The Dave Astor Show aired weekly from 1956 to 1971, largely on WCSH, Portland's NBC affiliate. Originally titled "For Teenagers Only," Astor's program was first broadcast on WGAN (now WGME). It moved to WCSH by 1963.
Local area high school students were chosen each week to appear on The Dave Astor Show as guests. Many sang, danced or played musical instruments as part of the program.
