Remembering Dick Clark…

Last week I was especially sorry to hear of Dick Clark’s passing. Back in 1994, I had the distinct pleasure of doing some business with Dick Clark. At the time I worked for a company called Xpedite Systems, and we provided a fax broadcast message delivery service to companies in the entertainment industry. I remember making a cold call to a company called United Stations. After explaining a bit about our service offering, the syndication manager at United Stations thought it would be easier to have me fax the ‘on-air’ copy to station affiliates than do it themselves.
One day I stopped by the offices of United Stations to pick up a fax delivery list when I ran into Dick Clark standing in the reception area, and we got around to talking. (I was surprised by his reddish hair!)
Long story short, I found out later that Dick Clark owned United Stations. He must have found out about the service I was providing to United Stations, and a few weeks later this autographed photo arrived in the mail. Dick Clark was a regular guy, and he will missed…
