Chadwick Benefield

Chad here! After 11 years of being one half of The WBKR Waking Crew and The CB Radio Show, I am now one half of the all-new Morning Drive on 92.5 with Chad & Angel. Our show runs 6a-10am 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 and reality television. When I am not working I am likely on the sectional watching America's Got Talent, 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. I live in Owensboro with Kevin, Dolly, Ellie and a cat named Oprah.

Did You Know There are Hundreds of Kit Kat Flavors in Japan? [Video]

Normally, I am all about breaking me off a piece of a Kit Kat bar.  But, some of these flavors are NASTY!  Did you know that Japan is home to literally hundreds of flavors of Kit Kat bars?  And the flavors are all over the place: wasabi (ugh), lemon vinegar (wretch) and adzuki bean sandwich (let me hurl my face off).  Here's what happens when you take some unsuspecting Americans (who know that the Kit Kat is supposed to chocolate) and give them some random Japanese flavors to try.  This is pretty hilarious and pretty gross.

Amazing National Anthem Performance at Lincoln Memorial [Video]

Some of you have likely seen this, but I just stumbled across it on Twitter over the weekend and was completely blown away.  And, for me, the timing was perfect.  Colin Kaepernick is making news for not standing during "The Star-Spangled Banner" and, quite frankly, I'm over it.  Rather than talking about him, I'd rather spend my time celebrating astonishing anthem performances like this.  Star Swain was visiting the Lincoln Memorial and her friends encouraged her to belt out an impromptu version of the anthem and she absolutely schooled it.  Virtually very single tourist at the site stopped in their tracks and stood at attention.  It was awesome!
