SUNDAY SALUTE –
I am constantly receiving questions with regard to American Bandstand Regular, Frani Giordano.
To answer one of those questions….
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, but that said, I believe — if not the most beautiful — Frani Giordano was one of the most beautiful young girls to have danced on American Bandstand in the Philadelphia years. She was also one of the most charismatic.
Respect and trust are key components and the prime ingredients in healthy relationships and our own self-worth. Respect for privacy is something I hold sacred.
Here is rare photo from my private collection and accordingly copyrighted. This is from a series of the Pony Contest after party. Frani Giordano and Mike Balara won first prize. Joyce Shafer and Norman Kerr, and Carmen Jimenez and Frankie Vacca won second and third, respectively.
The face of Frani for all of her fans always brings a smile. It’s amazing how someone can make others happy without even trying. She was beautiful in the American Bandstand Philadelphia years of yesterday. She is beautiful today.
Ciao for now….
