On Air Personality, Host Of The Rita And Raines Show, Program Director And Producer Of The KOKE FM Morning Show
Eric was born and raised right here in Texas! He has a little different perspective on radio because he has been on both sides of it…. behind the mic of course and, he spent 15 years of his life on and off the road with different bands.
He played drums with Ty England for 3 years and even got to play several times with Garth Brooks Stillwater band. After that it was on the road with Rick Trevino and even had a brief stint with Cory Morrow. He finally gave up on that dream after kids arrived in his life. He still plays on the weekends with a local cover band Sprung.
He started his radio career here in Central Texas and he feels lucky to be back working in the area he has lived in since he was four. His radio career has spanned 15 years and in that time he was a innovator of the medium. While working for Starsystem, he was the first person to send a Voice Track in the new modern radio world. He was also proud to host The Music Series in Austin for 6 years.
