These Are The Things We'll Share
by Dick Noel
Dick Noel (1927 to 2017) was an American 'big band' vocalist and soloist. Richard S Noel was born on May 27th 1927 in Brooklyn, New York, USA. He served in the US Navy during World War Two, and began his music career in 1965, singing with many big bands including the 'Ray Anthony Orchestra' (he was featured vocalist on their hit "Count Every Star"). As a solo artist, he also recorded singles for the 'Decca' and 'Fraternity' labels, and was regularly featured on radio shows in Cincinnati (the "Ruth Lyons Show") and Chicago ("Breakfast Club", with Don McNeill). He also made television appearances on the 'CBS' presentations "Talent Scouts" (with Arthur Godfrey) and the "Tennessee Ernie Ford Show". After leaving the latter TV series, he went on to be dubbed "The King of the Jingles" while subsequently recording about 15,000 commercial spots, including national advertising themes for the 'McDonald's' and 'United Airlines' brands. In 1978 though, he returned briefly to mainstream music to release the album "A Time for Love", in collaboration with pianist Larry Novak. It included such popular ballads as "Send in the Clowns", "Ballad of the Sad Young Men" and "Here's That Rainy Day". However, by the late 1980s he had retired completely from the business to California with his family. Dick Noel died after a long illness in Escondido, California, on September 27th 2017, aged 90. He leaves his wife of 40 years, Nancy, plus two daughters.

Hundreds of very talented musicians pass away each year, some without much recognition at all. On "Rest In Peace", I aim to give them a fitting 'send-off', with a decent Tribute. I hope you will join me in marking their passing.....
