From the American TV documentary series This Is Your Life, here's a portion of the 1959 episode that featured Dick Clark. From 1952 to 1961, this show would surprise a guest and proceed to take them through their life in front of an audience including family and friends. Interestingly, Clark was only 29 years old at the time, which showcases just how popular and accomplished he was early on in his career. Oh and he was definitely a good-looking guy.
And of course, we must include a little music in every post. Here's the full clip of The Beach Boys' 1964 appearance on American Bandstand (performing "Don't Worry Baby"), and includes Dick Clark's introduction and follow-up interview with the group. The Boys look at a little uncomfortable without their instruments, but cute clip nonetheless.
Clip is broken up into two videos.
Farewell to a legendary figure and radio pioneer. We will miss you, Dick Clark!
