Brian McKenna

Brian McKenna has been bringing his humorous, swashbuckling style of broadcasting to the St. Louis airwaves since 1994. He began his radio career as an intern at KASP, St. Louis’ first all-sports station. In 1995, he co-hosted The Casino Queen Sports Grill weekday afternoons with KPLR Sports Director Rich Gould on 590 The Fan KFNS. Brian also worked as a reporter for Fox Sports News covering the Cardinals and the Blues. In 2000, McKenna became the newest member of The Breakfast Club with JC Corcoran on KLOU 103.3 FM. While at KLOU, he was as an analyst for the St. Louis Rams Radio Network pre/post game shows. Always the innovator, never the duplicator, he and Joe DeNiro introduced “Guy Talk” radio to the St. Louis market in the fall of 2003 with Midday Mayhem on 1380 The Team. Brian was also the host and producer of the “Rams Pregame Report” on KDNL ABC30 from 2001-2004. Brian recently hosted “Mayhem in the AM” at 590 The Fan KFNS and “Afternoon Mayhem” on 1380 The Fan2. He has written comedy for Joe Buck, been a guest on Oprah and appeared in an NBC mini-series. He received a Marketing Degree from Southeast Missouri State University. 

Brian is a former Personal Trainer and a fitness freak.  His passions are working out and surfing. Brian has been involved with many local charities and organizations including: Nurses for Newborns, American Cancer Society, National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias, Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America and Big Brothers Big Sisters to name a few. McKenna is one of 10 children and has 72 nieces and nephews. Brian resides in St. Louis Hills.

Jeff Burton

Jeff Burton was born and raised in Fenton, MO and attended Vianney, Eureka and Lindbergh High Schools.  He got a start in radio in Springfield, MO in 1986 and then came to St. Louis three months after 105.7 The Point came on the air where he hosted the Jeff, Trish and Thom Show until The Point was sold to Emmis. After 11 months on Red@ 104.9 Burton was reunited with Thom West for the afternoons on The Point where they remained as the No. 1 noon show in St. Louis for nearly seven straight years. Jeff had several broadcast opportunities outside the country that include Sydney for the 2000 Olympics and Dublin, Ireland over St. Patrick’s Day.  Later in 2011, Thom and Jeff started doing podcasts at thethomandjeffshow.com and on iTunes. Jeff helped launch internet radio in St. Louis via talkstl.com. In Jeff’s free time, he enjoys letting the wind hit his face riding a 2007 Suzuki Boulevard. Jeff resides in Eureka with Juli and their two daughters, Abby and Casey.

Strong Words on Personal Responsibility

By Jeff Burton

We had a lively and at times heated discussion Wednesday about violence in the city of St. Louis. Listeners called and texted with how they see the situation. Too many single moms. Too many deadbeat dads. Agree and agree.


But, this is information we know already. So we asked for solutions. A bad-kid attitude starts at home right? Bad parenting or no parenting at all. So the solution is better parenting right? Well, as is mostly the case, easier said than done. If you are on welfare, do you get a break on birth control? If you are a single mom truly trying to make a better life for your kids, are there government subsidies that are available?


Great; let’s give them food stamps and call it a cure. While we help the single moms who are struggling to make ends meet why not go after the "dads" who are walking around downtown STL in the middle of the day doing nothing but posing. You think you are a tough guy because you sell drugs and flip off cops as they drive by?


You want me to be impressed? Get a f***ing job and support your kids! If you think this is a "black thing," it most certainly is not. I worked downtown for many, many years. I drove through the projects back when there was projects. I have a black friend who lived in the projects. I was at his house in the projects many times. It’s not a black problem. It’s an attitude problem. Yes, I am blaming the dads here. The dads of every flipping color in and out of the rainbow!


"The world is full of guys Loyd, be a man.”


I have said it a million times: Got to have a license to drive a car, but not to be a parent. Thanks for reading these thoughts of mine. Now I want your thoughts.
