Dick Summer Connection

I’m sitting here in my big, manly, black leather poppa chair in my living room, recording today’s podcast …and it’s so comfortable.  Not at all like the hard chairs and harsh fluorescent lights I remember from when I was doing the all night shows at WBZ and WNEW and WNBC. There were good things and bad things about being on the air all night. One of the bad things was there weren’t many people listening, but one of the good things was that the people who were listening were really listening. It wasn’t just some kind of background noise like daytime radio tends to be. And I remember that I had my own way of dealing with problems in those days. When the little voice in my head said, “You’re going to regret saying this in the morning,” I always said it anyway. Because I figured nobody could give me a hard time in the morning if I just slept late the next day. I felt that was one way to be a  problem solver. No regrets.
