L'American Bandstand est probablement le show tv qui american-bandstand-by-cdnpicappdotcomsera la plus représentatif des goûts musicaux des teenagers de la seconde moitier des années 1950's et du début des 1960's.

En effet, on voit défiler sur le plateau de l'emission quelques unes des stars de l'époque du rockn'roll, doo wop, Teen rock et rhythm and blues.

Le show filmé au départ dans les studios de la tv WFDIL de Philadelphie, commence en 1952 et se termine en 1989.  A l'origine l'idée vient d'une émission de radio de WPEN The 950 Club présenté par Joe Grady et Ed Hurst. La première emission sera réalisé le 7 Octobre 1952 dans le Studio B, le producteur original est Tony Mammarella avec Ed Yates comme metteur en scène. Déja, on peut noter un public de Teenagers qui dansent durant l'émission, mais l'étroitesse du studio limite leur nombre.

A la fin de l'été 1957, l'emission change de grille de programation en passant à 15 h 30, et à partir du 5 Aout 1957 elle devient un programme national et Dick Clark le présentateur devient aussi producteur du programme. On peut noter que l'emission sera briévement retransmise en couleur en 1958, lorsque WFIL-TV expérimente cette nouvelle technologie On peut noter qen Février 1964 que le show quitte Philadelphie pour les studios d' ABC Television à Los Angeles AB.danny.juniors .
