Tom Dooley, Master Media Ministry, Dallas, TX
Tom was a friend and mentor to Rick for over 30 years.
In November Tom passed away at his home after battling a brain tumor. In the months before his diagnosis he recorded these very kind words.

“Working with Rick continues to be a very rewarding experience. Not only does his range cover a wide variety of projects…he is incredibly easy to work with, anticipates where I’m headed with voice over needs, and will update quickly when those inevitable client changes comes racing at you.
No matter the need…Rick is there. And I’m always looking forward to our next project together.”

He grabs concepts; he brings fresh POVs; he delivers. Have an audio project? Take the opportunity to discuss it with Rick.”

Never with Rick. He is a perfectionist in every thing he has done. His work is of the highest quality and always consistent. When our office requires a male voice talent, the first person we contact is always Rick Tarrant.”

Bill Rock, Show Host, Sirius Satellite Radio
[reported to Rick at Sirius Satellite Radio]
“When I was asked by Sirius management to be the first voice ever on Elvis Radio on Sirius Satellite Radio, we were starting something totally different than anything else that existed in radio. Shortly after, Rick was hired as PD of this unique property. We were in uncharted waters; one radio station playing just one artist 24/7. Keeping the sound both fresh and spontaneous, especially with an artist who died over 3 decades ago, was a challenge. Rick was able to meet this challenge plus he brought a home-town Memphis flavor to the work of the King of Rock and Roll. This “experiment” in radio not only survived but flurished to this day where I do a Saturday evening show. Working with Rick was a real pleasure. Rick has the ability to be both innovative and creative as well as being receptive to ideas from others. This is a trait that is essential to be a successful programmer. Plus, Rick can execute as well as manage. He has a solid radio and production background. But most importantly to me Rick is a kind and caring individual who not only creates but listens, making him both a great colleague and friend.”
