After fifteen years, Dave Astor aired his final episode of The Dave Astor Show in June 1971. Originally called "For Teenagers Only," the show was an American-Bandstand type program which aired locally each week on Saturday afternoons.
Highlights of the final episode included the presentation of a plaque to Dave Astor and performances by past guests. Here, former series regular Don Brown reprised his pantomime of "The Battle of New Orleans."
