  1. As a “listener only” fan of Dick, going way back into the late 50’s…I always preferred his less aggressive, more reasonable on-air persona, compared to say, the more ebullient Pat O’ Day….those two guys really stepped up in to the big leagues of promotion, when they formed Concerts West!…and they took on Jimi Hendrix, as their very first client!…I am guessing that Dick had a few stories about handling Hendrix…Pat certainly did!….the icons of my youth are dying–and that means my time will be coming around in the not too distant future…Life goes by way too fast!

  2. I don’t think anyone knows more about the radio and entertainment life and times of Dick Curtis than Eric Dawes. Eric had been spending much of his time, visiting, taking Dick to doctors appts and more! Eric you are and were a real a Godsend for Dick. Hat ‘s off to you Eric. Personally, I feel blessed to have worked with and for Dick! We had our ups and downs, but I loved it all. Dick was a one of a kind that I personally put right up there with Pat O’Day, another great mentor for many of us. Thanks Dick, my life is so much better for knowing you!! God speed!
