Hullabaloo, Shivaree, American Bandstand...TV Pop Shows of the 1960s

As a fan of '60s pop music I'm finding these shows or clips of them on youtube and was wondering if anyone here has memories of them to share. American Bandstand is disappointing. If you didn't like pop music, why go to these shows? Maybe they should have auditioned a few people to see if they could dance before they broadcast them on national TV, with their wooden dancing and miserable faces and the whole show seems stiff and totally unspontaneous. But a lot of the shows seem like good fun and I love the dancers, especially. would be great to hear about local TV pop shows. I believe there were a lot of local ones too.
