Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Jimmy Clanton

Recording artist Jimmy Clanton performed on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand. And he was with Clark’s Caravan of Stars national tour Nov. 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas. That Friday evening show had to be canceled after President John Kennedy was assassinated that afternoon. He toured with Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, Ray Charles, Chuck Berry, and many others. He wrote and recorded his biggest hit, which sold over a million copies. His autobiography is titled “Just a Dream.” I’m sure you remember some of his many hits.
