When did The Beatles appear on American bandstand?

They never personally did, but instead sent in musical clips, pre-curser to music video's, to the show. Song's like "rain", "Hello Goodbye", and famously, "strawberry Feilds Forever/Penny Lane", in which it was the first time the "kids" saw the Beatles with beards and mustaches. Some commented they looked like grampas'. Intresting note: in 1963 Dick Clark and Swan records had the opportunity to release the Beatles in the US under their label, but Dick took one look at them and said they'll never fly. The rate a record segment on American Bandstand had "she loves you" and it scored poorly.

Who was the host of 'American Bandstand'?

American Bandstand started as a local Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA show known only as Bandstand. As the Philadelphia area (only) show, it was hosted by Bob Horn from 1952 until mid 1956, when Mr. Horn was discharged. Tony Mammarella, the show's producer, temporarily filled in as host until they signed Dick Clark. Through the personal efforts of Dick Clark, the Network was persuaded to air the show nationally.

The show was renamed from "Bandstand" to "American Bandstand" in 1957, coincident with it becoming a nationally broadcast program. Dick Clark was the host at that time (1957) and remained the host until early 1989. The last six months of the show's long run was hosted by David Hirsch. The lights went off for good in late 1989 with David Hirsch at the helm.

How did Dick Clark make American bandstand popular?

His timing was perfect. Rock and Roll was brand new, America was in an era of post-WWII prosperity and teenagers had money to spend. Clark had such a great rapore with the teens that came to dance on the weekly show and he really seemed to be having fun also.

What is after taste as an American idom?

Literally, an after-taste refers to a lingering flavor that is still on your tongue even after you've swallowed or spit out something.

Figuratively, an after-taste describes the lingering effects of an encounter or incident. For example, one might say, "our last boss was so untrustworthy that my co-workers and I are still experiencing an after-taste."

An after-taste usually refers to something negative.

Did Dick Clark have segregation on American Bandstand?

Answer.Yes Dick Clark did have segregation on American Band Stand. While Black artists were permitted to perform, only white dancers were allowed. They feared the backlash that might happen if Black boys danced close to white girls. Black teenagers were banned. There was a protest in the early 60's, I think it was 1963 (my parents were there as teens). Eventually Black teens were allowed.

Who were the African-American teens who persisted until they got on American Bandstand in October 1957?

None. No such thing happened, so the answer is in three parts. 1. Hairspray (the movie) is not a documentary. It is not even a Docu-Drama. It is a fictional performance that only vaguely resembles some things from the 1950's. 2. American Bandstand was not limited to "only white" dancers. 3. Any racist similarities between Hairspray (the movie) and the real events of the 1950's in the U.S. are lifted from events regarding the Buddy Deane Show. The Buddy Deane show was another 'dance-to-the-hits' show broadcast from Baltimore. That is the show that did not mingle Black and white dancers on the same dance floor. That is the show that had 'all-black' Fridays (taking into account that the show was a Daily show). When the Buddy Deane Show was pressured to integrate white and black dancers (like American Bandstand had already been doing), the show's powers-that-be refused and the show was subsequently cancelled.

Did Ryan Secrest at one time host American Bandstand?

NO, Ryan Seacrest never hosted American Bandstand. Amerian Bandstand was a show hosted by Dick Clark for many years. After he left the show, David Hirsch hosted for a short period, but no one could replace the amazingt Dick Clark. Ryan Seacrest was most likely a child at this time and was busy eating donuts and beign a pudgy fat kid :) It wasnt until his later years that he began hosting and got involved in the entertainment industry.

The film footage is lost. It had been ruined when it was transferred after it had been aired and was destroyed. If there were any remaining copies it is highly unlikely.

American Bandstand used 35 to 98 to Rate-A-Record why did they use those numbers?

A couple of selected dancers got to play "Rate a Record," where they heard two songs and graded them on a scale of 35 to 98 (the range, according to Clark, reflecting the notion that no song is all bad or perfect). Other occasional features were the displaying of the week's top 10 records, and the yearly dance contest.

http://www.memorabletv.com/tvsgreatesthits/americanbandstand.htm

A segment of American Bandstand, in which two of the dancers in the audience were asked, by host Dick Clark, to rate a new 45 on a 35-to-98 scale. The reason for the choice of range was, according to Clark, because a song was never so bad that it deserved a really low score, and no song was so perfect that it deserved a 100.

Who was the host for the program American bandstand?

The host for the famous "American Bandstand" TV dance show was the one and only-Dick Clark. I just heard that when the TV show premiered in 1955, it wasn't on the ABC-TV network, but on a local TV station in Philadelphia, PA. It became so popular and so successful that within only two years later in 1957, ABC-TV came to Dick Clark with a contract to have him do the show for more money in either Hollywood or Burbank, California. It was an excellent offer that no one could refuse, so Dick took it and became extremely famous and successful with it~"Benito".
