Computer Dave Discusses Microsoft’s End of Support of Windows XP

April 8th is an important day for computer owners (like me) who currently use Windows XP as their operating system. Effective TODAY, Microsoft no longer supports the system and will not be offering security updates.  Personally speaking, I only kinda understand what that means.  But, if you're trying the row the same boat I am, have no fear!  Local computer expert, Computer Dave, has the scoop on how your PC could be affected, the security risks you'll be exposed to and what you should do about it.  LISTEN!

Jac’s Band Wagon: Kip Moore [VIDEO]

Chad’s Guilty CD Pleasures Volume 1: Shaun Cassidy’s Greatest Hits

I have decided to begin a new column here at WBKR.com.  I'll be taking you deep inside my insane CD collection and plucking out random guilty pleasures.  Now, you'll likely make fun of me.  You will laugh.  You will be amazed (and ashamed) that I spent hard-earned money on some of this crap.  But I am proud of my collection and the rather bizarre selections found inside.  And in this, my very first Guilty Pleasures column, I proudly present Shaun Cassidy's Greatest Hits!  Oh, you're already laughing.  I see you!

What Happens to Your Body if You Stop Drinking Water? [Video]

I don't know how camels do it.  Seriously!  Because I drink water ALL the time.  In fact, when I eat dinner, I essentially take a drink of water after every single bite.  I can literally put back about 8 to 10 glasses on water in one meal at a restaurant.  In fact, it's long understood at some local joints, like the Briarpatch, that my waiter or waitress might as well just bring me my own pitcher.  And they do.  If I can't get enough to drink, I'll immediately start farting dust.  LOL!  Okay, so it's not really that drastic, but still.  So, why do our bodies need water?  And what happens to us if we don't get it?  Check out this video I found on YouTube.  It's fascinating and explains.
