Big Ric was a mouthy kid that turned out to be an even mouthier adult. Born and raised in the shadow of downtown Pittsburgh, Ric knew pretty early in his adult life that being a Calvin Klein model was out of the question due to his love of devouring Primanti’s sandwiches and Iron City beer. Having very little talent, Ric knew his only options for employment as an adult were catching cannon balls with his beer gut in a carnival side show, or running his mouth on the radio to the masses. Even though the carny life seemed appealing, one long and sobering night with the bearded lady made Ric run to the arms of the radio business and he has never looked back!
