His career had a beat, and you could dance to it.... 

Broadcast legend Dick Clark is gone. Truly the passing of an era:

'America's oldest teen' Dick Clark dies

He was one of the people who inspired me to go into radio. I loved his friendly and natural style of broadcasting at a time when gimmicky personas were all the rage. He was attractive but never upstaged the guest or performer. He seemed to truly enjoy his job. I watched a fair amount of "American Bandstand" when I was a little kid, and I never pretended to be the music act; I pretended to be HIM. He set the standard. I will miss him.
