On August 2, 1924, Winston Joseph Deane was born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. His childhood nickname was Buddy. Deane began his broadcasting career at KLXR in Little Rock, Arkansas. In 1950, he moved to Baltimore to WITH. He was one of the first to showcase rock and roll music on a continual basis.From 1957-1965, Deane was chosen as host of WJZ-TV, Baltimore's "The Buddy Deane Show." "The Buddy Deane Show" became of the most popular local shows in the United States. (Dick Clark's "American Bandstand" was patterned after "The Buddy Deane Show.." The show was broadcast two hours a day, six days a week. It featured local teenagers dancing to live bands, most of whom went on to become professional groups.

John Waters, loosely based "The Corny Collins' Show" in his movie, "Hairspray" on Deane's show. Waters even gave Deane a small roll in his film. The musical "Hairspray" went on to sweep the 57th Annual Tony Awards (eight wins) in 2003, the year Deane died.Just like in the "Hairspray" film, the teenagers on "The Committee" refused to allow African-American teenagers to be able to dance on the show on a regular basis.
