Rick McCarthy

Jazz Host

A Tasteful Blend, 6am-9am, Thursdays and Fridays

Rick was born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and moved around a lot as a child, finally settling in Westborough, Massachusetts at the age of 16. Being a drummer, at that time he sought out other musicians and began playing in rock bands, a bad habit he still cannot seem to shake. Rick fell in love with jazz when, in his early 20's, he heard the tune "Lil Darlin'" by the Count Basie Orchestra. His love of the music has grown exponentially ever since that day. In the late 80's, Rick discovered WICN and he became a fan of many of the shows -- particularly A Tasteful Blend, which at that time was hosted by the wonderful musician, educator, and producer, Jack Wertheimer. Hosting A Tasteful Blend  is an absolute dream come true for Rick. When not on the radio, Rick works as a Technical Writer for the EMC Corporation. Much to his wife Lisa's chagrin, Rick maintains an ever growing collection of LPs and CDs…another bad habit he can't seem to shake! Rick and Lisa have two children, Zachary and Amelia.
