Richard Wagstaff "Dick" Clark (born in 1929) began his career in broadcasting as a radio disc jockey on WFIL in 1952. He then took over the local Bandstand program, which went on national TV as American Bandstand in 1957. Clark hosted the show for thirty years, 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. He has also hosted TV specials and game shows and promoted the American Music Awards as an alternative to the Grammys. Three items.
