Passing: Dick Clark

Personally, I preferred Guy Lombardo on New Year's Eve and rather enjoyde rock and roll on the rdaio, but Dick Clark nonetheless impacted all of us. His passing is equally impactful. Here is a rememberance in pictures courtesy of a "hometown" paper - The Philadelphia Inquirer. Though born in Bronxville, New York, a graduate of Syracuse University, and a longtime resident of Southern California, Clark got his television start in the City of Brotherly Love thru a local version of what would later become American Bandstand. Though long removed from Philly (1964), many of us old-timers can still recall those Philadelphia days. So, while there are many great tributes to Dick Clark, we chose to link to one from the place that he firts got his start.
