    • TRIVIA (1)

      • There were two misidentified songs in the closed captioning:

        Don Gardner & DeeDee Ford's song I Need Your Loving was shown on screen as Ray Charles' Hit The Road Jack.
        The Gentry's Keep On Dancin' was listed as Be True To Your School by The Beach Boys. Note that Dick Clark was seen and heard in an American Bandstand clip as back-introducing The Gentry's song about five minutes before the song was heard. This episode appears to be March/April 1964 probably before Easter. Keep On Dancin' was not even released nationally until over one year later peaking in Sept 1965.
