About the DJ

DJ Rick Johnson has been involved in car shows and cruises for over 14 years. I started broadcasting as a DJ at radio station WCND in Shelbyville in 1987. I have worked at Frankfort stations WFKY and WKED. I left radio in the mid 90’s. Since then I have been doing car shows and cruises in Kentucky and Indiana. My love of cars and people has made this an enjoyable hobby.

I graduated from Franklin County High School in 1975, attended broadcasting classes at Fugazzi College in Lexington and graduated from KSU with an Associate degree in computer science. I have made a career out of Information Technology and currently retired from the Commonwealth of Kentucky. I have a great family and am married to Susan Heady Johnson. We have twin daughters and two beautiful grandchildren.

From an early age I have always had a love for cars. At the age of 12 I worked at my dad’s gas station and body shop (formerly Bridgeport Body Shop and now Johnson’s Body Shop, which is owned by my brother). My first car was a 1956 Chevy which I bought in 1969. Painted it purple, had the interior completely redone and ended up selling it for $200 in 1975. I got a 1968 Camaro in 1975 as a graduation gift and it still sits in the garage being restored (family laugh).

I plan on doing cruise-ins and car shows as long as it remains fun and does not become a job. Hope to see you at the next event. Have a safe trip home.
