Hi I'm Mike Rickard.
Like many of the presenters on LMR music has been in my life from quite an early age!
My parents had music in the house most of the time everything from Paul Robeson and Jose Feliciano to ELP, Queen and Abba.
My first experience of Jazz funk was when my Dad brought home the “Touchdown” album by Bob James in 1978. pretty much since then I have been hooked! Following Jazz funk, Fusion, Contemporary Jazz or Smooth Jazz with a lot of Soul, Disco, and Funk!
I have always got music playing somewhere and try to see as many live shows as I can, more often than not I can be found at Pizza Express in Soho.
I’m very excited about joining the LMR family you can expect some Classic Jazz funk from the 70s right up to Smooth Jazz of Today as we sort though some crates to find The Dusty Groove!
