Final Note

Remembering Dick Clark

Kai Ryssdal Apr 18, 2012

This final note today. Dick Clark has passed away. He was 82.

Depending on how old you are, you’ve probably got different memories of him. “American Bandstand.” “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.” Dick Clark Productions did the Golden Globes and The American Music Awards.

For me, he’ll always be the guy who hosted “The $20,000 Pyramid,” which I got to watch when I was home sick from school.
