Dick Clark RIP

| fbedell@queenscourier.com |

I am sadden as many are as we read or heard the news of the passing of Dick Clark, who was called America’s oldest teenager. My prayers go to his family at this time. He was larger than life and brought Rock and Roll into our homes for many years. I remember living in Queens Village in the 60’s and watched American Bandstand.

I got to see the latest dances and the newest singers who got their start on his show and who went on to the big time. Let’s not forget for decades we brought in the New Year with Dick Clark in his show called,” Rocking Roll Eve.” Now on the many different shows he hosted it was said he hated to say goodbye but would say,” So long or So long for now.”

Let me say than Goodbye Dick and thanks for the memories, for you will truely be missed and as a teenager of long ago let me also say,” Thanks for a rocking roll good time.”
