Brian is an institution himself, and who better than him to helm Gold 90.5 FM? He always sounds upbeat on radio and that's inspirational for listeners.

Yes, without doubt, one of the better DJs on national radio. Others talk with marbles in their mouths, trying to emulate the orang-putehs. Brian Richmond is a natural and always polite but informative.

Brian is also an accomplished actor. Still see him acting in some of the local shows.

A loving family man too. He's been reviving 60s music all these years.

The best of Brian Peter Richmond is on Gold 90 FM. Music is in his bloodstream. His untiring efforts in spinning songs of the 1960s keeps you young at heart.
Cheers!
