He was 82 years old.

Clark, who was born in Mount Vernon, NY, on November 30th, 1929, caught his first career fire as a disc jockey at WFIL radio in Philadelphia in 1952 and hosted a program called Bandstand, which was the beginning of a program which eventually moved to local, and then national televison as American Bandstand.

Records were also “rated” and Clark would also host right from the audience and get comments from folks there as well about the acts on the show.
