Arlene Sullivan, a South Philadelphia native, was one of the most celebrated Regulars on American Bandstand from 1956 to 1960. Originally, Arlene went to the daily show to gain her mother’s attention and approval. Fans would frequently spot her on television as she knew precisely where the cameras were. Her frequent dance partner was Kenny Rossi, who many thought was her brother because of their resemblance to each other.

After graduating from John Bartram High School, Arlene worked in Philadelphia for Dunn & Bradstreet for four years. She also worked in the Warwick Hotel’s sales office. When Atlantic City legalized gambling, she enrolled in a Dealers’ School and became a blackjack dealer. She remained in the casino business for 31 years.

Over the 55 years since she appeared on American Bandstand, Arlene has been featured in many books, as well as television, radio and internet interviews. Her friendships with many stars include Bobby Rydell, Frankie Avalon, Fabian, Dion, and Charlie Gracie. Throughout the years, Arlene attended all Dick Clark’s Reunions and Specials. She also appeared on the Oprah Show along with some other Regulars to surprise Dick Clark.

Jewish Perspectives on the News and Politics with Burt Siegel

This program will not hold back on what the host and his guests believe is wrong with an American society in which anti-Jewish sentiments as well as racism have become too often tolerated, where cooperation across party lines is treated as treachery, where immigrants and refugees are seen as a threat to the “American Way of Life” and the gap between the ultra wealthy and the average American is ever widening. While it will reflect the values of Judaism and the Democratic party all are welcomed to share their thoughts regarding how we can achieve the dream of what our nation aspires to be about.
