    Didn’t they already did a Dick Clark tribute already at the primetime emmys a few years ago? How come the daytime emmys has to recycle what the primetime emmys already did before?


  2. Frieda Ashworth Wilt says:

    Will American Bandstand regular Justine Carrillo be included with the Dick Clark tribute, since she lives in the Las Vegas area?

    Hey David:
    How are you doing? I haven’t heard from you in a long, long time. I liked getting your AB letters and updates.
    I think the last time I saw you was at the 50th anniv.
    I found this site and I am having so many emotions going through all the pages.
    Please e-mail me and I can update you with my new address.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Best wishes and love,
