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.

Carnival Cruise Lines Wins Award for Groove for St. Jude [Video]

Cruise with a DJ is less than two months away and Jaclyn and I are working hard on our itinerary for our trip!  Over 150 WBKR listeners are joining us on the Carnival Elation as we set sail from New Orleans to Mexico.  One of the things we'll be doing on the ship, for sure, is Carnival's Groove for St. Jude!  On every single sailing, Carnival has a one hour dance party to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  As you all know, St. Jude is near and dear to our hearts and it's close to Carnival's too!  In fact, the cruise company just won a major fundraising award for its work for the hospital.

Purple Rain: The Five Best Versions of the One of Music’s Best Songs [Video]

Last week, Kelly Clarkson was in Prince's hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota and, appropriately, did a cover of "Purple Rain."  Well, that song, by Prince, is definitely in my all-time Top Ten list.  I absolutely love it and I get chills every single time I hear it.  So, Kelly's version inspired my to create a Top 5 list.  I mean, the song is thirty years old and has been covered by nearly everyone and I think I have heard just about every one.  So, here we go.  The Top Five Versions of "Purple Rain."

Card Lock: Are Thieves Scanning Credit Card Information? [Video]

Is this for real?  Over the weekend, I was being a good little American citizen and watching State of the Union with Jake Tapper on CNN.  And I caught this weird commercial during the break that looked like something out of that Will Smith movie Enemy of the StateCard Lock claims that identity thieves are walking by us in crowds and using scanners to lift credit card and bank information out of our wallets and our purses.  Have you seen this?
