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.

The Post Pudding War Shower: Jaclyn Graves Meets Paris Hilton [Video]

She's gonna slash our tires and buy voodoo dolls that look like us!  LOL!  As you know, here at WBKR, Jaclyn and I recently revived our game of War.  And, this year, instead of with water or eggs, we played with cups of pudding.  And, thankfully, for the first time ever, I won and Jaclyn lost!  And she was COVERED from head to toe in pudding and had to be hosed off.  Well, we filmed it, slowed down the footage and turned Jaclyn's garden-hose shower into a Paris Hilton commercial.  This is hilarious!  And she's going to destroy us when she gets back from vacation.  Enjoy!

Ale-8-One Makes List of Top Regional Soft Drinks [Video]

I remember the first time I ever tried an Ale-8-One.  I honestly had never heard of it until I attended college at Kentucky Wesleyan.  One of my fraternity brothers, Brian Beck, LOVED it!  And he always a had a supply of it in his dorm room.  He was basically an Ale 8 hoarder. See, Brian was from Winchester, Kentucky, where Ale-8-One is bottled.  And I remember some friends of mine and I heading up to Winchester to spend the weekend at his house.  There were two highlights that weekend: his mother's homemade pasta sauce (which was so insanely good that I still remember it 25 years later) and our drive-by of Ale-8-One. All I can say about Ale 8 is that it packs quite a punch and it's made Mental Floss' list of The Top Regional Soft Drinks!

Aunt Mary’s Coconut Cream Pie [Recipe]

As you all know, here at WBKR we recently lost our beloved Aunt Mary.  Aunt Mary was famous for three things really: her love/lust for Alan Jackson (lol), her New Year's Eve shows with Steve Horn, and her cooking.  Aunt Mary spoiled us with chess bars, banana bread, and her world famous Coconut Cream Pies, which, by the way, Moon used to steal and take home so he wouldn't have to share any with the rest of us.  At Aunt Mary's funeral, I asked some of her family members if they would share some of her recipes with me so that I could share them with you guys.  See Aunt Mary is always gonna be with us in spirit here at the station and in the kitchen.  And you'll know what I mean when you try her recipe for Coconut Cream Pie.  Check this out!
