    Is there anyway to obtain archival T.V. Broadcasts from abc's American Bandstand?

    My father's band "The Chancellors" was in two episodes in Season 1: Ep.147 and Ep.180?

    He is 80 years old and I would love to see the look on his face if he could see himself in 1958 on American Bandstand.

    Ep. 147 Aired 2/6/1958

    Ep. 180 Aired 3/25/1958

    I know this might be impossible, but I have to try.

    Thank you for any advice,

    David Girvan

    Does anyone know how I can get this episode?


    American Bandstand - Season 18, Episode 32 - Johnny Bristol / The Allens: --Johnny Bristol - "Leave My World" --The Allens - "A Bird in the Hand"


    The film was lost through years past and we tried getting the film from Dick Clark Production however, we were told it was lost through a miss calculation of video's thrown out of their vault by mistake. We are hoping someone out there might have a copy of it or the possibility of the guest star Johnny Bristol may have a copy. Email me at garybdj@aol.com if there is that possibility.

    trying to find film footage of The Grass Roots on American Bandstand. I know they appeared over 20 times. Found the episode list on tv.com but wont load any episode. Any help would be great!
