April 18: "America's Oldest Teenager" dies
As the host of the popular "American Bandstand," Clark shaped American tastes in music trends, and with a fresh-scrubbed, boy-next-door persona, he introduced the world to likes of Buddy Holly and James Brown. Clark, who died of a heart attack at the age of 82 while at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, Calif., for an outpatient procedure, also owned New Year's Eve for four decades, hosting his annual telecast from Times Square.
