- THE VOICE FROM THE GLASS BOOTH ON HIGH Marty Young 46:17
In an era known for its Rock & Roll music and performers, many Boomer teens were even more connected to the on air radio personalities who spun the platters on the top radio stations across the nation.
These “disc jockeys” had their faithful followings who listened as much for their comments as the records they played.
Every decent-sized town had them, but for a few years in the late 50’s/early 60’s Indianapolis had Dick Summer, broadcasting live weeknights from Merrill’s Hi-Decker Drive In on WIBC, 1070 AM
Dick went on to major markets in Boston & NYC, earning him R&R Hall of Fame On Air Personality notoriety.
Episode 213 of TPC is an interview w/ the guy with the velvet voice, Dick Summer, about those years in Indy. It’s filled w/ anecdotes & stories of his Hoosier years behind the microphone and much more.
It’s a special installment
