August 14, out of the nations capital emerged DJ Rico. Raised on the streets of a city where the hustle and bustle creates melodic sounds he was destined to fall in love with music at an early age. Fresh out of high school Rico began to pursue any type of job that would provide him with the exposure and experience in the music industry that he longed for. He soon began arranging sound equipment for local bands and while attending Howard University began DJ’ing in the Metropolitan area’s hottest nightclubs.
In 1991 DJ Rico took his career to the next level when he became a part-time DJ/Mixer at WPGC 95.5. Under the influence of radio greats, such as Donnie Simpson, Rico’s presence at the station grew till he became one of Washington DC’s most influential DJ’s, on-air personalities and even an assistant producer for Donnie’s show. There is not a community within an earshot of WPGC that he has not touched in one way or another. His passion as a community activist has led him to be well known by the youth of the city as a mentor and a role model who speaks on the importance of education and self respect. Rico is also well known for the experience that he offers party-goers while he not only enjoys the music that he plays but has a unique way of keeping the dance floor packed. This has caused his followers to deem him “The Noisemaker”.
After 19 years of service with WPGC DJ Rico is now ready to further expand his career, and allow the rest of the country to experience the talents that he has to offer the Radio and Music Industry. In such a time where music is especially key in bringing people, communities and even the country together. Rico is ready to make it a “Noisemaker Nation”.
