AfterPartyPod: Riki Rachtman


Riki RachtmanTV and radio host Riki Rachtman may have the tattoos and rocker guy persona of a tough guy but make no mistake—he’s a sweetheart. The host of MTV’s Headbangers Ball and former owner of the Cathouse club, Rachtman now hosts Racing Rocks on over 120 radio stations and also lives a life free of drugs and alcohol after a multi-year battle with the substances. (No, he wants to assure you, he’s actually been absolutely sober for a lot of the “stupid shit” he’s done over the past 20 years.) (There have been some fights.) In this podcast (which features the new intro—can you name who’s talking in it?), we talk about how he went from DJ to club owner, the drug that made him see dogs that weren’t there, how he cleaned up and a whole lot more.
