Q102’s Mike Adam is back for another music beat and this time he’s joined by beloved television personality Marc Summers! The game show host turned Food Network staple talks about how he got his start and childhood dreams of being in television. Longtime fans will remember him as the host of the game show “Double Dare” on Nickelodeon. But his career also includes ventures in comedy, talk shows and famously the Food Network program “Unwrapped,” on which he lead viewers on tours of food-related factories and kitchens.

“The goal was always to take over Johnny Carson’s spot as many of the comics in the seventies who came to L.A. tried to do,” Summers explained.

But instead, he became a beloved icon in his own right, inspiring a cameo on sitcom “Workaholics” and amassing a horde of fans between his various ventures. Take a look!

And be sure to tune into Eye Opener, a different kind of morning show, weekdays from 6 to 8 a.m. on PHL-17.
