A Brief Encounter With Dick Cavett

January 1, 2015

By Pat Batcheller

"To have a life unroll in which I met everybody I ever wanted to and then some, and plenty that I didn't, it has seemed kind of like a strange long dream."

Dick Cavett.

Dick Cavett has met and interviewed some of the world’s most interesting people: Muhammad Ali, Steve Jobs, and John Lennon to name a few. He introduces us to some of them in a new book called “Brief Encounters”. Cavett tells WDET’s Pat Batcheller that he got to know some of his guests well enough to befriend them and to mourn those who’ve died. Click on the audio link above to hear the conversation.
