Yesterday,Dick Clark passed away. "American Bandstand" was part of the scene in Philadelphia in the 1950's. Televisions were on all over town. Who would Dick have on the show today? Fraternity pledges from the local colleges could be seen wearing their unusual attire--dark grey suits,white shirts and rep ties. I cannot remember any of the Sororities sending their pledges but those dark grey suits really stood out. Quite a few dates were arranged with older high school "ladies" and the pledges.
All of this is in the past but can still be seen if I close my eyes and think back to the past. These were great times.We were all younger then but maybe those dances would NOT be possible now with this body not quite as young or as flexible as in the past.
I'll miss Dick Clark maybe more so because he didn't seem to age like the rest of us.
