What a trip down Memory Lane! I've briefly looked through this book and am loving it so far. Arlene Sullivan did a fantastic job of compiling pictures and memories from a memorable show. I will always remember coming home from school and immediately turning on the TV to see "AMERICAN BANDSTAND." The Philadelphia years were my favorites, and Dick Clark will always be remembered.

THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES
Bandstand Diaries brought back so many memories. I used to come home from school throw my homework on the bed. My Mom would be cooking my brothers would be playing and my Dad I would be working. I would be in the front room to myself so I got my Dad footstool and set right in front of the TV and have my enjoyment of the day. Bandstand Diaries brought all this back to me and reading about all my favorites one of my favorites was Myrna she was the one that had Polio she was one of my favorites for one thing she had a brace and I had braces too. So when I saw her I felt gee she like me and here she is dancing on Bandstand. Thank you Arlene and all the others for making the book. Carol Gorman

A Wonderful Trip Down Memory Lane
I am assuming that everyone who reads this book grew up during that era...how could you not love it ??? It was an innocent time, a different time, but we had our "idols", regular kids like us, who made it to the show. Not so different from the reality shows of today, if you think about it, where you don't have to have a specific talent to be a celebrity. The big difference : those kids weren't seeking fame, and most were embarrassed by their popularity, at least at first. Arlene was always my favorite, so natural, almost plain, but so pretty, nonetheless...reading the story from her perspective makes it even more of a page turner....and the pictures, love the pictures...

A piece of Philly history! A must-read.
Oh, the memories this evoked! The book is so much more than I had expected. Growing up in Bucks County (Doylestown) in the Philly era is something I am grateful for. And much of it had to do with the music, Bandstand and the "regulars." Even after almost 60 years, it is a part of who I am. If you weren't in Philly or the burbs during that awesome time, you missed a lot! I don't ever remember knowing that Bandstand was seen all over the country - I thought it was just a Philly thing. Skipping school to get down to 46th & Market cherry cokes, smoking cigarettes and turning out collars up and the music and dancing! It was idyllic. Arlene, Ray and Sharon, THANK YOU! Thanks for it all. Not just the memories, but this fabulous book that records that short span in Philly history that changed everything. The book was so in-depth and rich. It answered all the questions I've ever had about that time. If you were a teenager, whether in Philly or not, during the 50s and early 60s, you will love this book!

My sister loved the book
My sister loved the book! She emailed me two days after receiving it that she hadn't had time to respond because she was reading it! She remarked that there was also history of the period (never thought I'd be referring to my teenage years as a period!) that brought back so much. I had heard of the book on WGN radio several months ago and put a reminder about it for her 70th birthday. She was nursing her husband through cancer and I hoped it would bring back happier times of their life. I hope she'll send it to me to read when she can.

Running home to watch it even writing Justine and her response was good send a stamp next time
OMG did this bring back memories. Running home to watch it even writing Justine and her response was good send a stamp next time. Guess I thought I was the only fan and now I know it was costly to reply to all of us. Still would love to meet some of the regulars

Bandstand
This was a Christmas gift for a friend. Both she and her husband were on the show back when it aired in Philadelphia. She could not put the book down....she just loves it.
