American Dreams television Show Revives American Bandstand

American Bandstand may not exist anymore but watching this really super realistic and uplifting television series will certaintly help revive the wonderful days of American Bandstand in the 60s. I really love this unique and greatly done television series which frist aired in 2002 on NBC 4 on Sunday's at 8 p.m. I wish I could found out about this show that year but I didn't instead I discovered in it in 2011 online on Youtube while I was watching some real vintage videos of Ameican Bandstand because in 2010 I took a college course called the history of Rock n' Roll and that's were I learned about American Bandstand, we learned a little bit so i wanted to learn more about this amazingand historical T.V. show that not only changed te lives of many teenagers who were growing upi the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s but it also made music history n a sigificant profound way. Eventhough I wasn't still alive at the time American Bandstand ruled the music world, It still makes me feel great that such a show existed.

The television show American Dreams takes place from 1963 to 1969 centering on Meg Pryor, her friend Roxanne Bojarski and Meg's family living and experiencing through the ups and downs that happened in the 60s, such a the civil rights movement that was in the early 60s and the assasination of the U.S. President John F. Kennedy in 1963. Through all this Meg Pryor's ultimate dream is to be on American bandstand. Luckily she and her friend Roxanne are able to be on America Bandstand as dancer regulars which in turn meg faces many problems and challenges while being on the show.

I encourage everyone to watch this super uplifting show that I uploaded on Youtube. So I have uploaded up to season 1 episode 22, I still need to upload the rest of the episodes.Sadly the show got cancelled in 2005 so it only ran for three seasons. The show won two Emmy Awards.

Watching American Dreams really let me see clearly and learn more about how being on American Bandstand really was.
