Bob Rivers

Rivers was born in Branford, Connecticut on July 7, 1956 and raised as a Catholic. On the air, he occasionally referred to the work ethic and competitive streak he learned from his parents. (His father was the head of a utility company.[8]) He is the eldest of several children in his family; next in line is Beth, and his other three sisters are Patty, a school teacher, Mary, and Catherine. He has a brother, Michael, fifteen years younger.

He knew from an early age that he wanted to be on radio. At the age of 15, he released a bootleg AM broadcast from the basement of his family's home (a prank which his mother put a stop to). He also started a high-school radio show. He got his first paying radio job when he was 16, but reputedly was fired for playing too much Led Zeppelin.

Robert "Bob" Rivers (born July 7, 1956 in Branford, Connecticut) is an American rock and roll radio on-air personality in the Pacific Northwest, as well as a prolific producer and songwriter of parody songs, most famous for his Christmas song parodies. His album Twisted Christmas was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Rivers' last regular radio program, The Bob Rivers Show with Bob, Spike and Joe, was broadcast on Seattle oldies station KJR-FM until August 8, 2014, ending a 25-year run in the Seattle market.

Rivers plays keyboards for a cover band affiliated with the show, Spike and the Impalers.
