Baby Boomers TV Generation

FILE - In a June 30, 1958, file photo, Dick Clark, at podium at upper left, is surrounded by teen-age fans on his nationally televised dance show "American Bandstand" in Philadelphia, Pa. TV was key to the world baby boomers were born into: a newly modernized world whose every problem (with the possible exception of the Cold War) seemed to promise an available solution. Polio would be cured! Man would go into space! Even African-Americans, oppressed for so long, had new reason for hope. TV chronicled this bracing wave of wonder and potential, and built upon it as an essential part of what distinguished boomers: They were pampered and privileged and ushered toward a sure-to-be-glorious future.
