Ricky Bartlett

Ricky is a Georgia native who has been living in Iowa since 2006.  He is the Mid-Morning Show Host for Classic KMRY 93.1fm/1450am.  Ricky is a left leg amputee, but despite this hardship, Ricky has always seen the world with positive reflection. This is in part due to a strong mother who, though living in the projects of Columbus, Georgia, taught him to "never close his eyes to the possibilities beyond the crumbling walls surrounding him".  While he has outgrown many self-esteem issues he once had as a child, drawing still creates a sense of space allowing him to focus deeply on his past, present and future.   Ricky also loves to help people relate art to their disabilities.
