JOHN RAITT and DICK CLARKOriginal portrait of Clark, drawn by John Raitt, signed by both! Original Art inscribed and signed: "To John/Best Wishes/Dick Clark", 5½x8½. Pencil sketch, also signed by the artist "Raitt". 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. From the 1930s until the end of the century, JOHN RAITT made pencil drawings of famous persons, and then mailed the drawings to the subject with a request that they be autographed for him. Two horizontal folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
