Dick Biondi Film

Dick Biondi is a local treasure; a man who has literally seen the entire history of rock and roll from a front row seat. Pam Pulice is a filmmaker who has spent some time with Dick, getting him to tell his stories on film. Now it's time to raise the money to finish the project. I worked with Dick for many years and heard a lot of these tales, and trust me, they need to be preserved. (Photo: Dick and I appearing together on Lossano & Friends).

Pam sent this e-mail out with the details of how/where to contribute...

The Dick Biondi Film is a documentary film about one of 20th century's most influential radio personalities: Dick Biondi.

As you know ... Dick was an early rebel — changing the way we listened to radio.

Biondi was the first DJ to pay the Beatles on the radio in the U.S.; and, he helped shape the careers of recording artists like Tony Orlando, Frankie Valli, Bobby Rydell, Frankie Avalon, the Rolling Stones, and more.

Now it’s time for us to pay tribute to this man who brought us so much joy, fun, and incredible entertainment for over 6 decades.

Help us by making a pledge ... You'll earn some pretty neat rewards! (Click here to check out the goodies.)
