Now with a personal music collection of more than 60,000 tunes, a garage packed with a dozen antique cars, and loving radio more than ever, he’s living the dream.

He furthered his “education” as he worked for one of the largest record stores in New York City witnessing one of the greatest eras in music, the 60’s. He later started his own band and got signed to Mercury records. These days he’s married and has one son who seems to be taking up where Ric left off as a music major and multi-instrumentalist. Ric also owns a recording business where, at times, he and his son frequently hang out and jam. Aside from radio and music, Ric and his wife also trained in the art of Shaolin-Kempo Karate. Both are martial arts instructors and they both hold the rank of Black Belt.

  • MARQUETTE REDETTES GIRLS BASKETBALL (50) VS GLADSTONE BRAVES (31) ON 97.5 GTO

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: Sports

    Gladstone, MIDecember 4th, 2018 – It was basketball night in Gladstone as the Marquette Redettes faced the Gladstone Braves. It was Marquette’s first game of the season, and they looked to start out strong. Luke G. was there live to bring you all the action live on 97.5 GTO FM!

    The game started out slow, with the opening tip being taken by the Braves. The Marquette Redettes were unable to stop Gladstone from scoring first, but they answered back soon after. Thanks to some great passing, Marquette was able to stay just a few points behind the Braves for much of the quarter, and they tied the game at 5-5 going into the end of the first.

    First Quarter Score
    Marquette Redettes: 5
    Gladstone Braves: 5

    After a tightly contested first quarter, the Marquette Redettes were looking to break out and take the lead against the Gladstone Braves. That’s just what they did as they went on a huge scoring run through the first part of the quarter, eventually ending with a 20-8 lead with about four minutes left in the first half. The Braves narrowed their deficit to just 10 points, but they simply couldn’t contain the Redettes explosive speed and ball movement. It was 26-14 in favor of Marquette with about one minute left in the half, and the Redettes did their best to keep Gladstone from adding any points to their first half score.

    It felt like a safe lead for the Marquette Redettes, but the Gladstone Braves seemed to have discovered their defense, keeping Marquette’s lead below 15 for much of the first part of the second half. The ball was traded back and forth several times with the gap remaining at 15 as the quarter passed the halfway mark. It was 36-19 with just three minutes left, but the Redettes extended their lead to 38-19 on a jump shot through traffic. As the quarter wound down, Marquette had doubled the Braves’ score, and things looked good for the Redettes for the final quarter of play.

    Third Quarter Score
    Marquette Redettes: 40
    Gladstone Braves: 22

    The Marquette Redettes only had to fend off the Braves for one more quarter as time started coming off the clock in the fourth. They had a hefty lead, and Marquette looked to control the ball to burn time off the scoreboard. Gladstone put in the first basket of the quarter, but it only made a small dent in the Redettes’ large lead. It was 49-27 with two minutes left in the game, and it looked as Marquette had all but sealed the win. It was a great start to the season, and the Marquette Redettes were ready for their next challenge.

    Final Game Score
    Marquette Redettes: 50
    Gladstone Braves: 31

    Marquette, MI – June 16, 2018 – Marquette Township’s “Catch the Vision” Car Show and Cruise took over the Westwood Mall parking lot near Appleebee’s for year nine of the community car show. Township folk walked down each aisle to see all the classic cars, win some prizes, and have a great time.  Major Discount was on the scene to tell you about all the excitement.

    Listeners heard from numerous guests over the year while tuned into GTO 97.5! Everyone was eager to tell listeners about the day’s events. Today’s Car Show started around 11am as the Westwood Mall parking lot filled up with classic and modern vehicles. This year saw the return of a fan favorite, “Rev it Up”.  All of the participants let loose and floored their gas pedals!  The owner of the vehicle with the best “scream” won one of the numerous prizes that were given away during the afternoon.

    Following “Rev It Up”, Mike from Crossroads Truck Repair set up his large wrecker as an anchor for vehicles during “The Burn Out”. One by one vehicles rolling into the spot and chained up their vehicles to the wrecker. Putting the pedal to the floor, each contestant, including the station’s own WRUP Van, spun their tires and let the smoke fill the air! Everyone had an impressive display but only one could be the winner of 2 brand new tires from Pomp’s Tire!
