Afternoons With Rich Drake


Mon-Fri 2PM-6PM


My Sign: Aquarius

Hey it’s Rich Drake. You can listen to me each weekday afternoon (Monday-Friday 2-7pm) on Bay Country 97.9 and online here at and/or on the Tune In Radio App.
We play the best new country and keep you up to date with local community events and happenings while giving you chances to win cool prizes (we love to give away concert tickets).
I have currently been on Bay Country 97.9 since October 2018 when the station joined the GSB Media family. In addition to my on-air position, I also serve as the Music Director for Bay Country 97.9, which means I have the privilege of helping choose the music that plays on the station. I previously worked at Bay Country 97.9 from 2011-2016. I have worked on various stations on Delmarva for the past 22 years. In addition to Bay Country 97.9, I can currently be heard on GSB Media’s sister stations (96.5/101.5 CTG and WOW 101.1/99.3).

I have lived on the Eastern Shore of Maryland my entire life and have loved every second of it. I feel this is truly one of the best places to live and the people here are amazing. I love being outside during the warmer weather months and enjoying our various waterways including the ocean, rivers, and bays.

But truthfully one of the best things about working at Bay Country 97.9 is being able to interact with you, the listener. I feel we have the best listeners, and we love meeting and interacting with you. Without you we wouldn’t be successful, so thank you for listening each and every day. And if you ever know of any event that should be mentioned on the air, please don’t hesitate to send us an e-mail at [email protected] or contact us on Facebook. Feel free to message us anytime to say hello and let us know what is going on!
