        abunda_amazon_reviews 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.;;Reviewed in the United States on November 13, 2016;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Arlene Sullivan did a fantastic job of compiling pictures and memories from a memorable ...;;pink_icicle;;;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!;;Reviewed in the United States on April 9, 2017;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;A piece of Philly history!
