misc large photos of American Bandstand Regulars





The Bandstand Regulars at picnic
Left to right: Fran Hardman, Bonnie Harden, Mary Ann Cuff, Arlene Sullivan, Kenny Rossi, and Pat Molittieri


above picture is from the American Bandstand ice skating party at Drexelbrook, PA. I enlarged a segment so you could see a few of the Regulars to identify them. There's Regular Diana Benero in the outfit her mother made for her, with the hood to her vest. You can also see Regular Barb Levick and of course there's Dick Clark who hosted the show/party. This picture came to my website courtesy George Yates from a collection his dad Ed Yates had. Ed Yates was one of the great strengths of American Bandstand, being the Director of the show for many years.


Above is lovely Regular Frani Giordano. I put together the background picture from one of my softwares, and I think it adds to her lovliness.
