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.

Randy Houser’s “Like A Cowboy” Live [Video]

Confession time from Chad!  There are plenty of songs about summer on the radio right now and we, naturally, are playing the heck out of all them.  But, for me, my absolute favorite song of the summer is a ballad.  Not only is Randy Houser's "Like A Cowboy" one of my favorite songs of the summer . . . it's one of my favorite songs in years.  And I was searching YouTube recently and came across this live performance he gave at the CMA Music Festival in June.  I think Randy has one of the BEST voices in country music and this live version will show you why.  He is flippin' awesome.  WATCH!

Computer Dave Destroys a Computer with Fireworks [Video]

My friend Computer Dave asked me if I thought there was any kind of commercial-grade firework that would destroy a computer.  See, he had a customer who was tired of a PC that was constantly giving him fits and decided to put the thing out its misery.  Well, I had a hunch that an Excalibur artillery shell would do the trick.  And, guess what?  It did!  WATCH!

How to Repair a Chinese Sky Lantern with a Band-Aid [Video]

Not kidding!  Some friends of mine and I were shooting off fireworks Saturday night and we decided to launch one of those Chinese Sky Lanterns.  Well, when we pulled it out of the package we noticed it had a slight tear in it and we were afraid it was going to work.  But my friend Fun Becky had a bright idea.  She said, "Why don't we put a Band-Aid on it?"  We thought she was kidding until she ran to her car and got one.  And, believe it or not, it actually worked!!  And we have the video to prove it.
