Synopsis: Remember TV bandstand shows? Then you ll love our new book! The arrival of Rock n Roll music created a previously unexplored market for advertisers: the teenager. And in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, the Sump n Else show was often the highlight of a teenager s day. A fun, new book by Bud Buschardt, with his collaborator, Sam Sauls is being released in November 2014 by Entry Way Publishing. During the TV dance craze of the mid-to-late 1960 s, Bud Buschardt was unit manager-floorman-assistant director at the Dallas studio of WFAA-TV in NorthPark Center. Now Buschardt shares his personal memories of that bygone era in a fascinating, detailed format in his new tabletop music/television history book, The Sump n Else Show. Nationally, ABC-TV s American Bandstand with Dick Clark opened up avenues for local stations to produce their own bandstand shows. Television brought to the small screen, earlier days of dancing in school gyms where sock hops were born. The Sump n Else show followed the 1964 success of WFAA-TV s Group & Chapman show, a Saturday night lip-synch show for teens and their parents that starred Dallas/Fort Worth area teenagers. Sump n Else was designed for the teen audience because fast camera movements, video switching to the beat of the music and special effects did not appeal to most adults. The legendary show began September 6, 1965 and concluded on January 26, 1968. Sump n Else had new music, dancing, fashions, contests, food, and The Little Group a group of four girls dancing on a platform off the dance floor. Host, Ron Chapman often referred to them as the stars of the show . The original group included Calleen Anderegg, Delpha Teague, Joan Prather and Kathy Forney. The book includes updates on where they are and their accomplishments. Speaking of the host, Ron Chapman later made tremendous impacts on audiences of radio stations KVIL and KLUV. This is the only book that tells the story of Ron from his beginning high school days in the entertainment business through his successes at KLIF, WFAA-TV and KVIL until his retirement from KLUV. National guest music stars like Paul Revere and the Raiders, Herman s Hermits, The Monkees, and The Righteous Brothers made appearances on the show. Local area musicians including The 13th Floor Elevators, The Five Americans, Southwest F.O.B., The Novas, Scotty McKay, Kenny & The Kasuals, Those Guys and many more were also featured guests on Sump n Else. There are pages of great old photos and lists of songs that were played on the show. The book includes details about NorthPark stores in 1965, the studio location, and other shows that were televised or taped from there. Bud lets us in on the station staff and their jokes. Sump n Else was the inspiration for a music publishing company, band booking agency and record company. Collaborator, Sam Sauls, is the driving force behind the creation of the book. He believes that this piece of television history needs to be documented because his research showed that not much information is available on local television bandstand shows. Sam and Bud both desire and hope to correct some of the misinformation now on the internet about the show. The Sump n Else Show is not only for those who remember the show and the era of television bandstands, but it is also for a curious younger generation that might have only heard about Sump n Else from their parents or grandparents, or have read about it on the internet. Although the show was based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, readers from other areas might reflect back to the television bandstand show that aired in their hometown. We look forward to music memorabilia collectors and television history fans displaying the book on their coffee table for all to enjoy, especially over the holidays.
