David Ball To Appear at Casino Aztar’s ‘Hoosiers Lounge’ This Weekend [VIDEO]

Yes, I admit, I had a thinkin' problem. Because, in 1994, when David Ball's "Thinkin' Problem" was released, I didn't THINK something that traditionally country would make it on the early 90s airwaves. Boy, was I wrong--to the tune of more than a million singles sold. And that's back when you had to actually go to a music store and buy the single. Now, I'm thinkin' he'll have quite a few fans arrive for his free shows this Friday and Saturday at the Hoosiers Lounge at Casino Aztar.

Dave Spencer Recalls Some “Haunting” Experiences

This week, I've been giving away tickets to the Old Courthouse Catacombs and the House of Lecter in Evansville. And it made me start thinking about past haunted house experiences. I have visited many but, sad to say, most of them were not memorable. Three, however, stand out in my mind--and not necessarily because they were scary.

Taste of Country Video of the Day — Josh Thompson ‘Way Out Here’ [VIDEO]

I kept thinking, "When have I seen Josh Thompson recently?" It was driving me crazy. Then I remembered it wasn't as recent as I thought. He was at Woody's in Evansville in November of 2009; our very own Jaclyn Graves was the opening act. Josh is making a return visit to the Tri-State this Saturday at the Taste of Country Concert at Ellis Park. He'll join Josh Turner, Casey James from "American Idol," Glen Templeton, and Strait Laced for a great day of country music. Tickets are just $25 and available at the WBKR studios and at the gate. Buy early and avoid the lines.
