Legendary DJ "Cousin Brucie" remembers Dick Clark

By Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) - Legendary New York City disc jockey Bruce
"Cousin Brucie" Morrow says Dick Clark was the kind of guy you'd
want as a next-door-neighbor.

He said the "American Bandstand" host who died Wednesday left a legacy that's "as alive today as it will be 50 years from now."

Morrow shared his memories Thursday on Fox 5 "Good Day New York."

He called Clark "a sweet, charming, very honest guy."

Although the two men were competitors, Morrow said they nurtured each other.

He said the number of people Clark helped build their careers "looked like the New York City telephone directory."

Clark died in Santa Monica, Calif. at age 82. He also produced and hosted game shows and the New Year's Eve festivities in Times Square.

Morrow is currently heard on SiriusXM.
