As one of Richard's former DJ's, I was so saddened to learn of his passing. He was a good boss, a great American and a great man as well. RIP, Rock. You are deeply missed

i'd like to visit his resting spot to pay my respects...i really liked this guy. he gave my band a big break in the flats at biggies, as he did with many others, but chose us "the breaks" to be "house band" in '82-'83. please respectfully direct me to his final resting place or contact to any of the great gals who worked for him in that era..

Julie I'm so sorry for your loss. I use to work with Ritchie at Biggie's. I had found him on FB. We had chatted a few times about the old days. Know you are in my thoughts and and prayers.
