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.

Local St. Jude patient Jennifer Rudd likes to pretend that she's shy.  But who is she kidding?  The kid's actually got a lot of talent and we are thrilled that she gives us occasional glimpses of it. Like this for instance.  It's Jennifer's latest YouTube video.  And, in it, she's taking on the song "Latch" by British vocal powerhouse Sam Smith.  And, you know what?  Jennifer kinda nails it.  WATCH!

WBKR’s Aunt Mary Passes Away at 86 [Photos]

She loved ringing in the New Year with Steve Horn.  She loved visiting The WBKR Waking Crew and hanging out in the studio with Moon and me.  She didn't mind us busting up into her yard sales and broadcasting live from her front yard.  She had a massive crush on Alan Jackson and, literally, had a shrine to him in her home.  And she made the best chess bars in the world.  We absolutely loved and adored Mary Catherine Bayles and are so sad to report our Aunt Mary has passed away at the age of 86.

Do you believe in love at first sight?  Lanetta Cotton does.  And she believes in it because she has experienced it.  And when it came time to tie the knot with her fiance Donald Ashby, she wanted to get married in the exact same place she met him for the first time.  And that place just happened to be the Walmart in Beaver Dam.

The Longest Volleyball Point Ever [Video]

This is crazy!  In fact, I am remembering back the days when Jaclyn and I played in the Owensboro Parks Department's recreational volleyball league.  We lasted just one season (we were awful).  Our goal was just to keep the ball in play and not hit each other in the back of the head or Marcia Brady each other in the nose.  THIS is insane. This point lasts for one minute and 45 seconds and features sixteen switches in the rally.  No wonder it holds a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest point ever.  WATCH!
