Richard Wright


Richard was always interested in music & radio from an early age, presenting radio programmes from his bedroom in his early teens using an old disco deck which consisted of two turntables and a cassette deck.

He went on to join Joyce Green Hospital Radio in Dartford, Kent in 1979, where he presented the very early stages of what is now called The ‘Wright Sounds,’ his current programme on Tarka Radio. He has also been involved, as a presenter, in other radio organisations such as RTM 103.8fm a local station that broadcast to South East London North West Kent and a large part of Essex & Air Fair Radio a commentary service for the Biggin Hill Air Show every year from 1990 to 1997.

But his passion is popular music from the early 50’s up to at least the late 80’s. Abba, Beatles & Queen, being his favourites. He has also run a mobile disco & pop music quizzes in pubs & clubs for the past 30 years.

 The Wright Sounds includes musical features, such as The Kids Classic (remember Junior Choice?) The Music Sandwich Quiz, The A To Z Of UK Number Ones plus a host of others. Even his wife Kerrisa helps produce the programme from the infamous Mulberry Studio and has her own feature... Producers Choice

Richard plays mainly popular music you do not hear on mainstream radio with the odd classic hit thrown in and has a lot to chat about it as well.

His other programme The Vintage Comedy Hour is his other passion comedy on the radio which includes Round The Horne & the radio adapted version of Dad’s Army.

Richard also is the current Programme Controller and is one of Tarka Radio’s Trustees.
