Riassunto: There was a small sliver of time between Be-Bop and Hip-Hop, when a new generation of teenagers created rock 'n' roll. Clay Cole was one of those teenagers he was the host of his own Saturday night, pop music television show.
Clay Cole's SH-BOOM! is the pop culture chronicle of that exciting time, 1953-1968, when teenagers created their own music, from swing bands and pop to rhythm and blues, cover records, a cappella, rockabilly, folk-rock, and girl groups; from the British Invasion to the creation of the American Boy Band. He was first to introduce Chubby Checker performing the "Twist;" the first to present the Rolling Stones, Tony Orlando, Dionne Warwick, Neil Diamond, Bobby Vinton, the Rascals, Ronettes, Four Seasons, Dion, and dozens more; the first to introduce music video clips, discotheque, go-go girls and young unknown standup comedians Richard Pryor, George Carlin, and Fannie Flagg to a teenage television audience.
L'autore: Clay Cole is one of live television's true pioneers, beginning in 1953 at age 15, as host and producer of his own Saturday night teenage music show. By the time he was 21, he was the wildly-popular singing-dancing star of New York's top-rated Clay Cole Show from 1959 to 1968.
Clay has written and produced over 3500 broadcast television shows, winning two Emmy Awards, and induction into the NYPD Honor Legion, his proudest moment.
After forty-four years as a New Yorker, Clay now lives on a remote island in North Carolina, where the Cape Fear River flows into the Atlantic, "a quaint little drinking village with a fishing problem."
