Just some thoughts:
“Bandstand, I wouldn’t miss it for free Scrambler rides and all the cotton candy I could eat at the country fair.” Quote–Lewis Grizzard
“Where is Philadelphia, anyway?” he quipped one afternoon as we watched the kids on Bandstand do the Hop to Danny and the Junior’s “At the Hop.” “Pennsylvania,” I told him. “How far is that?” “Thousands of miles.” “Wish I could go.” “To see Bandstand?” “See it up close.” “Wish we lived in Philadelphia.” “We’d go on Bandstand every day, wouldn’t we?”
Quote of a conversation between teenagers Lewis Grizzard and his boyhood friend Danny Thompson.
What Lewis and Danny were wishing for is what many teenagers of the time, late 1950s’ wished.
