I loved Jack Cafferty's tribute to Dick Clark. [View all]

On CNN just now Candy Crowley reporting the passing of Dick Clark interviewed Anderson Cooper and others. The most moving was Jack Cafferty and I hope CNN repeats it later tonight.

Cafferty told of how important it was for black artists to appear on American Bandstand. In the viscously racist 1950s their music was never played by mainstream DJs. Never.
