In the year he signed this contract, Tillotson had three Top 40 songs: "Poetry in Motion" reached #1 in the U.K. (January), "Jimmy's Girl" peaked at #25 (February) and "Without You" was #7 (September). Teen idol JOHNNY TILLOTSON (b. 1939) had a dozen Top 10 hits in the late 1950s and early 1960s, including "Poetry in Motion" (#2 in 1960), "It Keeps Right on a-Hurtin'" (#3 in 1962) and "Heartaches by the Number" (1965).

He then took over the local Bandstand program, which was featured 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.
