Dick Summer is a story teller...(N.Y.Daily News.)
Dick Summer has Love Comes When you Least Expect It CD by Dick
Summer He's heard every day on national television commercials, and he spent
years as a radio personality in New York and Boston. He's also a poet, a pilot,
and a hypnotist.
This is a story about
Love, Lust, and Faith...lost...and then found again. It's about a woman and two
pilots, one of whom cheated on his wife. It asks some interesting questions.
For example, "Is the 'Other Woman' always a tramp?"; and "Can I still be a
decent person after I cheated on someone who trusted me?". The story is told by
one of America's most familiar radio and tv voices, Dick Summer. In fact, it
started with an actual on air "Confession" by one of the people in the story on
Dick's NBC radio program.

I have both of Dick Summer's new CDs and I recommend them. It was wonderful to
hear, again, this master story-teller weave the old magic. Those of us who, as
teens, listened to Dick's late night show back in the 60s, and who mused about
"what dreams may come" will recognize, with a smile, the velvet voice and the
hypnotic style that is still as seductive as it ever was.
matter is more contemporary than I had hoped, but that may prove to be more
appealing to many for whom listening to Summer is a new experience.
me, it was just a treat to be, once again, in the company of an old friend, now
that the brave new world is upon us.

While playing this CD, I
was immediately transported back to those late nights in high school, when we
all listened to Dick Summer's quiet, powerful tales on our radios. The
production values and storytelling skills are unmatched... his impeccable
timing and word choice--along with those mesmerizing cadences, verbal filigrees
and poetic turns of phrase--provide honeyed balm for yearning souls.
weaves an audio spell as well, if not better, than anyone who's ever purred
into a microphone. As a pilot, I was delighted by the way he's continued, and
extended, the literary tradition of authors like Antoine de Saint-Exupery and
Richard Bach. This is honorable work, giving audiences a feel for the sky's
loneliness/joy/drama... plus it's such a rare pleasure to *listen to* a story
which was specifically DESIGNED to be listened to - and created by a consummate
practitioner of the art.
