Liverpool radio star Rick Houghton joins In Demand Radio


Liverpool radio favourite Rick Houghton has announced that he is joining In Demand Radio to host two brand new shows.

The station launched last year for Liverpool and the North West, created by the team behind Reminisce Festival, co-founded by DJs Lee Butler and Steve Cocky.

Liverpool born Rick has been broadcasting to the North West for over 30 years, on Radio City, Rock FM and Real Radio and most recently across the whole of the UK on Greatest Hits Radio. Rick will be taking over 2 weekend shows; Rick Houghton’s Saturday Live at 10am, and In Demand Decades, Sunday mornings from 6am, playing 80’s feel good pop. Rick will also be working with the In Demand team to help develop new concepts for the station.

Listen to the podcast below where Rick joins Jay Hynd to talk about his 30 year career, the stations he’s called home, the broadcasters who have inspired him and how he believes local radio has a much brighter future that you might think.



On joining In Demand Rick said:

“In Demand is an amazing radio station, the following the station has built up in such a short time has been incredible. I believe listeners want and need local radio more than ever. There is no better place for me to be, presenting radio shows across the North West, talking to the audience I love, in my own back yard – I can’t wait to get started”.

In Demand Radio launched on DAB last year and is now a firm favourite in the city with the likes of Baz Todd, Jonny Bongo, Ian Longo, Gemma Cutting, Dave Graham and The Guide Liverpool’s Jay Hynd on the lineup. The Brekky Butler hosted by Lee Butler wakes you up every weekday morning 6-10am. Listen in live and find out more here.

Rick Houghton’s new shows launch on Saturday 27th March, sponsored by Rybrook Chester & Warrington Volvo. You can listen to In Demand Radio on DAB, online at and via the app
