American Bandstand, the most popular rock-n-roll dance show of all time introduced us to many of the hottest dance moves over the years and became a part of American television history by bringing rock-and-roll music into millions of households. This long-running dance show was hosted by "America's oldest teenager," Dick Clark. Regular features on AB were "Rate-A-Record," "The Spotlight Dance," AB's "Dance Contest" and the AB "TOP TEN." American Bandstand began as a local Philadelphia dance show called Bandstand on October 13-17, 1952 on WFIL-TV Channel 6 and Dick Clark brought this show to national attention on August 5-9, 1957 when the show first debuted on ABC-TV. It was a daily fixture from its premiere up to August 30, 1963 when the show found its permanent home on Saturday afternoons beginning on September 7, 1963. Not only did the schedule change, but the show itself moved from its home in Philadelphia, PA to its new permanent home in Los Angeles, CA on February 8, 1964. B
