Lew Klein blazed a trail for countless individuals throughout his storied career. As a broadcaster, Lew created programming such as Captain Noah, Sally Starr, and of course, American Bandstand. Beyond his experience in television production, Lew and his wife, Janet, are selfless philanthropists, giving both their time and monetary means to organizations such as the Police Athletic League, the Pennsylvania Historical Society, and Temple University, where Lew has been a professor for over 60 years.
Over the course of eight weeks, I sat down with countless individuals whose lives were touched by Klein in some way, whether he was their teacher, mentor, or friend. Their heartfelt testimonial can be seen above.
