AMERICAN BANDSTAND — OH CAROL — – THE BEAUTIFUL — CAROLE SCALDEFERRI — AND — NEIL SEDAKA

Oh Carol — Neil Sedaka

FRIDAY IS FALLING –

There is not much one can add to the list of superlatives describing one of Bandstand’s Best beauties, the incomparable Carole — that’s Carole Scaldeferri.

She was American Bandstand’s fashionista fantasy. The boys went ballistic and the girls copied her every ensemble.

Even today, no matter where Carole is seen, she is impeccably groomed with a fashion sense that has stood the test of time. She is as up-to-date today just as she was way-ahead-of her-time back on American Bandstand.

When it came to style and beauty, Carole was the one to beat. She is a classic.

Here is a rare photo from my vast collection of kinescopes. Double and/or single click on either photo to get the picture — up close and personal. As you regular visitors know, this is a special feature in the kingdom of the Princes and Princesses of Dance and a rare experience in the vastness of the cyber-world. This kinescope is of Neil Sedaka on American Bandstand singing — you guessed it — Oh Carol to Carole Scaldeferri.

Little does it matter that he may have had someone else in mind when he wrote it, Carole Scaldeferri fits the bill.

Click the link under the photo and sing along with Sedaka….

Ciao for now….

    You are so right about Carole. She was groomed to the max every day, a stunner. I remember reading about her having a wrinkle in her outfit, and the gang sitting on it to get it out! Believe she said it was true years later when asked. Again, always remembered her gorgeous hair and eyes to match. I hear she is a wonderful, nice lady to this day and fan friendly.

  2. Hi Jean,

    Oh yes, she is loves her fans. I have spent some time with Carole and like Arlene Sullivan they are so charming.

  5. With Dick Clark dying this week, it brought memories back of my high school days (1959-1961) when every weekday I would run home to watch American Bandstand…..my favorite of all the girls was Carole Scaldeferri…..I thought she was so beautiful…..I also loved Justine and Bob…..they were cute but Carole was my favorite…..and yes, I thought that Neil Sedaka wrote the song “Oh Carol” for her because I remember he told Dick Clark he had a crush on her….and of course, my favorite artist out of that era was the Fabulous Fabian….. he was the best and for a short time took my focus off of Elvis….but of course only for a short time because there was only one KING and that was Elvis…..

    • Does anyone recall a regular on American Bandstand named Little Carole? She had long red hair. I am trying to locate a photo or something.
