    Who created American Bandstand

    Watching  a special on Dick Clark, it was said that he "joined" Bandstand in the mid 50's, so who created it?  I always thought that he was the creator.

    From my reading Bob Horn based it off a radio show in 52. Lee Stewart hosted with him and owned the station. Horn was fired in 56 and Dick Clark took over soon after and he was host and producer.

      Thanks Jack, growing up and watching Bandstand, I always thought it was Dick Clark from the beginning.
