Remembering Dwight Rich -- he gave it all he had
There was a "method to his madness" Colleague remembers a favorite saying
Related: Dwight Rich, 54, Adair County, KY (1963-2017)
By Lisa Fisher Clark
Radio lost a good friend this week with the passing of Dwight Rich. I met Dwight 31 years ago when I began working in Columbia at another radio station. He actually worked part-time at the same station. This past year, I had the pleasure of working with him again, this time at the WAVE. I always looked forward to Friday afternoons because Dwight would hang out with me on the air and we just had fun.
When he was not in the studio with me, he'd be in the production room next door. There's a window separating the two rooms, and I'd see his arms flying up in the air and he'd be screaming into the microphone! When he wasn't recording, he'd have the music for his show blaring so loud it would shake the window and the floor! I knew not to read a newscast live while he was recording because he certainly gave it all he had.
I will also think of Dwight Rich when I hear, "there's a method to my madness", because he'd say that every Friday afternoon when we asked a trivia question. One Friday afternoon when I first started at the WAVE, Dwight picked out a song for our trivia that was a little on the hard rock side. A few minutes later, I got a call from Mike Harris (owner) who was not a big fan of the song, especially at three-thirty in the afternoon, lol.
I recorded a show a few weeks ago with Dwight and I'll be playing parts of the show this Friday afternoon from 3-5pmCT in his memory. That's my way of remembering my Friday afternoon 'partner-in-crime". R.I.P. Dwight Rich -- LC
