    I have great memory’s of Dick Clarke while I was growing -up in the Bronx . I always look forward to the song that was in or the news dance’s that where the rage. The last time I saw Dick was on the New Years Eve show. I wanted to cry because he was trying so hard to talk after he suffer the stoke. I know deep in my heart that the oldest living teenager will be playing songs for God in American Band Stand Heaven. He will be miss by this loyal fan. Good Bye Dick and God Bless You.
