From the time he was a teenager, Rick Wrigley always knew that he wanted to be a broadcaster. He grew up listening to great radio stations like WPDQ and WAPE in Jacksonville Florida in the USA. His early influencers were the DJs that rocked the radio dial in the late 50s through the 70s.
In 1963 he did his first radio show at WUSC in Columbia South Carolina and that experience locked it all in for him. He found magic in spinning the records and making people feel good as they went through the day. His career spanned the decades with gigs in front of the mike and behind the scenes in both radio and television. His TV career included working on remote teams for NBC, CBS,ABC, PBS and ESPN. But radio was always his first love. To that point, now that he is semi-retired he is back on the air at WUSC now an FM station doing an oldies show.
He can also be heard on several internet radio, most notably Radio Tatras International. He jumped at the chance to join the RTI team because of the other professional voices that cover the globe with great music and talk. His shows are “old school” in that his style is high speed, high energy with high production value.
