Richie Rich - Kiss FM (1991)
Another Kiss FM tape, but the first time I've dropped a Richie Rich show. There was no date on the tape (courtesy of Diseone) but Im guessing its early 1991, or possibly late 1990.
Richie was one of the bigger Hip Hop DJs in London in the mid-late 80s, holding down shows on Kiss in both its pirate and legal forms. He also set up Gee St Records which was the UK outlet for releases by Jungle Brothers, PM Dawn and Gravediggaz amongst others.
Although his own productions were mainly Hip Hop based cut-n-paste affairs, he also dropped the classic 'Salsa House' before ending up presenting on MTV Europe in the early 90s. Since then he pretty much disappeared. I've been told he gave up music and found God.
