Rock N' Rhett Butler
Evening Show Host/Weekends
Rhett started his broadcast career in Jackson Tennessee at WKBJ AM (Milan, TN) as a board op on Saturday mornings, and engineer for Casey Kasem’s American Top 40 on Sundays. Within 2 months he was “Promoted” to overnights on the am jams sister FM station “The Nu 92 FM” (WYNU). He moved back to Memphis keeping his overnight gig and picked up Weekend overnights at Rock 103 (WZXR). HE considers his first “Big Time” gig in the Biz to be the first job that made him move in order to accept, which was 99.5 KRIX Brownsville TX. He also began working in the Rio Grande Valleys high-energy dance Station (KRGV/KRGE) as the “Z-Man”.
When he moved to the Monterey Bay Area in California he was again in the right place at the right time, because the local classical radio station flipped from KBACH (KBOQ) to K-ROCK 103.9 (KRQC), where he landed his first F/T Morning Drive shift and kept it while commuting to the University of the Pacific in Stockton. It was at UOP he met Darren McGavin, Ralph Guild, and Jon Crabbe (all UOP Alums), as they recognized his commercial broadcasting experience as well as a natural real-world business style, they handed him the task of building a new campus radio station of, by, and for the students. He built KPAC – “The Runaway Radio Station” which is currently known as “The Roar of the Pacific“ and the next semester he created KPAC-TV as well.
Rhett was the epitome of a “Road Warrior” as he literally travelled around the world (over 7 times mileage wise) while working in the High-Tech industry in Silicon Valley since the dawn of the 21st century. Fast forward to January 2020…… He constructed and launched KRIR-db “RetroRock Internet Radio”.

Pariah Burke grew up banging his impressive head of hair to 80s and 90s hard rock, heavy metal, and hair band albums he played all the way through while wondering why even the coolest FM stations only ever played the singles. Living and playing in bands in Daytona Beach back when Bike Week was still awesome, Pariah developed a taste for Harleys and whiskey, and began DJing Bike Week events and mud wrestling. Later, somehow still in possession of his full hearing, Pariah embraced the ability of Internet radio to reach hard rock, heavy metal, and hair band fans all over the world. He started the Hard, Heavy & Hair with Pariah Burke syndicated radio show to bring to all those fans the biggest hits but even more so the non-single album tracks, the “deep cuts,” that make albums great but never get air play during regular radio rotation.
