It is hard to believe it's time for Owensboro's famous International Barbecue Festival. A week from Friday it opens and all the great barbecue aromas and thick, blinding smoke will waft through downtown. WBKR will be broadcasting from the event on both days. My favorite year was 2009. I was joined on the air by Kizzy and on the streets by lovely Mrs. Moon.
The Kentucky Derby is just around the corner, and most of us can't be there, but the Owensboro Symphony Alliance and Orchestra has the next best thing. The 3rd Annual Juleps and Jockeys is set for this Saturday, May 5th aka Derby Day 4pm-9pm at the Hines Center in Philpot.
The sidesplitting musical of farce love by Stephen Sondheim, set in Ancient Rome is coming to the Pangea Theatre via Back Alley Musicals beginning tonight at 6:30 with a opening night dinner theatre show. Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 at the door for all performances and there will be an extra charge for the dinner theater meal.
I was in Walgreen's while ago. I heard Katy Perry's song, "Part of Me," three times--THREE times--during a 15 minute trip. For starters, I don't even care for Katy Perry. But, what if I did? That's a pretty good question.

The above-average-to-comfortable temperatures we've experienced so far this spring have made nightly walks irresistible. So I've been power-driving the Skechers these last four weeks. It's been great. Load up the mobile, grab the ear buds, and hit the bricks. Thankfully, I failed to do that second part last night.
The excitement is building. All last week I gave away family 4-packs of passes to opening day at Kentucky Motor Speedway next Sunday, April 15th.. Now, get ready for more chances to win! Then get ready for all the excitement as racing returns to Whitesville at Kentucky Motor Speedway.
After leaving Pogue Chrysler yesterday evening, I decided to get a bite to eat before leaving Muhlenberg County. It had already gotten dark by the time I headed back up 431. Somewhere around South Carrollton, somebody got in behind me.
I'm sitting here in my bunker wondering when IT is going to happen. It is April 1st, after all. This is April Fool's Day. It's been too quiet. Something must be afoot. Oh, wait, it's Sunday. Mercifully, thankfully, it is Sunday.
