Believe it or not, there were some cities that passed on American Bandstand. For 25 years, two of those stations are along I-45 (WFAA-8 in Dallas & KTRK-13 in Houston). I was always curious about the show growing up & finally saw it in San Antonio back in 1981. Was impressed over their annual dance contest.
But the long feud finally ended for Houston on Sept. 1, 1984. It would've been nice to see some of the performers I missed out on during that time. Missed Scott Baio by 50 weeks.
But I also liked watching the anniversary shos they had from time to time.
