You'd know Dick Dale from his 1962 signature song, "Misirlou", which was made popular again when used on the soundtrack at the start of Pulp Fiction. Dale was considered "The King of Surf Guitar" and his electric playing influenced many rock guitarists like Jimi Hendrix and Pete Townshend. Dale only died in 2019.
Dick Cavett is a former talk show host who had many cultural icons on his show, e.g. David Bowie, Janis Joplin, Ingmar Bergman, Salvador Dalí. He started in the 60s and continued up into the 90. He was known for his affable but honest interviewing style (it never seemed like he was sticking to the questions on his cards).
