"Where the Action Is" was a music variety show which aired on ABC network each weekday afternoon from 28 June 1965 though 31 March 1967.

This series was the brainchild of Dick Clark of "American Bandstand" fame. The show's theme song, "Action" became a big hit single for Freddy "Boom Boom" Cannon, peaking on the pop charts at #13 in September 1965. Most of the telecasts, all of which were produced in black-and-white, were taped at various locales in Southern California.

The group "Paul Revere & the Raiders" were seen on the biggest majority of the shows. Other artists that appeared more than one time included a virtual who's who of the 1960's pop generation. Some of these artists included The Animals, Aretha Franklin, The Association, Billy Joe Royal, Bobby Freeman, Bobby Goldsboro, Bobby Rydell, Bobby Vee, Brian Hyland, The Byrds, Chad & Jeremy, Cher, The Crystals, Dick & Dee Dee, Dee Dee Sharp, Dionne Warwick, Jackie DeShannon, Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons, Freddie & The Dreamers, Herman’s Hermits, Jackie Wilson, James Brown & his Famous Flames, Jimmy Clanton, Jr. Walker & The All Stars, The Kinks, The Mama’s & The Papa’s, Peter & Gordon, The Righteous Brothers, The Shangri-Las, Stevie Wonder...
