Hi: I have done a lot of research on line, inquired at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, and STILL can't find this.... Does anyone know if DVDs of the original American Bandstand exist and/or if there is a plan to release them? I'm looking for full broadcasts, not clips of certain performers, etc. I'm guessing Dick Clark owns them and is not releasing them, for whatever reason. Perhaps, they'll be released at 'some later point in time'? Or, perhaps, he'll bequeath the rights to someone/company? Anyone know anything about this? Or do you even care? I thought AB was one of the best shows on TV, for introducing new talent, showcasing a lot of different talent, introducing music, dance moves, and of course, was the "original"...."Dancing with the NON stars" or "So you think you can dance?". I know I'm showing my age when I want to re-watch a lot of these. But, hey, it was a special time in TV and rock n roll history. Thanks!
