American Bandstand

Started in the studios of Philadelphia's WFIL-TV, Dick Clark hosted the nation's longest running and most popular dance show throughout almost its entire run.

The show was moved to Los Angeles in 1964 and featured regular dancers and the opportunity for many musical artists to have their first national television exposure.
