"Age of Aquarius"           
Storyline:  When the Age of Aquarius was part of what we often think of as the “hippie generation” did we really understand what this was all about?   Astrologers maintain that an astrological age is about the earth's slow precessional rotation and lasts for 2,150 years, on average.  In our culture, the Age of Aquarius refers to the advent of the New Age; the movement we saw in the 1960s and 1970s. Let’s look back to the sounds of some great music of the time.

Dick Clark's "AMERICAN BANDSTAND" began as a local program on WFIL-TV (now WPVI), Channel 6 in Philadelphia on October 7, 1952. Then it was hosted by Bob Horn and was called Bob Horn's Bandstand. On July 9 of 1956 the show got a new host, a clean-cut 26 year old named Dick Clark. When ABC picked the show up, it was renamed American Bandstand, airing it's first national show on August 5, 1957. The show was moved to Los Angeles in 1964. From 1963 to 1987 Bandstand was on only once a week, on Saturday.   American Bandstand brought rock 'n' roll music into millions of households. It showed Americans how to do the latest dance steps. Dick Clark, "America's Oldest Teenager" hosted the series for most of its run.   If you weren’t a “bandstand regular,” now’s the time to “go back” and pretend you are!   Program text by: Jeanie Baker

"THE TONIGHT SHOW" starring Johnny Carson was a talk show which aired from 1962-1992, originally airing late-night from New York City until May 1972 when the show moved permanently to Burbank, CA.  Carson’s sidekick, Ed McMahon held the same role in Carson’s “Who Do You Trust?” for five years before the 30-year run on the Tonight Show.   Now let’s sit back and enjoy a little spoof on the show that most of you probably watched once or twice in your lifetime.

 "ANNUAL HEMET HOEDOWN " (Not your average hoedown)
Storyline:
Back in the days of cowboys, there was a gentleman named Matt Dillon who was the law in Dodge City, KS.  His lady friend, Miss Kitty, was usually by his side when in the Longbranch Saloon. His sidekick, Festus, was always giving him heads-up when any bad dudes were in town.
 
One dude that was big and looked kind of mean to Festus was an out-of-town visitor by the name of Hoss Cartwright.  Hoss, from another western city, Virginia City, NV, was just visiting from his family’s ranch, the Ponderosa.
 
Let’s take a look back at those Western days and see how this well-known Cartwright clan came about visiting with Marshall Dillon.  The Cartwright’s apparently love music of all kinds, and are enamored by all the talent found in Dodge City. 
 
We don’t think there will be any shoot-outs, as this is a family here to party!

"Spring is in the Air" (A Love Story)
Storyline: 
 Once upon a time in the Land of Nod, in a place far away, there were two young teenagers, a stunningly beautiful girl by the name of Bunny and a young athletic boy named Frank.   They met in grade school and continued their friendship through high school, when love set in.  They talked of marriage and how many children they would have one day.  As fate would have it, war broke out and Frank, being a patriotic young man, quickly volunteered.  They promised each other they would wait until the war was over before engaging in marriage.   Did they stay true to each other and have the happy ending they dreamed of as teens, or would war and distance tear them apart?   Do they live happily ever after?
