Lou DeSera a Bandstand Regular

Lou DeSera, a teen who appeared on American Bandstand several times a week was loved for his slicked-back, pumped up pompadour. In the late fifties, Philadelphia boys were split on how to wear their hair. South Philadelphians styled it high and shiny; North Philadelphians, inspired by TV's Peter Gunn, wore their hair short and to the side. For guys, tweed jackets, button-down shirts, and thin patterned ties were the uniform.
