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.

How Many Tornadoes Must We All Suffer? [VIDEO]

I mean, seriously, this unbelievable tornado season that has ravaged the midwest and the deep south seems to have no end. Last night, local television was interrupted with the news that more tornado warnings had been issued up in southeast Illinois. And they were moving toward the northeast, so nobody in the immediate area was in danger. And, to date, I haven't heard news of any significant damage. But head west a few states, and there's a different story.

John Berry Bringing Hope to Children’s Lives and His Show to Drakesboro

In addition to being a huge hitmaker--"Your Love Amazes Me", "Standing on the Edge of Goodbye", "What's In It for Me"--John Berry is simply one of the nicest people I've ever met. I had the privilege of introducing some of his shows when he would perform at the Executive Inn in downtown Owensboro. He and his beautiful wife, Robin, were always so accommodating to our staff and to the listeners who would win backstage meet-and-greet passes. So it came as no surprise to me when I learned of his charity work with an incredible organization called Compassion International.
