Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Richard Dorian "Dickie" Goodman (April 19, 1934 - November 6, 1989) was an American music producer. Goodman was born in Brooklyn, New York. He is known for his novelty records that would sample famous songs popular at the time to humorous effect. Dickie Goodman took that first step towards sampling, remixing, and symbolic juxtaposition. He was the first performer to use fragments of other people's hits to build his own chartbusters. Whether it was a Martian with Little Richard's voice, a President copping lyrics from an Alice Cooper track, or a shark with a taste for the Bee Gees, Goodman's "snippet" records became popular Top 40 radio movies.show more
