Late last week we had the pleasure of interviewing someone who we both find to be inspirational, a future leader and fantastic role model – Richie Hardcore.  He stands up for what he believes in and is a great voice for those who cannot be heard, always has a positive attitude, is selfless and an all round good guy.

Richie Hardcore, an inspiring guy we met and liked a lot.

Sometimes Auckland feels like a small place, which is great if you like running into people (which we do). A few weeks ago we strolled up to check out the new Coco’s Baretta on K’Road, and bumped into a lovely lady called Barbara who runs the Karangahape Road Business Association.

Richie Hardcore is pretty much a real life superhero. Not only is he a Muay Thai boxing champion, he’s a Community Action Youth and Drugs facilitator for Auckland Council, a personal trainer and a radio host on 95bfm. Plus, he’s a vegetarian who abstains from alcohol and drugs and he avoids materials that use animal products. Bit of a legend!

RICHIE HARDCORE, at 32 has been 95 BFM’s quintessential punk and hard-core DJ for the past 12 years. When he’s not playing tunes and giving his thoughts on air, he works for CAYAD, a Ministry of Health initiative focused on reducing the damage drugs and alcohol cause in our society. Richie also competes internationally in Muay Thai fighting (hence his black eye!) However this hard-core guy has a real soft heart when it comes to compassion and environmental responsibility.

bFM DJ, kickboxing middleweight and hardcore aficionado Richie Hardcore and pop-minded X Factor runner-up Chris Rene make for an unlikely Talking Heads pairing, but they’re united in their proximity to addiction and their sobriety.

Among the tattoos on Richie Hardcore’s forearm is a song lyric in thick black capital letters that reads: P.M.A ‘TIL I’M D.O.A.

PMA or Positive Mental Attitude sums up the philosophy Mr Hardcore brings to everything he does, including his work as a Community Action Youth and Drugs facilitator for Auckland Council.
