"Bandstand" from WFIL in Philly with Bob Horn premiered in 1952. Alan Freed's "The Big Beat" also premiered in NYC in 1957. American Bandstand's first network show premeiered also in 1957, so who had the idea first?
"During (P.J.) Probyís visit, Good produced the singerís first single, Hold Me, for the Decca label." Would've been more accurate to say: "During Probyís visit, Good produced the singerís first single for the Decca label, Hold Me."
P.J. had recorded several singles for a couple of U.S. labels as early as 1961, including Liberty Records, prior to arriving in England in 1964. Proby traveled to London in 1964 and was introduced to Jack Good by Sharon Sheeley and Jackie DeShannon.
