Born and raised by Reese and Jean in Chicago. Youngest of three. First arrest by age 10. Suck on that Bieber, you wannabe.
My dad was in radio forever (Reese "Records" Rickards), and since I can remember, I always wanted to be like my dad. Worked in Milwaukee, Indy, Chicago and Denver before coming here in 1990. And I don't mind saying I had a pretty sweet paper route in '73. Pretty sure I coulda hit that Marcy at Dipper Dan at the mall, but puberty was still a few years out.
GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT (PERSONALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY)
Oh, I don't know...
Sat on a nuke,
Drove a fast attack USN submarine AND the freaking Batmobile,
Got felt up by Marcia Brady,
Taught countless children the filthiest joke known to man,
Mastered the tongue twister, "The seething sea ceaseth, and it sufficeth us."
1 wife: Nicole Faye. 2 children: Carly Townsend and Allie Grace. Three horses: Delilah, Fendi and Samson. Frankie the dog. Ok, there's a cat, too. Whatever, like you never did.
Golf, old movies, cooking and travel.
ROLE ON SHOW
ANYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD TO HELP US WRITE A BIO ABOUT YOU...
I've slept in the same bedroom as Queen Elizabeth, but who hasn't really?
FUN OR INTERESTING THING?
For years I've had this family heirloom, a decorative walking stick with a very fancy engraved knob on top. I did some research and found it was given to an Army Major who rode with Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders. He was wounded at San Juan Hill, saving TR's life.
So pretty much, if it weren't for my gallant Great Granddad, Teddy wouldn't have survived to become president, drop the atomic bomb on the eskimos, thus crushing the "Crimean Crisis" and saving the world from a world doomed to borscht and Spotted Dick.
