Richard Wilson -Richie Rich
Presenting: Woodstock Rock
Born in Scotland and grew up in the 60’s and 70’s, appreciating the music of the time. Moved to Australia in early 80’s. Love the climate and lifestyle in Perth I live in the hills with my wife Denise, and teenage son and daughter.
How did you become involved?
WR had a turnover of staff and the word went out on air for any listeners who would be keen to have a go. I passed the “screen test” and got the gig! That was almost ten years ago!
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
- Argus – Wishbone Ash
- Dark Side of the Moon – Pink Floyd
- Benefit. – Jethro Tull
- Cutter and the Clan – Runrig
- Captain and Me – The Doobie Brothers
What is the best thing about being involved with the station?
You get to go on air and play and talk about your favourite music, for hopefully an appreciative audience. Help support_a totally original and unique radio station.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you in the RTRFM studio?
I took a call from a listener who wanted me to play a song for his friend who had just committed suicide!
If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?
I used to enjoy shows called “Folkwest” and” Acoustic Roots” I don’t think we cater for those genres anymore.
What do you do in real life?
I work as a sales rep for an industrial clothing company. Apart from my interest in music I’m also a Junior Soccer coach. Suburban husband and dad to two teenage children.
