Chadwick Benefield

Chad here! After 9 years of being one half of The WBKR Waking Crew, I am now one half of the all-new CB Radio Show here on WBKR! Our show runs 6a-9am CST Monday through Friday and I also co-host The BKR's Dozen Countdown with Dave Spencer each Saturday morning at 8am. In addition to flapping my lips on the air, I emcee a variety of events all over the state of Kentucky. I emcee charity functions, beauty pageants and dance competitions. I love country music. In fact, I love all kids of music. I listen to everything from Justin Moore to Katy Perry to Sam Smith to David Nail to Kings of Leon to Garth Brooks to Kelly Clarkson to J Hud and Pitbull. I love tennis, running, and reality television. When I am not working I am likely on the sectional watching The Blacklist, Project Runway, The Biggest Loser, American Horror Story, and pretty much anything on The Tennis Channel or ESPN. I vacation . . . a lot! I love Mexico and any place I can get to on a cruise ship.

The other day at work Brett had a slight wardrobe malfunction.  His button popped off his shorts and he was walking around the studio with his red Fruit of the Loom boxers hanging out the back of his pants.  Since neither one of us knows how to sew, we decided to get a little creative.  And we fixed his shorts using a variety of office supplies.  Check it out!

Kelly Clarkson Makes Keith Urban Fall to “Pieces” on American Idol [Video]

HUGE Kelly Clarkson fan right here!  And, yes.  I am an original American Idol voter.  The night of the Season One finale, I burned my phone up trying to make sure that Kelly would get enough votes to beat Justin Guarini in the final and earn the title of the first American Idol champion.  And this is why.  Her voice.  That voice!  On full display last night as Kelly returned to the show to guest judge for its final season.  And after judging the Top Ten performances, Kelly returned to the Idol stage and absolutely brought everyone watching to tears . . . including Keith Urban, who cried, sobbed, with the rest of this.  I suppose you could say we all fall to "Pieces."

What To Do When Your Dishwasher Smells [Video]

This is my friend Caroline.  And she has a problem.  She thinks her dishwasher smells like her cat climbed inside it and used it as a sandbox.  Clearly, that cat looks guilty.  But, since it's clearly dry, that obviously didn't happen. But Caroline's problem is a common one.  Dishwashers (and sinks) can sometimes smell.  Badly.  So what can you do about it?

Man Legally Changes His Name to Bacon Double Cheeseburger [Video]

This is absolutely bizarre.  Now, I happen to love food.  But I'm certainly not going to change my name "New York Strip steak" or "Quesadilla" or "Hot Brown."  But a man in the UK just legally changed his name from Sam Smith (not the singer) to Bacon Double Cheeseburger.
