Rik’s love for radio began when he as 12, growing up near Chicago. He followed his dream first by becoming a DJ for American Forces Radio in 1978 with the United States Air Force.  Rik's radio career has spanned several markets including Cincinnati, Denver, Sacramento and even Guam before settling here in St. Louis in 1995.  When he’s not playing the role of Senior Producer here at OnSTL, you can hear him many evenings and every weekend at 92.3 WIL-FM.  Besides radio, Rik’s other passions include flying a plane, listening to music, going to the movies and being with his wife of 34 years. He has two grown children Shauna and Brad.

Movie Review - PAIN & GAIN

Written by
Our 25th movie for 2013 is PAIN & GAIN starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie. My wife pointed out that the trailer for Pain & Gain was very misleading. She thought the movie was an action comedy with a hint of Ocean’s 11. This movie was none of that. It’s a bloody…

Movie Review - OBLIVION -

Written by
OBLIVION – Think of Minority Report meets War of the Worlds meets Mission Impossible and little Top Gun thrown in for good measure. This Sci-Fi action movie is finally a Tom Cruise movie I DIDN’T MIND PAYING FOR. The plot had several twists and kept our interest throughout. The CGI’d…

Movie Review - 42

Written by
42 – I am a baseball fan and when I saw the trailer for this last year, I knew this one was going to be special.  I was NOT disappointed. Harrison Ford was magnificent as Brooklyn Dodgers Executive Branch Rickey, very worthy of some awards next winter. This movie drives…

Movie Review - Scary Movie 5

Written by
SCARY MOVIE V - This is the ideal movie for those in need of some mindless fun and some belly laughs. It delivered both. This is NOT a movie you need to see on the big screen. If you’ve bought into the slapstick and somewhat gross antics of the previous…

Movie Review - The Host

Written by
THE HOST – This film came out last week, but with the hoopla of Easter weekend we finally caught it today.  Thanks to Eileen for suggesting we go see it.  Honestly, I’m not sure why the critics are detesting this alien, body snatcher-esque movie.  I thought Saoirse Ronan (The Lovely…

Admission - Movie Review

Written by
ADMISSION – This film came out last Friday and the trailer didn’t win me over.  The movie, on the other-hand, did. Paul Rudd plays a very charming teacher/father and Tina Fey plays an un-yielding admissions officer for Princeton.  I enjoyed the very cutesy/witty verbal fencing match between the two characters…

OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN - Movie Review

Written by
OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN ... AND I CAN'T GET UP! – A disturbing movie about a disgraced secret service officer, who becomes a “John McClane” one-man Army to save the president. Think of it as the original Die Hard, but it’s the White House instead of an LA skyscraper. Our first…

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone - Review

Written by
THE INCREDIBLE BURT WONDERSTONE – It’s Siegfried and Roy (minus the tigers) VS Chris Angel in this magical comedy. Albeit this movie won’t get any considerations come Oscar time, it was a fun movie full of laughs and a few gross out moments courtesy of Jim Carrey. It’s not necessary…

OZ, THE GREAT AND POWERFUL Movie Review

Written by
OZ, THE GREAT AND POWERFUL – Bravo Disney.  This precursor to The Wizard of Oz has some of the best 3D effects I’ve seen I awhile. The colors pop, the action is wonderful and highly entertaining.  This is a must see in 3D. The younger kid units might find it…

DARK SKIES MOVIE REVIEW

Written by
DARK SKIES - We finally got a chance to see this release from a two weeks ago.  Think of it as Close Encounters meets Paranormal Activity, but not as good as either of those movies. The movie was at least better than the trailer, but was more laughable than suspenseful.…
