Richard Blade became a fixture on the American music scene in 1982 when he started as a DJ at KROQ. Within a few months he became the #1 arbitron-rated radio personality on the West Coast. Now, Richard is what in today’s terms is called a hyphenate! He is a working DJ – producer-writer-host-v/o talent-creator. You’ve seen him on TV, Film and hear him on both Sirius XM and on our own JACK FM hosting “Richard Blade’s Flashback Lunch” Mon-Fri.
It is only fitting for us to have him out to spin great tunes and introduce Depeche Mode: 101 as he had a similar role (the introduction part, anyway) introducing the band to 65,000 Depeche Mode fans at the original Music For The Masses concert Rose Bowl show that 101 is based on.
