For the first several decades of The Radio Reader's existence, the program was heard only in the mid-Michigan area and book selections were somewhat haphazard ranging from classics such as Pride and Prejudice, Huckleberry Finn, and A Christmas Carol to recently published works as The Bridges at Toko-Ri and Doctor Zhivago. When Dick became the reader, he focused the program to presenting only newly published books. As a result, interest in The Radio Reader grew to the point that other public radio stations wanted to air the program. A network of stations was created and today The Radio Reader is heard across the country by an audience of over one-million.
