Join me on Tuesday July 4th for the premiere of the first episode of Dancing On Bandstand: An American Dreams Podcast as I discuss S1E1: The Pilot which premiered on September 29, 2002. We are introduced to the Pryor family husband and wife Jack and Helen Pryor and their four children J.J., Meg, Patty and Will. We also see the inner workings and behind the scenes of America's Favorite Dance Show American Bandstand as Meg and her friend Roxanne try out to be dancers on the show, J.J struggles with his desire to continue to play high school football 🏈 asking himself who is he really playing for him or his Dad?, Patty prepares for her spelling bee 🐝 competition driving everyone crazy with her constant spelling, and Will tries to be just like his big brother while suffering from the debilitating Polio virus and Jack and Helen cope and try to move forward from a miscarriage. Suddenly all their problems seem less important and fall by the wayside when they hear of JFK's assassination. Hearts are breaking all over with this sad news and tears are shed as they come to terms with this unexpected upheaval that has turned their world 🌎 and life as they know it upside down.
