My View: Culture & Cocktails with Dick Robinson at The Colony Hotel

Dick Robinson may have started his career in Radio in 1958 by playing Connie Frances’s record of “Who’s Sorry Now” but countless performing artists and radio audiences are definitely not sorry that Mr. Robinson has devoted his life to the popularization of music on his radio stations.  In addition, the hundreds of graduates from the Connecticut School of Broadcasting (the nation’s oldest and largest group of broadcast media schools), are not sorry that Mr. Robinson created that educational institution.  One can only imagine the accolades to Dick that would come from Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, and other composers thanking him for founding the nonprofit Society for the Preservation of the Great American Songbook.

Yesterday, at The Colony Hotel, The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County held the season’s finale conversation of their Culture & Cocktails series. The conversation was with the Broadcasting mastermind himself, DIck Robinson who was interviewed by Legends Radio Morning Hosts Jill & Rich Switzer.  There was no fake news in the Council’s ads for the event promising some “surprise musical guests”. Broadway star Avery Sommers treated the audience to a few stirring musical selections and Legends Radio’s Young Artist of the Year showed the audience that the Great American Songbook is in good hands and great vocal chords with his singing. Another surprise for the attendees was Broadway, Film, and TV Star Michele Lee who happened to be vacationing with friends in Palm Beach and attended the event.
