Chadwick Benefield

Word to yo mama! Thanks for reading my bio. I have hand-crafted it with love and tenderness to give you a sneak peak inside my soul. I am entering my 16th year working at WBKR and just can't believe how quickly the years have flown by. If you listen to The WBKR Waking Crew, thanks! If you don't . . . thanks. LOL! Though I work here at The Country Station, I love all kinds of music and my iPod is loaded up with everything from Thomas Rhett to Katy Perry to Emeli Sande to Kings of Leon to Garth Brooks to Kelly Clarkson to Fall Out Boy to Matchbox Twenty to that little wrecking ball Miley Cyrus. I am an avid tennis fan (I've played my whole life and it is my absolute favorite sport) and I run every single day. In fact, that's how I dropped 30 pounds in 18 months. And I love watching television to wind down. My favorite shows are all over the place just like my tastes in music. I love The Blacklist, The X Factor, Sleepy Hollow, The Biggest Loser, Dexter (though he's done), Project Runway, RuPaul's Drag Race, The Long Island Medium, Storm Chasers, American Horror Story, The Amazing Race 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 Perfect Valentine’s Day Drink: The Vanity Cocktail

Go ahead.  Make fun of me.  All my friends do.  I can't stand the taste of beer.  I cannot stand scotch.  I absolutely hate whiskey (unless it's that new Fireball stuff which tastes like melted Red Hots and make my toes curl).  If I am going to drink, I am going to drink "girly" drinks.  There!  I said it.  I own it.  I am a lightweight and if an alcoholic beverage is going to penetrate these lips it better be fruity and fun.  If you think that the Vanity Cocktail looks as good as I think it does, keep reading.  Because I have the recipe . . .

What Would You Say if Chad Got You Arrested?

Uh oh!  You and I have been arrested.  Picture it.  We are in the back seat of a squad car, handcuffed, and you turn to me to say something . . . anything.  However, whatever you say can only contain FOUR words.  What are they?  This was our question last week on our Facebook Tad Poll and we received some hilarious responses.  Check out some of my favorites!

Would You Ride Sommerrodelbahn: Austria’s Crazy Alpine Coaster? [Video]

I love roller coasters.  The Voyage at Holiday World.  The Beast at King's Island.  Desperado in Primm, Nevada.  And I would be all over this!  Have you seen the Sommerrodelbahn?  It's an alpine coaster in Mieders, Austria that has absolutely NO brakes.  It begins at the top of a mountain and doesn't end until it reaches the bottom . . . nearly 4 minutes after the ride begins.   Look at this thing!

He's going to be so mad at me.  And he deserves it.  Over the weekend, WBKR afternoon drive guy Dave Spencer (a.k.a. Jerkface) posted the horrifying trailer for a new movie called Clown.  Well, it's time for revenge!  Yes.  I hate clowns.  But Dave Spencer HATES large rabbits.  And my friend Jason VanDiver just posted a photo of one of the scariest bunnies I have ever seen.  Look what he found on Pinterest!  Dave Spencer is going to mess his pants when he sees this photo.  It is DISTURBING!!
