Rigdon Osmond “Rick” Dees III (born March 14, 1950) is an American radio personality, stand-up comedian, celebrity, and voice artist, famous for his internationally-syndicated radio show “The Rick Dees Weekly Top 40 Countdown” and for the 1976 novelty song “Disco Duck”. Dees is a People’s Choice Award receiver, a Grammy-nominated performing artist, and Program Hall of Fame inductee. He composed two tunes that appear in the movie “Saturday Night Fever”, plus performed the title tune for the movie “Meatballs”.

After 23 years on radio station KIIS FM, Dees left in 2004 because of a contract dispute, and he was replaced by Ryan Seacrest. On April 15, 2009, Movin 93.9 altered structure, blowing off its radio personalities and altering the structure to Spanish Modern or Spanish Hits. Dees has continued his Weekly Top 40 show each week , and it has hosted The Daily Dees, a four-hour noon show, Monday through Friday on stations throughout America. From May 4, 2011, until July 6, 2012, Dees hosted the morning show at R&B oldies station (and sister station of KIIS FM) KHHT, “Hot 92.3” in Los Angeles, as well as his national day-to-day program “Daily Dees.” Throughout his long career, Dees has garnered many accolades, such as the prestigious Marconi Award, induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame, as well as the National Association of Broadcasters Hall Of Fame. In 1984, he received a Grammy Award nomination because of his comedy record Hurt Me Baby — Get Me Write Bad Checks and has since received the Grammy Governor’s Award. His other comedy records — I am Not Crazy, Rick Dees’ Greatest Hit (The White Album), and Put It Where The Moon Don’t Shine have also appreciated global success.
