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.

Join Chad and Jaclyn for Sweatin’ For St. Jude [Video]

Yep!  We're doing it again.  Last year, Jaclyn and I, to kick off our St. Jude fundraising season, spent 12 hours on side-by-side treadmills at the Owensboro Family YMCA!  And, one week from today, we are going to do it again.  Only this time, YOU can be part of the fun.  Don't worry.  You don't have to run 25 miles like Jaclyn's going to do.  And you certainly don't have to knock down a 50-miler like I will.  LOL!  But here's how you can hop on a treadmill and help us raise money.

WBKR Listeners Respond to Sex Education Blog

Earlier this week, I posted a blog about the removal of a controversial sex education blog from Daviess County Public Schools.  The magazine, J4G, was distributed to students by Care Net Pregnancy Center of Owensboro.  Care Net is contracted by the school system to present three-day "Sexual Integrity" courses in high schools in Daviess County.  As you will be able to see, some WBKR listeners are on board with the presentation.  Others are not.  Take a look at some of the responses our story generated.

Clay-Dough: A Homemade Play-Doh Recipe

My great nephew Caiden LOVES Play-Doh!  It must run in the family because, when I was a kid, I loved it too.  We had Play-Doh, the Play-Doh Mop Top Barber Shop, where the Play-Doh would crank out of the plastic figure's head and then you could cut and style the Play-Doh hair.  LOVED IT!  In fact, my sisters and I loved Play-Doh so much that my mother actually used to make it for us.  Yep!  Homemade.  Well, okay.  It wasn't actual Play-Doh.  She called it "Clay-Dough."  But you know what?  It worked just the same.  Here's the actual recipe from my mother's recipe box.

Controversial Sex Education Magazine Removed From Daviess County Public Schools

I'll be very frank.  We didn't have much sex education when I was in school.  In fact, most of mine came from a brochure my mother gave me.  That pamphlet, if my memory serves me correctly, was compiled by Dear Abby (or someone like her) and it was full of misinformation.  Looking back now, I'm really glad I ignored much of what I read.  First of all, I would be completely self-loathing and I wouldn't have had an ounce of fun in college.  Just saying.  Yes, I'm making a joke to make a point and that point is actually serious. The sex education debate still rages on and it surfaced once again just days ago in the Daviess County School System.
