Rick's been in radio for over a decade, and he's been with Rock 106.3 since 2014. He likes all kinds of music, especially music with loud guitars. A lifelong metal fan, Rick loves the classics like Priest, Maiden, Motorhead and Sabbath, as well as old-school thrash like Anthrax, Slayer, Megadeth and the first 4 Metallica albums. He's also a big classic rock fan too, with Floyd and Zeppelin being at the top of his list of all-time favorites.
When he's not on the radio, Rick can usually be found pawing through the vinyl bins at any of Portland's used record stores (and if you've got a copy of Motorhead's "No Remorse" album in the original leather sleeve, he'll give you $40 for it...)
Favorite Maiden album: Piece Of Mind
Favorite Priest album: Sad Wings Of Destiny
Favorite Sabbath album: Sabotage
Favorite Motorhead: Rock n' Roll
Greatest thrash album of all time, according to Rick: Slayer's "Reign In Blood" (don't even try to argue with him...)
Iâ€™ll never forgot the first time I fell in love with rock and metal music. I was in the 4th grade when my parents showed me a video of an Alice Cooper concert. It was a life changing moment. I fell in love with Alice Cooper that night. When most children list their heroes they put their favorite athlete or their parents. For me the answer was always (and still is) Alice Cooper. Aliceâ€™s music gave me the strength to be myself and was my introduction to all things rock and metal. I am a diehard Guns Nâ€™ Roses and Type O Negative fan as well. I listen to everything from classic rock to more obscure extreme metal bands. Outside of radio you can find me belly dancing throughout Portland or sitting at home gaming with my boyfriend. I am a big supporter of animal rescue and adoption and have two pets snakes named Sabusa and Crowley and sweet kitty named Kasha. I am thrilled to be here on Rock 106.3 and look forward to sharing lots of great music with you!
