Watch ‘Bounty Bandstand’ Featuring Lee Academy From 1984 [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.
The episode from 1984 features students from Lee Academy, and let me tell you, the fashions of the day alone are worth watching this video. Besides, you just may know someone! In fact, at about the 2 minute mark, there is a guy who looks exactly like Nite Show host, Dan Cashman, although he would have been too young to be there, we did a double take when we saw it!
We have to shout out YouTube user Ken Talon for uploading this gem yesterday.
Check out the totally bitchin’ 80’s tunes from Autograph, John Parr, Chaka Khan, Prince, Kiss, Madonna, John Fogerty and Teena Marie
