CATCHING A WAVE

Jammin’ James Riley bio   The term “old soul” has been used more often than not to describe James Riley.  His mom’s Elvis albums and movies like American Graffiti and Buddy Holly Story helped shape his musical tastes as a kid growing up in Louisville, KY in the 70’s that continue to this day.  Riley got a BA degree in Communication Arts at Georgetown College in Georgetown, KY where he took an active role at WRVG on campus.  He’s been a fixture in the radio promotions scene since 1993 having worked for a variety of Christian record companies such as Word, Provident, Inpop and R.E.X. Records and now co-owns Old Fashioned Radio Publicity to focus Ameripolitan, Americana, Blues, Surf and other roots radio formats. James hosted Rockabilly N Blues Radio Hour from early 2014 through early 2021 before reviving Catching A Wave in February 2021 (a show he hosted from September 2016-December 2017).  In 2016, Riley was nominated for DJ Of The Year at the Ameripolitan Music Awards and again in 2017 when he won the award.   People were constantly asking for him to bring Catching A Wave back and he finally jumped back on the surfboard to bring the best in surf/summer/beach tunes!  His wife Beth has a weekly segment on the show called “Surf’s Up: Beth’s Beach Boys Break” where you can hear a deep track from America’s band.  Plus, there are more segments like “Wheel Of Fun, Fun, Fun”, Catching A Wave Time Machine and the Jammin’ James Jukebox selection/trivia of the week.   He married his best friend, Beth Riley, in May 2020 and they work together on both the radio promotions side of things as well as a podcast and radio shows.  Beth also hosts her own syndicated show called Boppin’ With Beth which she started September 2020!   For more information, check out www.catchingawaveradio.blogspot.com   James Riley rileypromo@gmail.com

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 McGavinRalph 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”. A web music entertainment network with 11 different Formats & 7 Globally Syndicated shows that run  throughout the week on a 24/7  broadcast schedule.
