Maine’s Awesome 80s: Bounty Bandstand!
It’s high school graduation time! That's gettin' me all nostalgic and going through my 1985 Coniad yearbook. So fun to see all the Augusta peeps with their mullets, big round glasses and even a few Blimp t-shirts! I’ll tell ya what though. This wicked rad video takes it to the next level.
WVII Channel 7 outta Bangor used to tape shows on Saturdays at the Bounty dance club and broadcast them on Sundays. The kids dancing on the Bounty Bandstand show were from area high schools and it was hosted by legendary local morning radio star, Mighty John Marshall.
Chem-free dance parties were all the rage around Maine in the 80’s. In Augusta, we used to shake it all night long at Rachel’s. Maybe you didn’t go to school with these exact kids, but they absolutely will remind you of people you grew up with. Bask in the glory of 80’s ‘shoulder dancing’ Maine teens cuttin’ a rug to classics from John Parr, ZZ Top, Loverboy and more! Big thanks to You Tube user, Ken Talon for putting this up.
I have already watched this over and over. It is wicked mesmerizing, bub. See anybody you know?
