Dick Clark Likes Talking to Kids

October 23, 1997

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Ageless Dick Clark feels right at home talking to youngsters.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer who hosted ``American Bandstand″ for decades is now interviewing kids on a new $15 video release ``Kidstuff! With Dick Clark.″

An example of a Clark ``Kidstuff!″ joke: ``Why’d the bubble gum cross the road? Because it was stuck to the chicken’s foot.″

Clark’s joke cracks up the 5-year-olds on the 30-minute video.

``You never knew where the conversations were going to go. And they all got off on the chicken stories,″ Clark said.

``I just dealt with them like I dealt with teen-agers all my life and found out you get the same response,″ he said.
