Delaware County has entered the national spotlight once again, with a piece of its pop culture history featured on the latest episode of The Goldbergs, the popular ABC sitcom set in Jenkintown, writes Peg DeGrassa for the Delaware County News Network.
The “Bachelor Party” episode that aired on Dec. 5 showed Uncle Marvin Goldberg, played by Dan Fogler, planning a bachelor party for Barry Goldberg, played by Troy Gentile, with some help from Goldberg’s ragtag group of friends.
“For tonight, only one landmark matters,” Uncle Marvin told the group early in the episode. “Delaware County’s wildest dance club … Pulsations! We’re talking a 6,000-square-foot dance floor, lasers, smoke machines, giant speakers that guarantee permanent hearing loss, wall-to-wall babes, and a sentient party robot.”
The idea to use the now-defunct nightclub in Glen Mills came from executive producer Adam F. Goldberg. The show is based on Goldberg’s experiences growing up in the Philadelphia suburbs.
“Growing up, the one place everyone would go for a wild time was Pulsations,” said Goldberg. “It was the ultimate dance club of the ’80s.”
