starters" when you sleep alone. Some of them are fictionalized versions of
listeners' calls to Dick Summer's late night radio program on NBC Radio. Some
of them are from Dick's own personal experiences. And a few are "once upon a

Without getting too
syrupy, Dick Summer's CD's leaves you with a feeling akin to the long drive
home after an everything-went-just-perfectly first date when you were eighteen
(or 48!). Like the Supreme Court justice who couldn't define pornography but
"knew it when he saw it", or the "fact" that anything spoken with a British
accent sounds "smarter", Dick's work is endearing and personal and defies
A Magical Voice! - Dick Summer!, March 2, 2003
Reviewer: John from Florida
I just listened to this Cd again
after about 30 times . His voice is the sound of a soft summer shower as you
are walking through a forest ; as sensual as a first kiss from the girl you
admired for months but were afraid to apparoach; Dick Summer is the the only
one that could dull your nerves and at the same time heighten your senses!
Thank You , Dick Summer!

Reviewer: Jim Crossan from South Carolina
you grew up in the northeast in the '60s and '70s, you know that Dick Summer
was the king of late night radio! He wasn't a bombastic monarch of the
airwaves, but a soothing, reassuring and entertaining storyteller. When I first
found out about this CD, it was like meeting up with an old friend! You'll
enjoy these stories ESPECIALLY if you have company at bedtime ; )! They'll
definitely enhance the experience. Even if you're not familiar with Mr.
Summer's work, get this CD for some bigtime bedtime fun...

Dick Summer is a great story teller! Whether you are
familiar with Dick from his Loving Touch books of poetry or from his career in
radio, you will welcome this CD. The CD should also create new fans for Dick's
warm and soothing style of narration.
Dick says his father and mother
used to read bedtime stories to him. His father spoke of adventure and his
mother read him poetry.
Dick's bedtime stories are about love. They're
told from the standpoint of a man speaking to a woman. They are about mature
love, immature love, requited and unrequited love and even illicit love.
Dick's delivery is also very smooth and intimate. From some of the
stories, I felt as if he were saying things I haven't got the words to say. A
woman listening will most likely feel that Dick is speaking directly to
I'm an unabashed Dick Summer fan and I recommend this
