"QUE PASA RAZA?"
Radio & Records Are My Passion So Here's A Little More About How I Did It!
Rick Nuhn has been a player in this game of music for more than 3 decades. His “Double Sided “career features extensive playing time in both radio & records. On the radio side Rick has been a personality, music director, and program director at a wide variety of formats. He began his radio days in Phoenix AZ doing a jazz thing at KXTC which later changed to a Disco format where Rick was nominated for Billboard’s PD of the year. Music Director, Program Director, and personality stints at KXAM, KOPA, KZZP, K-15, and KUKQ followed and then Rick headed west from the sun to the beach for the morning drive slot at the legendary KGFJ in Los Angeles.
A change was in the works after 2 years of wakeups as Rick began the flip side of his career, with Atlantic Records where he won Rookie of the Year and Promotion Person of the Year Awards, and the R&B Report award as Regional Promotion Person of the Year. Next was New York City as National Director of Promotion and a Billboard nomination as Promotion Person of the Year. During this stint at East West Records, Rick also won the Gavin Report award as National Promotion Person of the Year. A segue to MJJ Records working for Michael Jackson as the Vice President of Promotion was next and that was followed by his tenure at Warner Brother Records where he successfully closed out Phase One.
Rick is currently the host of the nationally syndicated show, Top Ten Now And Then, heard Saturday Mornings on KHHT / Hot 92.3 in Los Angeles. His penchant for doing both radio and records continues in his role as Senior Director of Urban Music for the the Concord Music Group. The Concord Music Group is home to some of the worlds greatest music featuring acts Like Angie Stone, George Benson, Al Jarreau, Norman Brown, Poncho Sanchez, & Boney James, and is also home to STAX Records and artists like Paul McCartney, John Fogerty, & Eddie Palmieri
