Now: Richard (now known as Uncle Ricky) says (5/05), "I have been out of work for over a year. I've applied for dozens of locally-advertised (Sacramento CA) jobs for which I was qualified, and only got two interviews. One was a radio job (thanks to an old radio friend) and the other was a software job. The money I've been living on is almost gone. And so, even though it is inappropriate, I have decided to use this website to advertise my availability for work. What will happen?" See reelradio.com/ricky/ready/index.html for details. "The Reel Top 40 Radio Repository is my contribution to a business that is allowed to forget me, but should never forget the great talent, creativity and stations that are celebrated here."
