Audible Editor Reviews

In the late 1960s Dick Cavett took the talk show and elevated it with his personal brand of wit and intellect. With his unwillingness to appeal to the lowest common denominator, Cavett introduced audiences to controversial and progressive ideas along with legendary musicians and comics. It’s a real treat then, to hear Cavett converse with journalist Eddy Friedfeld and look back all the highs and lows that have made Cavett’s career so memorable. Entertaining anecdotes are mixed with replays of rare and unforgettable clips, ensuring there is more than enough here to garner repeat listens.

    Thank God for a mother that read to all the time. Now I can not go anywhere without iPod and headphones. Books allow me to be an armchair traveler, student and audience.

    "Dick Cavett"

    What can I say, who does not like Dick Cavett. He goes through his early years, his show biz years and his walks and talks with William Styron, Art Buchwald about their depress. Very entertaining.
