Esterman Recalls his Time on American Bandstand in the 80’s

Mike Esterman, the CEO of celebrity booking agency Esterman.com based in the Washington, DC area, which specializes in appearance placements of music artists, TV and film celebrities, and magazine models is mourning the loss of TV legend Dick Clark and recalling his times in the early 80’s dancing on American Bandstand.

The original "American Bandstand" was one of network TV's longest-running series as part of ABC's daytime lineup from 1957 to 1987 and made Dick Clark the hero of teenagers for over four decades. The show's status as an American cultural institution was solidified when Clark donated Bandstand's original podium and backdrop to the Smithsonian Institution. Esterman recalls being a part of that history and the kindness of the host with the toothpaste smile and the smoothest delivery:

“Dick Clark encouraged me to boldly step into the world of entertainment,” says Esterman. “He was truly one of the most supportive and most honorable men in show business.”

Esterman says Clark once told him “I don’t make culture. I sell it.” Mike Esterman himself now “sells culture” as a celebrity agent and says a day doesn’t go by that he doesn’t think of Clark and his encouragement to enter showbiz. Mike Esterman is available to discuss his memories of Bandstand and his friend Dick Clark. He can be contacted via his website http://www.esterman.com.
