About This Item

Philadelphia: WFIL-TV, 1955. First Edition. Very good.. Souvenir book for the 1955 season of BANDSTAND. The program, originally airing simultaneously on Philadelphia radio and television station WFIL became a major hit in the local market and was eventually picked up by ABC and renamed AMERICAN BANDSTAND hosted by Dick Clark. The iconic live pop music show was a major part of the creation story for the American teenager. This program dates from the third season of the show, featuring the original host Bob Horn. With numerous photographs of the Bandstand studio, fans, performers and crew, the year book describes the inner workings of the show, spotlights fans, visitors to the show and recent acts like Debbie Reynolds, Rudy Vallee, and Tony Bennett. An rare interesting relic from the beginnings of a touchstone of 20th century pop culture. Not found in OCLC. Wraps. 4to. Saddle-stapled in photographic wraps printed in black and pink. Minor toning to wraps. Very slight toning to interior pages. Single portrait excised but present. Housed in original manila envelope, with many signatures at verso, including that of Bob Horn, lightly edgeworn. Very good.
