Standard AFTRA Engagement Contract between Click Corporation (Clark) and Chip Taylor for his appearance on American Bandstand on March 13, 1961. Also signed: "Chip Taylor" as Performer. Richard Wagstaff "Dick" Clark (1929-2012) began his career in broadcasting as a radio disc jockey on WFIL in 1952, then took over the local Bandstand program (1956-1957), which went on national TV as American Bandstand in 1957. Clark hosted the show for 30 years (1957-1987), and, especially in the early years, exerted a great influence on the styles and musical tastes of young Americans. At the same time, Clark's strict dress code and preference for milder music helped rock music gain acceptance by parents. Clark has also hosted a number of TV specials, including his annual Rockin' New Year's Eve shows (which he missed for the first time in 32 years after he suffered a minor stroke in late 2004) and game shows, and has produced a long list of TV programs and specials. He has also promoted the American Music Awards as an alternative to the Grammys.Singer/songwriter CHIP TAYLOR likely appeared on American Bandstand to sing his first Top 100 single, "Here I Am" (1961).

During the 1970s and 1980s, he recorded six solo albums, including Chip Taylor's Last Chance, which was lauded by "Rolling Stone" magazine as one of the best country albums of 1973, and he also produced for other artists, including Neil Diamond's album, Brooklyn Roads.
