DJ Rick


Originally from the Milwaukee suburb of Cudahy, I have been blessed to call northern Wisconsin home for over 39 years now. I’m a 1975 graduate from the Institute of Broadcast Arts and have been employed at the Park Falls radio station (several ownership changes) in 1975-76, and have been the afternoon guy since June of 1999. I can honestly say I’ve never considered this a “job” because it’s fun, and most “jobs” in life don’t qualify as “FUN”. My real job (you know, the one that pays the bills) is in quality control at Flambeau River Papers. I have also been a licensed official in the WIAA for the last 22 years, doing basketball softball, and baseball. For over 20 years I also owned & operated Arrow Entertainment Mobile DJ service. I’ve been married to my wife Nancy for over 40 years and have two grown boys, Jason of Eau Claire and Jeffrey of Las Vegas. The most fun I have though is being around my two grandchildren, Ethan, 9 of Eau Claire & Farrah, almost 2 of Las Vegas.

In my spare time I enjoy traveling, especially to Mexico and Las Vegas, golfing, and cheering on our Wisconsin sports teams. I hope our listeners enjoy the 98Q Country afternoon show as much as I do putting it together. A little fun getting ya through mid days never hurts. My motto: Try to enjoy each day… don’t know what tomorrow will bring!
