How Radio Isnt Done Part 19: The Richard Lyons Story Part 3

February 23, 2006
Solo

Dont worry, this is the last one. But we couldnt sum up the career of Richard Lyons without focusing on his culmination of radio disconcertion, Dick Vaughn. This guy was all about Moribund Music Of The ’70s, and he did it first. Bringing ’70s nostalgia to the early ’80s, Dick Vaughn shrewdly tapped in to all that music that captivated his listener demographics when they were in high school, and they rewarded him with somewhat questionable devotion. Then he died in a plane crash. Well, lets move on.

We continue with this tribute to one of radios greatest…. Well, maybe not. Anyway, many OTE segments from the past highlight Richard Lyons’ on-air character, Dick Goodbody, and his many contests testing the publics knowledge of cars and TV products.
Through a whole array of elaborate quiz formats, Dick Goodbody exploited American trivia and became radios most beloved source of annoyance.

We review this /”legend of radio/” through many segments of Pastor Dick shows, including endless Bible Quizzes, and Dick Goodbody contests on TV and commercial product trivia.
