    THIS depresses me. Glad I made a point to check in with him this New Years Eve.


    I was fortunate to have Dick on my radio show just before his stroke.  I’ve always looked up to him as a broadcaster and never missed his Rockin’ New Year’s Eve show.  One year, my band was playing and I insisted on having a tv pointed to the stage so I could watch Dick during the countdown.  Dick Clark, a very good man.

    Ryan Seacrest couldn’t hold Dick Clark’s microphone.  If he didn’t have GQ looks, he’d be stuffing Oreos somewhere.
