Thanks for stopping by! I'm Rick - and I'm half of the morning show Rick and Carly on WOW Country 104.3! I was born and raised in San Diego, California, where I was nicknamed the "Country Surfer" by my buddies. I only had one country station to listen to growing up - and when I wasn't listening to that - I was on my board catching waves! Country music is my true love - and I've been blessed to be on-air for country stations the past 15 years. When I'm not on-air, you can find me camping, hiking, snowboarding, or spending time with my family! I'm a proud father to four beautiful daughters and one handsome son...and I have my dog Cali too! She's a mini Pomeranian. Thank you for welcoming me on your airwaves and I appreciate you listening!
