Rick Mark Adams (better credited as DJ Rick) (born on 16 October 1971) is an English television presenter and online radio DJ.


Radio KOL

Rick Adams has hosted Radio AOL, the first ever live radio show for children aged 6-15 approximately, broadcast on AOL. He frequently entertains listeners with guest celebrities visiting the show and a variety of games including MooBaa, where Rick will give a guest 30 seconds to guess whether an animal he names is a cow (by saying Moo) or a sheep (by saying Baa).

On 23 November 2007, Rick announced that AOL was planning to cancel Radio KOL. 5 days later, on 28 November 2007, Radio KOL presented its final show.

A petition set up by loyal fans has been signed by over 500 fans, listeners, KOL Staff, and celebrities.

On 13 February 2008, AOL discontinued all of its live video streams. This has made it even more difficult for the still-loyal supporters of the former Radio KOL to envision a new show.

CBS Saturday Morning

During the 2006-2007 television season, Rick Adams also hosted CBS's KOL Secret Slumber Party TV series, Dance Revolution inspired by the hit video game franchise, Dance Dance Revolution.

The show ran for one season, but was cancelled by CBS.

Rick also appeared in a replacement show, "Sushi Pack". The cartoon once aired Saturdays, on national CBS syndication before being replaced by shows like Busytown Mysteries and Noonbory and the Super Seven.

Past Careers

Prior to his work at Radio KOL and Dance Revolution, Rick hosted television and radio shows for a variety of leading networks including Nickelodeon, Children's BBC, Bravo and ITV in the UK on which he presented Crazy Cottage a wacky kids gameshow. He was once the co-host of Channel 4's The Big Breakfast, which was a hugely popular morning television show in the UK, and has co-hosted Nickelodeon US's Slime Time Live and Nickelodeon UK telecasts of the US Kid's Choice Awards, which he co-hosted one year with Whitney Houston. Rick also presented Rick's Rickshaw on Nick JR, a chat show where he interviewed guests whilst pulling them around the studio in a rickshaw. Guests were often 'live action' cartoon characters, such as someone dressed as Cow from Cow And Chicken. In 2002 he co-hosted Mission: Paintball on Bravo TV[1] alongside Emily Booth.
