Seventeen tv show

As a pop culture/rock history goon, being able to see live tv performances from 40+ years ago is a gas for me. I always think about how old the people I know/knew were at that time. Whenever I see kids dancing to rock and roll in the late 50s, I think of Helen Kelly and Mrs. Swaine, two moms from my childhood neighborhood. How cool it must be to see yourself, your mother/father or your grandmother/father dancing in clips like THIS Iowa teen dance show from 1958.
