Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive This Saturday

This is going to be a big weekend for food in Owensboro-Daviess County.  Friday and Saturday mark the International BBQ Festival downtown and thousands upon thousands of people (including this one) are going to be stuffing their faces with mutton, pork, chicken, funnel cakes and more.  But, Saturday morning, we are asking you to help those who just aren't as fortunate.  Hunger is a serious problem worldwide, but also right here in the tristate.  That's why Campbell Soup Company and the National Association of Letter Carriers are again teaming up for the Stamp Out Hunger Campaign.  This is the 21st year for the movement and you can help simply by placing a bag of food by your mailbox before your mail carrier arrives Saturday.  Here are the official details on how you can help.  It's quick and painless, but VERY rewarding!

Fundraiser for Rollie Pike May 18th in Whitesville

If you've ever tuned in for the final stretch of our annual St. Jude Radiothon you have more than likely heard our good friend Rollie Pike.  Rollie, who way back in the day won our 5th season of Goldie's Survivor, has become a true friend to WBKR-FM.  Personally speaking, Rollie is a great friend of mine and truly one of my favorite people on this planet.  And that is no exaggeration.  I simply cannot put into words what I think of Rollie and how much he means to me on a personal level.  This guy is incredible.  But I can say this . . . easily.  Rollie is one the most kindhearted and giving people you will ever encounter.  He never hesitates to lend a helping hand and is one those rare guys who will be there you when call, every time you call.  Unfortunately, as fate would have it, Rollie's now in need of help himself.
