"Radio" Rich Dalton
While “Radio” Rich Dalton worked in several different formats during his on-air career in St. Louis, he was most frequently associated with the musical format that showcased his seemingly endless knowledge of the artists and their songs.
While working at KSHE from 1983-1991, Dalton hosted the Sunday morning “KSHE Classics” program that spotlighted vintage classic rock, blending his conversation with the music that put KSHE on the map.
He started working at St. Louis University’s student station KBIL in 1969 and spent some time in Los Angeles and Kansas City before putting down roots in St. Louis.
After returning to the Emmis cluster, Dalton was called upon to create and program one of the company’s local digital stations.
