1959: 63: I watched Dance Party faithfully and became a great fan of Lynn Facciola and Frank Pisa, two of the popular San Francisco show’s biggest stars. Every weekday afternoon the camera followed all their moves, the ones I NEVER could get right.
(Do you remember the Seinfeld episode where Elaine displays her lack of rhythm and athleticism? That’s me, ok.)
Yes, I was a groupie.
Here’s a photo of Frank Pisa with a lovely portrait of Lynn Facciola in the background.
Today I received an e-note from Manny Interiano who told me:
“Frank Pisa’s wife Jo sent me a copy of your article [click here] about my buddy Frank Pisa and the Dance Party. I really enjoyed it, but then again it is always good to hear from someone who is from the same time and space.
I hope that you visit our web site and relive some of your memories. I hope that you write me; I would love to share memories with you.”
If you enjoyed Dick Stewart’s KPIX “Dance Party” tv show as much as I did– email Manny here .
