With 37 continuous years on the air, this was the longest-running weekly popular music showcase TV program in the world. The BBC's Top of the Pops (1964) broke that record in 2001, when it entered its 38th year on air. See more »

For three decades,Dick Clark brought you the best in entertainment.
From 1957 until 1989,this show was a Saturday afternoon staple for the teenage set.
That show was American BANDSTAND. It ran for 37 years on ABC-TV. For the three decades that it ran on the ABC network,it went on to become the third longest-running musical variety show of all time. During the last nine seasons of the show(1980-1989)the show saw a decline to some heavy competition,but due to the loyal support of the viewers,the show survived inspite to some newer viewers and a whole new generation.
It's easy to understand why it lasted three decades and was one of the top shows among the teenage set.It also paved the way for the next generation and the beginning of the "MTV" status that was to follow. Dick Clark was always the excellent and cordial host,who held his own,and remain so until the final episode of the series in 1989. Thank you,Dick Clark for making this possible.
