A Few Words From Rich:

Music has always had a special place in my heart. As a child, I would listen to the radio 24 hours a day. I eventually started winning those contests you hear on the radio…concert and movie tickets, trips, album collections, dinners, you name it. I was constantly going to the radio stations to pick up the prizes. I began to hangout and watch the DJ’s on the air and was really fascinated with them. “What a cool job!” I would always say.

My first experience on the microphone was doing the homeroom announcements in my junior year of High School. I was so nervous, I butchered the Pledge of Allegiance on the very first day. But that didn’t deter me; it only motivated me to practice and improve my skills. Since then, I’ve worked for some of the top radio stations in the Bay Area (KFRC, KWSS, HOT 97.7, KRTY, KARA, KBAY, and Mix 106.5) and have had great success with my company, Hey Mr. DJ.

On an even more personal note, I’m happily married and live in the Willow Glen area of San Jose with my incredible wife, Silvi, and our very hairy dog. We love to travel, walk on Los Gatos Creek Trail, dance, ride our bikes, and watch romantic comedies. We met at a Starbucks.”  :)
