  • American Bandstand - Local musical show first aired on  WFIL-TV (now WPVI), Channel 6 in Philadelphia on October 7, 1952. Originally hosted by  Bob Horn (called Bob Horn's Bandstand), the show changed hosts on July 9 of 1956 with 26 year old named Dick Clark. When ABC picked the show up, it was renamed American Bandstand, airing it's first national show on August 5, 1957. The show moved to Los Angeles in 1964 and ran until 1987 (David Hirsh later hosted the show on the USA Network in 1989). The NBC series AMERICAN DREAM that aired in the fall of 2002, used clips of the old American Bandstand program as part of their plotline as a young Philadelphia teenage girl aspires to be one of the dancers on the program.
