"The Dave Astor Show," Maine's version of "American Bandstand," launched in 1956 and ran for 16 years. Dave Astor said his show was for teenagers only because he believed everyone was a teenager and they controlled the family television set. The weekly show featured a core group of students who performed hit songs. To participate, students had to maintain good grades and behavior. #daveastor #jewishmaine #jewsinmaine #jewishhistory
