Ricci Ware began his radio career in the mid 1950’s in Baytown, Texas. He married his high school sweetheart, Mimi (The Moot), in 1957, and they moved to Austin, Texas, where Ricci worked for LBJ at KTBC radio and television.
While passing through Austin, radio legend Gordon McLendon heard Ricci on the radio, and hired him on the spot to come to KTSA in San Antonio, where Ricci became a household name … and one of the city’s most popular and well-known DJs during the 1960s.
In the early 1970s, Ricci moved to KBUC and formed the legendary team of Ricci and Jud. Their humor and political commentary made radio history. And if being on the air every day was not enough, at this time, Ricci was the owner of Pan American Speedway, and also a weatherman on KSAT television. His plate was full!
Ricci returned to KTSA in 1983, and introduced talk radio to the legendary top-40 station. Ricci retired from KTSA in 2012, and is currently enjoying life with his family, including his beloved dog, Gabby.
