Cassie's Bucket List #20
Dick Clark passed away while the previous storyline was going on, so this is my belated little tribute to him. I wasn't much into Bandstand, but I did watch some of the New Year's Rockin' Eves (even though it ended just before New Years Central Time) and quite a few $25,000 Pyramids.
I'll have to think of something Beastie Boys-ish later for the loss of Adam "MCA" Yauch, a death that more hits home for me. The Beasties were one of my favorite groups growing up, and I bought almost all of their albums.
TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - "CASSIE'S BUCKET LIST #20 - Appear on a classic game
show, preferably with celebrities." [1983; the late Dick
Clark is hosting The $25,000 Pyramid – and CW has made
it to the final round] (DC) "Good luck, you're playing for
Ten Thousand Dollars. Here's your first subject. Ready?
Go!" [First subject to be guessed is "Things at a Cocktail
Party"] (Celebrity – Nipsy Russell? Bill Cosby? We can't
quite tell) "Okay… Uh… Open Bar… Hors d'oeuvers…
Uh… Lounge music, a toast…" (CW, in appropriate early
80's getup) "Uh, things at a wedding reception! Things you
find at a dinner function!..." [RIP Dick Clark]
