Giving us Rock and Roll in Philly

Spinning records five days a week

You helped to usher in a youth culture

Revolutionizing the music industry

Desegregating it for the racist bigots

Knowing that Music is truly colorblind

Then it was the Wild Surf Scene out west

Giving us a whole new beat to dance to

Through it all you rocked out forever young

Through the years on  American Bandstand
