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.

Clay-Dough: A Homemade Play-Doh Recipe

My great nephew Caiden LOVES Play-Doh!  It must run in the family because, when I was a kid, I loved it too.  We had Play-Doh, the Play-Doh Mop Top Barber Shop, where the Play-Doh would crank out of the plastic figure's head and then you could cut and style the Play-Doh hair.  LOVED IT!  In fact, my sisters and I loved Play-Doh so much that my mother actually used to make it for us.  Yep!  Homemade.  Well, okay.  It wasn't actual Play-Doh.  She called it "Clay-Dough."  But you know what?  It worked just the same.  Here's the actual recipe from my mother's recipe box.

Controversial Sex Education Magazine Removed From Daviess County Public Schools

I'll be very frank.  We didn't have much sex education when I was in school.  In fact, most of mine came from a brochure my mother gave me.  That pamphlet, if my memory serves me correctly, was compiled by Dear Abby (or someone like her) and it was full of misinformation.  Looking back now, I'm really glad I ignored much of what I read.  First of all, I would be completely self-loathing and I wouldn't have had an ounce of fun in college.  Just saying.  Yes, I'm making a joke to make a point and that point is actually serious. The sex education debate still rages on and it surfaced once again just days ago in the Daviess County School System.

The 2015 LIT Cheer Tournament: Jump & Tumbling Competition [Video]

This was so much fun that I had to share it with you guys.  A couple of weeks ago, I was at Valley High School in Louisville to emcee the 2015 LIT Cheer Competition.  I have emceed a ton of dance competitions, but this was my first cheer tournament and I didn't really know what to expect.  I knew the competition would be fun to announce and fun to watch, but I had no idea it was going to be like this.  It was rowdy, thrilling and jaw-dropping.  You have to check out these videos!  At the end of the team competition, there was an individual Jump & Tumbling Competition.  The contestants were awesome and the crowd was going nuts!

Moonlite Bar-B-Q Hosting Taylor Swift Video Shoot Sunday

A couple of weeks ago, we introduced you to self-proclaimed Swiftie, Hannah Hawkins.  She's the Moonlite Bar-B-Q employee who is trying to get Taylor Swift to visit Owensboro for some world famous barbecue.  Hannah has already set up an online petition which has landed her on radio and television.  And, we fully believe, that petition has snagged the attention of Scott Borchetta, who owns Taylor's record label, and Taylor Swift herself.  Well, now, this Sunday, Hannah is calling on you to help with the next step.  She's filming a video parody of Taylor's hit single "Shake it Off" and she wants YOU to be in it!
