    Dick Tyler lived the iron history many love to read about, and in this recording, part one of two, he tells of his experiences of Muscle Beach in the '40s and '50s and the early bodybuilding shows of the '60s. We hear his memories of the old-time strongmen, the arrival of Arnold to California, Jack LaLanne's gym challenges and much more.

    Parts One and Two stand alone, but he's sure to leave you wanting more. Here's Dick Tyler, Part Two if you'd like to grab both recordings at once.

    "The important thing is that we have a very beautiful history, a beautiful background. It’s not a freak show. It’s not a bunch of muscle-bound people without any brains. We have wonderful and bright people who have been bodybuilders in all different professions. They wanted to be better at doing something they enjoyed."~Dick Tyler

    Here's a short clip to give you an idea of what this lecture sounds like:

    LECTURER BIO

    Dick Tyler was an actor, journalist and writer who paid for chiropractic school by writing most of the articles in the Weider magazines during the mid-'60s to early '70s. If you enjoy his stories, you'll love his fabulous book of Golden Era bodybuilding, West Coast Bodybuilding Scene. Dick is a practicing chiropractor in Rocklin, California.


    "Dick Tyler wove a rich tapestry of words that a whole generation of bodybuilders and fans alike grew up on. As vivid as those tales were, they almost pale in comparison to hear him telling the stories himself. You'll find yourself hanging on to every word as Dick recounts story after fascinating story. A natural storyteller, he infuses each tale as if it were a one-man show on Broadway where he once starred!"
    ~Jeff Preston, Raw-Iron

    Wow! Fantastic insight into the behind-the-scenes lives of bodybuilding's golden-age heroes. Dick does such a good job of making these guys into real-life, likable characters who just, oh by the way, happen to be bodybuilding icons. The story of Arnold's driving prowess was worth the price of admission alone :) Can't wait for Part II!
