Rachel grew up in a theatrical and musical household and caught the acting bug very early in life. By the time she was 12 she was a professional child actor in theatre and television, appearing in such gems as “Prisoner Cell Block H”, “Neighbours” and worse!!!. She was approached by a commercial radio station in the late 90’s to host a 2 hour _chat_ show with a fantastic co-host and the show lasted for a fun filled year. Rachel enjoyed the medium as it allowed her to go to work in her PJ’s and look like a train wreck if she so wished. Perhaps that is why she is BACK behind the mic!
Rick’s love of radio began at the campus radio station of a small college in New York. Drafted for the Viet Nam war, he was fortunate to be sent in the opposite direction to host afternoon drive at “The Rock of East Africa” (an American radio station in Asmara, Ethiopia). After returning to the U.S., he spent the next ten years working in commercial radio in New York and Florida. Rick then transitioned to multimedia production (hey, the money was better than radio), but when he retired, he was thrilled to find RTI FM. He had come home.

Rich has spent most of his life listening to and loving music and radio, and working in the radio, music and media businesses. From high school and college radio to recent on-air work at stations like WRNJ (where he hosted The Rest of the Week with Rich Appel and filled in mornings, middays and afternoons), WGHT and Pop Gold Radio (where he’s filled in as host forThe Time Machine countdown), it’s all led up to that thing.
