Anchorage Varsity Show eBook


From 1959 to 1971, The Varsity Show was seen live on KTVA channel 11.


The show was Anchorage's answer to the American Bandstand TV show, and it featured local teens dancing on TV to the latest hit songs of the day.


But that's not the whole story.


Anchorage high school students earned scholarships by becoming staff interns on the show.



Featuring a Foreword

by Ron Moore
