I give it an 85. Like anybody remembers American Bandstand? Damn, I’m getting old.


*UPDATE* (RIP) Dick Clark November 30, 1929 – April 18, 2012

I never realized that someday people would find this page when Dick Clark died, but it is what it is.

Here’s a link to a nice video tribute to him. The headline of this post (for all you youngsters) refers to a segment of the show called Rate-a-Record, or something like that. Clark would play a brand new record and have two different couples rate it, and then he would average the two and come up with a score like, say, 82½. It always amazed me by how he could instantly average the fractions. Of course, this was also before I knew about the shows being taped and edited.
