“The Dave Astor Show”

Picture 16 of 18

“ 'The Dave Astor Show' was our local 'American Bandstand.' It taught us how to dance, dress and act by example. Growing up, we need role models and Dave's show gave us many. He sought out talented, intelligent young people to showcase. Also, it’s where I learned the great art of lip syncing. His show was our Saturday treat!” — Ruth Conner Bastarache
