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.

Do You Get Random Catalogs in the Mail Too?

This is so bizarre.  And I know I cannot be alone in this.  Do you get random catalogs delivered to you by the U.S. Postal Service.  Catalogs that are addressed to you but have absolutely nothing in them that appeals to you?  This happens to me ALL the time and, just last week, I got the most bizarre catalog from a company that I had never heard of.

Remembering Prince- His Five Greatest Songs

I was a HUGE Prince fan.  Seriously.  In the mid 80's, I went to a flea market at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center in Louisville and I bought a poster of Prince that was shellacked onto a piece of wood.  It was horrendous, but I loved it.  Because I loved Prince.  And I, like the rest of the world, is mourning the loss of this brilliant musician today.  For my taste, Prince has given us some of the best songs in the history of pop/rock.
