Last night, Debbie and I were having dinner out at a local ocean-front hotel, following our 10-day Harley road trip, featuring several days of ducking nasty weather and one broken-down-bike mishap outside of Portland, ME. All in all, we covered 800 miles riding through five New England states. Near the end of the evening I heard a voice I had not heard in well over a decade. But after spending many years in the 1990s, when Debbie and I first moved to Key West, watching Imus in the Morning, I could not forget the distinctive gravely voice of former New York City Police Department detective Bo Dietl.
Bo had always been one my favorite Imus guests, in part because of Bo’s terrific stories about Rao’s restaurant in East Harlem, New York. You do not just walk into Rao’s or call for a Friday night reservation. You have to own the rights to a table. And Bo Dietel is, as he told us last evening, the proud owner of table number one.
You have no doubt seen Bo through the years either on Imus or on the Fox News Network or perhaps Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas or The Wolf of Wall Street movies.
Bo Dietl has served as Security Consultant to the Republican National Convention and as Director of the New York State Republican Convention. Today Bo is the owner of Beau Dietl & Associates Private Investigators in New York.
