While working with the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC), Clark was able to manage to take out time to work at his favorite jazz clubs. There was a buzz around the show that they had to hire another Negro. Clark was handed the responsibility of finding a person who was suitable to the band's needs. Racism had to play its part and Clark lived up for the opportunities of his race. He referred Snooky Young to the band. Clark retaliated when Snooky was not accepted by the band and almost left the band. However, both, himself and Snooky was retained in the band. As Clark states, it was the first time that he was making some serious money, enough to build a house for himself and his wife.
