DJ Richard

HELLO RADIO! DJ Richard’s wake-up call to Cross FM listeners and his infectious and vibrant personality make him one of the most popular DJs at the station. Through his avid love of music, Richard became a professional dancer, joining Marky Mark’s funky bunch back in the 80s before making a move to DJing via voice announcing. Crossing the pond to Japan, Richard was discovered street DJing in Nagoya and appeared regularly on radio, TV and as an MC at the Nagoya Dome. A year ago, he jumped on an offer to host his own show in Fukuoka where he injects his own flavor and gives the Japanese people a lot to smile about. “People look forward to my show like their cup of coffee in the morning.” Aside from music, Richard also enjoys teaching. But his burning ambition lies in another pastime – cooking. “My ultimate aim is to run a soul food restaurant.” Watch this space! More info:
