One full time job is more than enough for most of us to handle, but since he began hosting Drive in 2008, Rich has managed to not only release several well-received musical albums (including 2011's excellent 20 Odd Years), tour, and perform regularly, but he even found the time to write a book of stories from his life, a project that's slated to be published later in 2014. (For an idea of his talent for storytelling, just read some of his captivating posts on Facebook)
I have endeavoured in my life to stay attached to my childhood as much as I can, to try to preserve a sense of innocence and wonder
As you'll hear in the interview, Rich is a compelling storyteller, full of amazing anecdotes from his life, and is tremendously honest with his experiences. During our conversation he speaks about his early - and mostly secret - infatuation with the arts growing up, his beginnings as a musician during the Halifax-pop explosion of the 1990s, and some of the exhilarating ups, and heartbreaking downs that he's faced over his multifaceted career as a musician and broadcaster.
