Reliving the memories and magic of radios from years gone by.

        We had Dick come for our Senior Appreciation Luncheon at Southside Church of Christ. I was very pleased with his professionalism even before we met him in all our e-mail communication. He seemed willing to go the extra mile to make the program enjoyable and entertaining for our group of about 50 seniors. He brought his collection of antique radios for display as well as trivia sheets about radio. His program was very enjoyable. We laughed and cried together as we remembered the Way Radio Was. Despite a brief interruption of power due to a storm, the program continued with very little ado. The comments of our people were very positive, and we will most certainly have Dick back in the future.

        Dick Karman’s “Reliving Radio” program is an extremely high-quality and affordable show that was very well-received in our senior community. Dick addressed countless old radio programs, and with amusing anecdotes about each, but there are numerous more that he did not have time to mention and will be able to cover in a later show. The residents and I appreciated the strength of his vocal delivery and the enormous amount of time he surely has spent compiling the radio recordings and photographs into an easy-to follow performance. I am thankful for his enthusiasm and for his sharing his unique interest with us.

        We had Dick Karman do his “Reliving Radio” Show [the Way Radio Was] yesterday and our residents really enjoyed reminiscing about the old radio programs, ads and songs – he brought many smiles to their faces. He was very professional, sounding like an old-time radio announcer, and flowed from one thing to the next. Talking to him afterwards, I found out he has many other programs, including background music for dinners, etc. and we will definitely be having him back. Thank you.

        I want to let you know how much my residents loved Dick Karman’s performance on The Way Radio Was. He is full of historical tidbits and trivia. We all learned so much! He keeps the audience riveted with music, news, and commercials. He presented an impressive display of old-time radios, microphones, and equipment. I recommend his show and we are all excited to have him back soon.

        The Program Committee of Retired Associates of Portland State University (RAPSU) asked me to tell you how satisfied our members were with Dick Karman’s “[Reliving] Radio Man” presentation. He was a big hit with the members and will be asked back soon! Bill D.

        Dear Pam, I want to recommend--Dick Karman with ReLiving Radio. He is a favorite of my residents at Milwaukie Convalescent center. They love the music and it brings tears to their eyes at times to remember the "good old days". He is very well organized and has a wide array of materials to share. K.R.
