tk for PPE has left a new comment on your post "Dick Clark Dies At 82":
"In the late 1940's the parents of Dick Clark's girlfriend, Babrara Mallery, moved to Salisbury from Syracuse, NY. She attended Salisbury State College for a couple of years before transferring to another college. Clark was working at WFIL in Philadelphia at the time and made frequent trips to Salisbury to visit Barbara. As referenced in the book American Bandstand "...which necessitated what Clark described as seventeen-hour 'sheer suicide' motor trips in his heaterless '34 Ford convertible in the dead of winter." They married in 1952; divorced in 1961.
Dick Clark made a guest appearance as MC at a fund raising teen record hop at the Salisbury armory along with WBOC's George Hack (who hosted a weekly live TV dance show on Saturday afternoons). Clark also participated in Salisbury's Christmas parade one year."
