Anthony (Tony) Mammarella (September 2, 1924 - November 29, 1977) was the first producer and second host of American Bandstand.
In 1958, as a way of increasing his financial portfolio, he, along with Dick Clark and Bernie Binnick started Swan Records, with the first signed artist being "Dickie Doo and the Don'ts". The label would later be notable for being the first American record label for The Beatles.
Mammarella succumbed to metastatic lung cancer on November 29, 1977.
The Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia  posthumously inducted Mammarella into their Hall of Fame in 2009.
