NBC Bandstand was an easy old time big band radio-televison music show simulcast weekday mornings in the 1950's with pop tunes, big band favorites and simple banter with host Bert Parks and announcer Bill Wendell from NBC 30 Rock in New York City. Parks frequently spoke with audience members...where they were from, enjoying visit to New York City etc. Your blog editor was interviewed by Parks on this program. I was a teenaged radio 'wannabee', visiting from Philadelphia. Studio audience participation was part of the show.
