"It's got a good beat and you can dance to it." If you were a teen in the 1950s, then you remember these words from Dick Clark's American Bandstand. It had us teenyboppers glued to the black and white television screen. We shamelessly danced with the refrigerator, pretending it was one of the cool members of the show. Clark would often interview the teenagers about their opinions of the songs being played in a segment called "Rate-a-Record". And if it rated a high mark, that meant you could dance to it...even with the fridge as your partner.
This rare original 1950s DICK CLARK - AMERICAN BANDSTAND set of tie clasp and cufflinks is still unused in the original box. The gold-tone metal teenagers dancing around the Bandstand logo are die-cut figurals.
The cufflinks measure 1 inch by 1 inch. The tie clasp is 1 3/4 inches across by 1 inch high. This is old warehouse stock in unused excellent condition. The set comes in its original black cardboard box. This is a great early rock 'n roll, early television piece of nostalgia. An absolute must to wear to your next important Board meeting.
P.S. My refrigerator went on to appear on 'Dancing With the Stars'.
