Rick Shaw, the voice of South Florida Rock 'n Roll Radio Photo Gallery - click on image to view

The legendary and long popular Rick Shaw (Jim Hummel) retired on May 11, 2007 after 51 years on the radio, the last 47 years on South Florida radio stations. His first job in radio was in 1956 in East St. Louis, followed by jobs on Omaha and Denver radio stations. Rick moved to Miami in 1960 and he started with Miami's WCKR 610AM (later WIOD). He moved over to WQAM 560AM Tiger Radio in 1963. He pulled a radio ratings historical high of 54 in 1964 while at WQAM meaning that more radio listeners were tuned into his show than all the other Miami stations combined. Everyone remembers him playing Ray Peterson's "Goodnight My Love" as his show's sign-off song and he played it again on his farewell show on WMXJ-FM. Hear it again at: < http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xo-PO5FUkE . Rick had a Saturday Hop afternoon TV show on Channel 10 in the 60's, and in 1965 "The Rick Shaw Show" started every morning Monday through Friday on WLBW-TV Channel 10, an MTV-type show featuring the latest rock and roll songs being lip-synched by local performers in South Florida scenes. In the 70s Rick moved to program director at RKO's WAXY-FM 106.7 because FM stations were overtaking AM stations. He finished his on-air career at WMXJ-FM "Majic 102.7", the only oldies station in South Florida. Rick will continue his activities with the Majic Children's Fund, a worthwhile charity that assists needy children especially around the holidays. Thank you Rick for many great memories during our lifetime, especially when we were teenagers in the 60's. May you have a long healthy and happy retirement. I believe that Rick is still available for a short presentation at South Florida high school reunions. He gives a short speech and then shows a really dramatic fast-paced video full of images of news events and music from the 1960's.

Channel 4 WFOR-TV's great video of Rick's full farewell message to his listeners on May 11, 2007, is located at: http://video.yahoo.com/video/play?vid=1114468986&fr=
