The LOVIN TOUCH
stories have inspired highly romantic evenings for hundreds of thousands of
listeners and readers, over quite a few years. They were first told on Dick
Summer's late night radio program in New York and Boston. Then they were very
successfully published as "Poetry" by Random House and Bantam Books. The
success of the books and radio performances inspired a line of jewelry and a
series of greeting cards, and most importantly perhaps, sacks of letters from
people who just wanted to say, "Thanks for putting the way I feel into words."
The best discription for the LOVIN TOUCH stories would probably be that they
are really the gentle ravings of a man who was suddenly shocked to find himself
in love. For those of you who may have heard or read some of these stories over
the years, you may be pleased to know that Dick is still shocked, still raving,
and still in love with the same woman.

Lovin Touch, February 12,
Reviewer: radiospots from Framingham, Ma. United States
Dick Summer is a legendary broadcaster who elevated his craft to new creative
levels during his on-air career. Today, with projects like "Lovin Touch" he is
able to touch so many lives with his words of emotion and passion, so finely
crafted and delivered. Dick has done so much for the spoken word and "Lovin
Touch" represents some of his best work. Most of all, it's his smooth, silky
voice that will draw in the listener. He's a frequent guest on my late night
radio show and the lines always light up with people wanting to get in touch
with the "poet of the airwaves."
Soft reminders of the importance
of a lover, February 7, 2004 Reviewer: John D. Sykes (see more about
me) from Hollis, NH USA Dick's timeless velvet voice has once again spoken the
words that take us back to our early days of new love. Both sensuous and
childlike, he reminds us of when our love was new and full of joy and intrigue.
He guides us through a small crowded world in an escape of love and
Have we taken for granted how important our lovers are to
us? Dick asks us to cozy up together for Just a Minute with wine and candle
wax. Making love in the rain is far better than going to formal balls; sharing
pizza and wine with our lover is more fun than the material things many of us
I first heard Dick Summer on WBZ in my youth of the 60's, and
was delighted to find him again on CD. Put a fire in the hearth, pour your
lover a glass of wine and cozy up with the romantic words of Lovin Touch, and
think about why you are lovers. It will be magic.

it really is high fidelity eroticism. Not the sexuality of a four color monthly
read only for the articles but the sensuality of a mahogany table top with four
generations of hand rubbed polish. Dick's blend of prose and music creates a
level of anticipation that becomes it's own reward, a wistful recollection of
romantic synergy that, if you're incredibly lucky, repeats itself for the rest
of your life.

Reviewer: ozzieshwa from Brooklyn, New York United States
heard of Dick Summer before. I believe he was a New York DJ on 66 WNBC Radio.
I think this book is just wonderful! I have listened to it many times.
Over and Over again. I gan't get enough of it. Or his voice. He knows how to
tell a story,poem and just makes you feel so good. I wish more people could get
a little taste of his work. Then they will be hooked as am I. Looking forward
to more of Dick Summer's work.

"Lovin Touch" by Dick Summer
Review by Paul Berge
(author of "Ailerona")
Top down on the '64 Galaxy, warm summer exhaust
of the Palisades Parkway blowing through hair that's on fire for the first time
in years. Night turns to dawn on grass where the dew cools passions leftover
from memories still forming. It's your first season of love; it's your reunion
with life. Poet, Dick Summer, offers a glimpse-not back-but into life when love
meant everything and everything else could wait.
"Lovin Touch" is a
storyteller's journey to a place you've already been but perhaps forgot to
notice. With a voice like fireplace smoke, Summer walks you through the
moonlight of your own romantic past to meet yourselves-the you and the someone
who walks with you-returning arm-in-arm, a head pressed to your shoulder, and
smiles that just won't go away.
Lovin Touch is a personal audio
collection meant to be felt rather than merely heard. Park the car along the
Palisades, spread a blanket, pass the flask of single-malt temptation, and
drink in the lights across the river. Caution: Do not operate heavy
relationships after listening to Lovin Touch.
