#tbt Watch Episodes of ‘Bounty Bandstand’ From The 80’s [VIDEO]
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.
I think it goes without saying that 2020 has not been what anyone expected, to be blunt, it's been terrible. So on this #ThrowbackThursday, why not hop in the time machine and head waay back to the days of feathered hair, and some seriously sweet dance moves.
