Album Notes
Rich Renik, a native Chicagoan, has been involved with music since six years of age when he began accordion lessons. That love of music culminated when he landed his first radio job in Fairbanks, Alaska while serving in the U.S. Army in 1968.

Since his honorable discharge from the service in 1970, Rich has been a fixture in Chicago radio with shows airing on such stations such as WMAQ-AM (NBC), where he performed for thirteen years.

Additional on-air stints included the Satellite Music Network, Interstate Radio Network and participation in numerous television fund raising activities for Public Television, Muscular Dystrophy and the Easter Seals Foundation.

For fifteen years, Rich was heard on Chicago's - WUSN 99.5FM (US99), and now is proud to be on Your Hometown Country Station – WCCQ (98.3) - playing all of the music you know and love!

Rich has recorded two narrative record projects - a narrative album in Nashville, Tennessee and a single release of "Yes, Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus", backed with "The Night Before Christmas".

Rich is also a published author. In 2004, Rich wrote a leadership book, entitled, "Engaging Employees in the Business of Success", which is available on various inter-net sites - including Amazon.com.

Rich can be heard as the voice on the Illinois Department of Transportation Traffic Information radio system as well as the voice of Pro-Football Weekly with Dan Hampton.

Rich is married to Barbara and lives in Orland Park, and is the proud Grandfather of nine children (with another on the way in May)!

While his principle hobbies are SCUBA diving and Sky diving, his passion remains music.

Hearing this classic Christmas piece was simply wonderful.
I loved listening to my dad read this editorial many years ago, now to hear it again is simply wonderful. It's a timeless classic that should be shared with children of all ages. We seem to have lost sight of the power of dreaming.


Absolutely inspiring !! A must if you have children!
We played this last Christmas Eve for our entire family. We now have begun a new family tradition. I recommend this for everyone. Our kids really enjoyed listening to this.

It was great to find this piece and fun to order for Christmas.
I used to enjoy reading Yes, Virgaina, There Is A Santa Claus in the newspapers when my children were growing up .. then it disappeared. Finding this now will give me the chance to once again share the magic with my 3 grand children. This work is wonderfully presented and with "The Night Before Christmas" included, we seem to have Christmas covered for this year!
