Chad’s “Ship on a Stick” [VIDEO]

 

By now, y'all should know that Chad and I are hosting a Cruise With A DJ, Fall Break 2015! We are heading out on the Carnival Elation, with two stops in Mexico and we couldn't be more excited! I've never been on a cruise and Chad has been on several, so he's my fearless leader for this trip. From the beginning of our planning process for the cruise (proudly brought to you by Henderson Chevy Buick GMC), he just keeps talking about his "Ship on a Stick". He decided to bring in his trophies and explain how he got them... I'm less than impressed.

Take a look!

The Barb Crashes After the Eric Church Concert [Photos]

One second she was talking a mile a minute about how awesome Eric Church was in concert and how hot she thinks he is.  The next second she literally crashed and burned!  That's precisely the effect a 4-hour concert, 4 extra large draft beers and a dark Audubon Parkway have on WBKR's Barb Birgy.  Seriously, on the way home from The Ford Center Saturday night, we truly lost The Barb!  And we have the photos, in chronological order, to prove it.
