Dear Radio Reader listeners,

It is with great sadness that I announce The Radio Reader will cease
production at the end of the current book,
Rogue Lawyer.

Health issues have compelled Dick to make the difficult and
heart-breaking decision to hang up his microphone after more than half
a century as The Radio Reader.

Best wishes can be emailed to Dick
or write to him:

Dick's illness has caused serious financial stress.  Contributions would
be welcome and can be sent to the above address or to

With or without a contribution, Dick would appreciate hearing from you.
