“Thank you, this is a treasure”
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.
Yes, The Royal Coachman himself, Ron Moore, provided the foreword for this historic Anchorage broadcasting e-book.
The “Dick Clark of Alaska” Ron was in front of the camera on The Varsity Show. He was also behind the microphone on The Coke Show which you can actually hear and read about right here on Anchorage Memories.com
When you download your free copy of this fun Anchorage Varsity Show eBook, you'll get to see how much Ron enjoyed his time on our local teen TV dance show.
