Richard Koch

I’ve loved radio ever since I built my first crystal set when I was 8. I’m a bit of a guitar freak (not that you could tell!) and I love guitar driven music especially from the 70s and 80s, such as the Eagles and Cold Chisel.

Great music puts a shiver down my spine, and can bring tears to my eyes! I’m also a fan of the Album as a music form as it communicates the “culture” and “place” of the artist at that time.

I live on the Bass Coast and consider myself very fortunate! I have opinions on most things and love to wax philosophically.
