Subscribe to WBZN Old Town Maine on

Now THIS is taking it old school!

Where Hollywood Slots now stands in Bangor, used to be the home of the iconic nightclub, The Bounty Tavern, which was part of the Holiday Inn and place where I was a DJ for a time back in the late 90’s

On WVII Channel 7, they used to run a program called Bounty Bandstand, where local area high school teens would dance to the Top 40 hits of the day. It was hosted by radio personality “Mighty John” of Z-62 fame.

The episode from 1985 features students from Orono High School and let me tell you, the fashions of the day alone are worth watching this video. Besides, you just may now someone!

Check out the totally bitchin’ 80’s tunes from John Parr, Teena Marie, ZZ Top, Kiss, The Pointer Sisters, Ratt, Cyndi Lauper, Loverboy and Mick Jagger.
