When You Are Old
By William Butler Yeats
" When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;

And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars. "

And so, my Friend
this irreplaceable

And thank YOU
SO Much
for spending some of it
here with us.

Dick Clark: Cultural Giant

" We're goin hoppin
We're goin happin
Where things are poppin
The Philadelphia way
We're gonna drop in
On all the music they play
On the bandstand-"
Barry Manilow


After school,
every kid in Philadelphia
watched the Teen-Agers
dance on BANDSTAND,
broadcast from 47th & Market
in West Philly.

It was our local show
before the world discovered it
back in the early days
of Rock & Roll.

"They look like they are having fun.
I can't wait till I'm a Teen-Ager!"
Me at age 7

"But imagine how much fun
it WILL be,
when YOU get there!"

Prophetic Mom!

made the cool kids on
Band Stand
look old fashioned!

Dick Clark
was VERY important
to American & World 
Pop Music,
to our culture,

Many of our musical icons
only succeeded
because of his support.

Thanks Mr. Clark - 
' World's Oldest Teen-Ager"
