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.

Throwback Thursday: Spinach and Pink Rice at Thruston Elementary School

Here's a Throwback Thursday tribute to Thruston Elementary School and the school lunches we had there.  While we typically enjoyed what we got to eat at Thurston, not everyday was rainbows and rectangular pizza.  No!  Some days were just horrifying.  About once a month, we were served one of the nastiest combinations in the history of the food pyramid.  I think every single student who attended Thruston in the 70's and early 80's remembers this bizarre combination.
