without formal permission to listen to her -- a record for a little rock and roll records were weenie records. In don't know much more real honest to goodness.

We wanna know about your memories -- Dick Clark let's go to Jim in west Seneca. -- -- on WB yen. Any idea. It's a little sidebar here are important article in the New Orleans and what.

Yeah -- big guns involved and always seemed a little strange your boat Columbia gave with the did you know I mean it can use. Our -- Robiskie I mean I was -- It combining popular artists that don't George was George you wouldn't and the songs on George flying. The debt clock was not playing the same -- -- different -- Get -- every night at. That happy that it came -- and got. And I'm listening to him what to think there's some plot. That's funny thank you Burton bring us into the real world there well you know -- when your friends but be okay. You couldn't get away FM station. -- one. They had no advertising and an audience whatever. He was well ahead of his time that I can I do that and of course because of his enormous influence -- on the East Coast. George Will -- related ground breaker Georgetown programmes. Of forgetting black music played. You know widely. That was right here so Dick Clark during the mid afternoon will be playing the -- White versions of most of the songs and George -- black versions that night but the differences as we've mentioned earlier. When watching Dick Clark as you can watch the kids that's. And so if there was a song out there was a dance like the stroll -- mashed potatoes reveal whatever. The -- -- even as it is to -- you could see how they get it. And then try it your all yourself in the privacy of your home before embarrassing yourself at the high school stands. -- back -- we want your memories. A Dick Clark when did you -- what oh did you like about the Clark and where did you get your rock and roll music will be back. -- we're reaching out to I'd talk some people who may have had associates with Dick Clark including. My good dear friend and never. However endeavors line's busy you know is doing. When he goes there every afternoon -- I'm just saying you know. As a way -- answered the phone and and and to talk to us because while I was enjoying. George Lorenz. Hound dog playing Leo black versions of the white songs that Dick Clark was playing. Never was on the staff but I never heard him because it was on during the daytime and I could only your -- at night. So we wanna hear from viewing your memories of Dick Clark was dead at the age of 82. You talk about an innovator I mean he inherited that shell but he really made it happen. Started in the Philadelphia them once -- when the national. And you would run home and get off the bus and watched kids just like yourself dancing. And they be doing dances that you never seen before like the stroll that's where their own goes. You didn't get to see the dances the dancers. Because. I generally your listening on the radio and there are no pictures on the radar figure that out early. A who wanna know your memories of their -- where did you get your rock and roll music. They don't trade on Montreal 18061692. V6 and -- my third in the first person says me. I'm going to crown I will. -- Oh well absolutely destroyers -- don't say that let's go to Davie on a cell phone -- here on WBN. -- there -- find it -- you do you'll meet Clark. I did it. Back in the eighties I wore -- Chubby Checker. From actually from 1982 to 87. And actually ever out of a couple times should -- chubby child and one time in New York clue what was it like. Partly what was he like that school -- as the new had actually -- really -- public land. Not a joke sheet. Know our look at me I'm a star users -- caught him by first name and what should you know took -- candy were -- -- Or just a really -- -- it was a -- for third birthday party. That we credit at all and payroll accounts and changeup. And the backyard -- compare certain candidates have a barbecue I abandoned chubby and then. Mr. Clark reports was there a couple Bernsen. It was really cool. I interviewed a Chubby Checker when he was dating a married to miss world I think. In the sixth and the -- sure that your guys cheap people Colin. He pulled in front -- WD RC a Blue Hills avenue in a Rolls Royce that he drove himself I was really impressed -- al-Qaeda. I was really -- He's got a night terrors you go to -- driving actually well better over the -- Arch arch all the fleet Boston that he leased out to different rock band in the country and make like they're poorer whoever came over. To -- -- -- America he released the ball is still little band he actually broke apart -- be at a road. Well orbiter. That is going drove a bus at a world flights ago I was and a -- was versatile well thank you I'm glad to talk to somebody who had met Dick Clark and Chubby -- to thank you very much. I interviewed Chubby Checker in the sixties. And -- the Porter -- from WD RC had arranged -- and he came along would know lot of -- drove a Rolls Royce but I gotta tell you is a funny story. Before the interviews about the start which are back and forth is that. He goes on scrape -- on snow whipped tonight to the Australia -- scoring really takes about you which you know obviously. He says different notes however denied these he's telling me how well the isn't a touring really takes. Okay so I certainly interview a Chubby -- hear him address while Bubba Bubba. You to an album me and I bet that takes a lot of idea of that right is good -- -- Here's what he says to me while he's saying this to me he's got his columns upside down in his head cocked sideways he goes. All know sandy. Touring I get a chance to get around the fans let and I go to -- while I get from the guys I give him the evil lies. But it was the it was funny interview he was very good but there again everything related around America best that we've seen a million times in American bands that. Once were doing a package show where -- package all these acts all the rock and relax and they play the bush now. And go what the of people in the active I was introducing with Percy Sledge. When a man loves a woman who I'd just sit in on Dick Clark and he had a rag on -- the first artist I've ever introduce that was wearing a dual Wragge that was critical. And I'm standing right there and I'm think and how the thing gee I really love when a man -- one because I do. I I I was thinking this was just some -- Span so that was kind of cool I never met I never meant to declare myself. About I've met a lot of the artists that appeared on Dick Clark Connie Francis and but the Beach Boys certainly but they weren't late in integrating the music because that was the style -- was any racial that was just what they did did -- ever appear and I'm sure he was on American -- I never saw among American. The first breakthrough. Appearance was on its Solomon I actually know the Dorsey Brothers Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey at a show opposite Ed Sullivan. And -- actually Elvis appeared there before it was and it's well of the Ed Sullivan was a big breakthrough. All right let's go to Bonnie in Clarence Bonnie -- on WB in any memories of Dick Clark. I I think and I certainly can like can remember running home run ball and not a marriage and they can't get. Learning curve are what -- we're -- like a little. And I remember lack of England Bob that army needs me. Just think oh well he -- and car rally -- true. I -- -- let my favorite -- old and dot. I -- I absolutely -- New York can be on hand and well I think art and -- on a new church age. But we are important for me. -- Burris tomorrow these audio -- -- still on the -- weekends from the a rock and roll hall of -- -- -- -- The idea as he does he does one shift a weekend cousin -- and a one time he owned a radio station in Northampton mass which is where my wife was from and that's station was looking like a hundred yards from where she lived. Well now I don't get to meet him. But I don't wanna I don't know if you expect fair and -- all records back -- can honestly I mean things aren't -- -- will. Draw those guys. Cool -- -- Clinton had the -- -- here he. Looked like a baby and they are all those good looking boys look the same call outlets have -- -- turning on the TV and watching the kids dance because they are your page or my age they lowered the price okay. -- Alt on start run and I and look at the wrong line. A big or how they're not professional dancers they were like you -- Don't know that I just -- that. -- really born and. -- Okay thanks Bonnie -- edit our -- -- I must admit from that the them so those answers those females were voluptuous. They really were no I'm really I only watched it. Because of the music right I knew that someday I would be a -- and world mr. Newton and I would be able to show one that's the only reason I certainly do more. Because the girls on -- Stan world while more voluptuous them most of the girls not all of them but. Mostly girls and number school on -- The way it is there anybody emerged with him I don't mean that the but as it. Or just jeans wearing today I was always in the fashion. Sure yeah there are buying -- a US and swamp land this. Okay. Plus they let me. -- -- -- -- -- -- can't really. Does. That last lady there are remembered that Bonnie remembered adjusting corral adjusting and Bob or like the hot couple. A dancing on American Bandstand. Well my best friend since third grade is on the line mostly shipments -- the right number here Don though Lander from slaughtered in. Dick Clark's passing -- just took away part of our childhood. It took away an awful lot of it sandy -- I didn't realize that it that you. Talked about it. Remember we army when the same school bus home you've got off a couple of stops later united I'd run I'd run in the house in the watch and see -- watch him dance and see what was going on that you always -- in music though you always like the black version of the songs. And we weren't even aware a lot of the songs that that you promoted and got -- turned on the ground. Yeah with the depth and write it -- that. What are your memories Dick Clark. The memory guide at the same thing you did that would -- on. And out. -- are on TV and watch it and a lot of music and I. I wasn't dead bigoted dancing but I do remember it just seen in and bought Clayton in someone name Arlene in it was a Kenny Rossi I believe. While. Ago -- an average just think Morelli was the object of our -- loss. At. But we all watch it and in school everybody talked about it the next day. Absolutely. It was the happening it was a saying it was a it was but what was what was going. And that's the only way to learn the dances because they were on television -- who I had no chance to learn them from a certainly from the news radio was this song but if you want to see the stroll or but the mashed potatoes later on stuff like that had to watch your arguments then. Absolutely a bigot I I -- -- for Philadelphia she tried to get in there one day at the C you know to be on the shelf where she was -- admitted because they had just. Favorite that would automatically get in error but that. Could allow we have guys who worked him in a bubble television's very successfully as part of our news they -- Rick gays are channel seven. And he worked at the same television station and he told me that. When Dick Clark was on vacation locally he would do the show so we'll try to get holding him to is as name's Rick is our Don thanks for the memories that are. And I Democrat. Alin afraid -- number one -- jockey back in the old days along with Allen. That's our -- -- and that's how it was so much better you turn this on and on and I'll always be grateful for that. All right thank you but locked up. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I'm fine with one -- music I think Jerry Myers have been around the business for a long time did you ever have any dealings with -- Clark is people. Well I would and they show one. I lived in Philadelphia for a short period back around 1958. And I got in there is just as a spectator and watch. Almost good looking women. Look at a high school girls danced remind us in line. Or. And remember the time that you and I have ones with -- here and sound. And and he's connected with the American Bandstand stuff and that is your rock and roll those were magic days. Boy they sure I remember seeing -- I mean when I first started in the business in in now 1959. It was like -- -- -- -- WNY it was at that time and Bobby -- would come up because they're playing nickel and casino at all how could -- and in the local promotion guys would bring these guys up and it was just. What a great time -- -- and get people sending me it was. It was phenomenal. In -- -- you -- you are among the top. One are true record promotion people in the hill country. In order to really get maximum exposure on television I would assume if you -- working any of those records they had you have to get your artists on American bans that. He I don't think Ditka Clark go would -- with the would a guy who broke records I think it was a guide it. Enhancement to but excellent yeah exactly so they they would they would break out in certain markets and then he'd bring -- here yeah yeah right would that would George Lorenzen then. Then you get then you get to see -- and ended they would they would enhance their careers. Actually buffalo you know that this whole and -- states truly is we're almost Philadelphia -- Broken their their records if they would just jump on that your way wherever there was a power they would stop and hand out you know back before. Even I was in the business I mean -- -- -- it was supposedly well work. A couple of years ago I interviewed -- Summers who's from here. And after I did -- surcharge find out on a television show this year and she's with Bobby -- she's singing with Frank Sinatra. I mean there's a lot of locals tell on the came here that made the national stages. -- as the justice and isn't. I tried the Everly Brothers here I remember seeing Paul -- when he had to stand up on the chair at a cocktail parties think Diana mean would even talk about -- Just stand on the floor and saying so I mean that the it was a great city for break the records and you know I mean awful how. But you talk a program. I mean there was really nobody better than. No nobody better than George runs ever ever ever and and he would enhance the records buys it is simply the way he introduced them I mean it was just marvelous and nice that that we all got to be a part of history through Georgian. You work a lot of those records Jerry and so you you you've seen the scene so sorry to -- capacity to but he certainly it was a ground breaker. Well he was I know he was ill I guess he'd had a stroke and duck. Again supposedly you didn't -- there was a guy just can't achieve either I was watching that. At dinner within ten days ago and -- supposedly in great spirits last week or so I guess is folks. Couldn't I could not watch him after he had a stroke because I grew up with them and like I just couldn't. I'd Jerry. Or get Dion and woman gonna threesome. The first Democrats -- threes it would to a guys thank you can abide. Jerry and I and the on that was it for -- at the airport at a restaurant they're having -- and the aren't talking about. The lawyers have right now on the words exactly for the copyright -- songs. And the rock and -- songs. Are sometimes nonsensical when you look at the lyrics it was a quiet moment in the early days where. Asking you about your memories of Dick Clark who died today at the age of 820 and did you get your rock and roll music will be back. I just talked to my idea bass France's third grade we went through together. And it's something you remember he overruled them just income rally idol just in growing. She was probably the most -- high school dancer in the history of television and the -- -- And Bob -- a -- even remembered a difference that I've I've plotted that out but was Bob he's right now. Gorelick and of them better than Bob achieved. Grown up -- a member of Massachusetts but she didn't jurors in Philadelphia and -- his wife was from Philadelphia. He she tried to get through a bans them but the authorities. Removed her bodily. Let's go to your memories of that park. He went Snyder here oh he was an influence on him right. -- yes indeed. OK okay real quick I don't know a lot of people timeline here about political candidates want to get their record yeah everybody remembers images today -- and into the seventies but -- Many people remember the turntable. It was under WW. -- -- square. Bad thing about your room there's records there. Well -- rude but that was on Broadway there was leaving polka music. Are both that I don't use to do commercials for ribs -- -- and I also records -- being in Michigan. And mother goals that is fine -- from the Zanzibar. -- -- -- but the -- wine and a record one of virtual book -- In just eat chicken and Leo. I'll bet these great memories -- and. Texaco and Politico was good golfer instead the oil and Taylor. While you're at buffalo -- can tell you that. And then there was AMA days believe and that's a really good records but that isn't a couple of more. The black kids. We -- so. -- land and orange street rushed the boss Aybar rep rush the boss. Well and they brought little oh really homeland. My book that I used to go earlier told. And you do it and it's so gross for Boris you wanna record each that I know exactly where it is -- need to get out under a and then there was. Iraq and active in the drugstore. Linda Miller stated these attitudes public is to go and buy their records. And then there's quarters to you know and they want to do buttons and bought. Why -- you forget that my department stores had record apartments within them. And if it was exciting when a record came out oftentimes it wouldn't be -- yet you'd go to the OnStar and be you be disappointed and I mean if that was a big part of our lives when a new song came out. -- in the days really good record revenues in the back and restore the bills startup one on the use domain but on the other side. And you Glenn -- -- her record -- resurrected and they think they all have all of them sort of records and there are over Jerry Lee Lewis and cool and -- all that stuff of -- brother died when their popular records there was a great little little place to get record by Mehmet did actually at a school in there. The first the thing I bought the turntable here is owned -- do weighing -- LP the turntable. She he later married -- of the woman who work. Buried Waylon Jennings Jesse Coulter gives she was married there were him once when it. -- was connected would doing an Eddie told him he'd play guitar for him or vice Versa I forget where it's. A guitar player of that. Great memory. Remember -- some great memories you thank you thank you very much. A department stores what did you did you record. -- fare okay yeah department stores and later discount stores had. Record departments and now it's hardly -- stormy. -- -- -- -- -- When he started record their record there was here when I got here is -- article on there and high school we had a major. Major footprint as far as music is concerned. But when I -- came out. You would die you can hardly wait to get it if you and you save up they were like a -- But can you say about and later after school one when the guys get together and play music like Landry and -- -- and -- -- Gibson Brothers -- Everybody would bring what you had for records. And then we pretend to be disc jockeys I told him betterment wanna rebounds. Everybody wanted to George Lawrence. All Lander was such a fan of up and he loved Lorenzen he's on the turn me on to a but some of these -- discharges that had big names they were okay from regulars but they weren't personalities. Lorenzo was personality. I would take a break it will be back now Fareed in the break with the American hot wax I know and it was very influential but. As in my Canada Ireland was because he was New York City was the buffalo buffalo -- and George. -- -- for it was okay but his post it was submarine races and I mean it's telling the same joke every day. Lorenzo was a master. He was like a painter he painted word pictures that. That. To this day when I hear all these played I can remember the way George Lorenz introduced him. I mean that's the kind of impact and that was more than a couple of years ago. And I will be back tomorrow -- beach in government. Yes so there's no question about it American Bandstand set the show's set the pace for television music on television. In my third radio job when I was in Springfield Massachusetts I did a five night a week and stand -- show we used to tape Ramallah Saturdays. It would be that we do 51 hour shows back to back to back to back just change clothes and whatever. And the thing that was the hardest for me to do because I was just the wisecracking disc jockey I tried to be as smooth as Dick Clark. What I found out it wasn't easy to be as -- as their Clark. Because if you if you modest than the older card -- He's extremely good at handing off going from in you know. And interviewed to the music and you'd see the dancers start up -- a very smooth very good a lot of fun doing it. But it was -- dual core -- of course of American Bandstand but that's how we all started we set about watching. Those high school kids dance and guess what we just got out of school ourselves so that our professional dancers. It's not like you know -- Dancing With The Stars these were all adds. And we know we like that we admired them and what I found out via secret is that Tony Caligiuri. Used to watch the same thing earlier on later actually admitting. But he used to dance. In my friend gone. I'm not sure I think he might have been doing some dance and I was doing all -- I was an incident dancing I was intrusive than just being Gorelick. However. Are not available either one let's go to Tom and silver -- time you're on WB -- Today you don't see Andy why did you actually go to America's best and I I have to tell you this story. -- built in 1953. Sport Dick Clark really took over a guy by the name pop or more yet he -- yeah. That he started bands right built this room and they just -- local it's from the -- schools there and and dance. And my senior year in some other guys took off. Cool when in the belly and got -- -- cool. And I don't think that it will be we.
