American Bandstand secret

[ Edited ]

Apparently many of the young people on the show were gay.   Clark knew and was afraid if the viewers knew they would change the dial.  Arlene (the Arlene & Kenny couple) is gay, for instance. Justine and Bob were my favorite couple.

It is so sad that people had to hide what they are, even sadder that there are some people today who want to go back to that time.

there are often a number of people that say they prefer "the old days" because times were much "simpler" back then.
