“Lone Survivor” Movie Trailer [VIDEO]

Chad and I had the honor of hearing Marcus Luttrell speak during one of our trips to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. No, Marcus isn't a child with cancer, nor does he have one. Marcus, a US Navy SEAL, is the only survivor of Operation Red Wing. Neither of us will ever forget being on the edge of our seats, listening to him tell the horrifying story of that day and the days following.

Lone Survivor is an upcoming movie about Operation Red Wing. I encourage you to watch this trailer and to learn more about Marcus. He is a true American hero and I will always be grateful for Marcus and other men and women of our great military who protect us by sacrificing themselves.

Newcomer Jon Pardi’s “Up All Night” [VIDEO]

I've been a fan of country newcomer Jon Pardi since Chad and I had the pleasure of meeting him at a conference in Memphis for St. Jude a few years back. He was such a down-home, sweet, handsome county boy and just seemed like a really nice guy!

Well, his second single, "Up All Night" is becoming one of my new favs! Check out this fun video and I think you'll love it too!

Lightning Storm Hits Tri-State [Photos]

Remember the old disco song "Knock On Wood?"  Well, it was like "thunder and lightning" last night in parts of the tri-state as random severe thunderstorms blew in.  They brought with them some very impressive lightning and some of my Facebook friends were outside with their phones and cameras aimed at the sky to capture some "electric" moments.  And some of them did.  Check this out!

The St. Wendel Catholic School/WBKR Egg Toss Game [Video]

A couple of weeks ago, Jaclyn and I went to St. Wendel Catholic School to collect the $3,800.00 Mr. Ryan Nowak's 3rd grade class raised for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  But, our trip wasn't all business.  In fact, we challenged the kids to a pretty serious game of egg toss that unfolded with all the intensity of a riveting sports drama and Olympic pursuit.  Check this out!

Former Goldie’s Survivor Champion Michael Woosley Releases New Song [Video]

Here at WBKR, we get asked all the time about Goldie's Survivor, our long-running talent contest at Goldie's.  It was a blend of Survivor and American Idol and hundreds of folks each year battled to try and make the 10-week finals.  The contest was basically reality television on stage and the show sold out virtually every week due to equal parts of talent and on-stage drama.  We often get asked how our former champions are doing.  Season Two champion Teresa Cook continues to make fans as Kizzy.  Season Three champion Shannon Sellers lives in Nashville now.  Season Five champion Rollie Pike later went on to win the Battle for The Big O and is with us each year for our St. Jude Radiothon.  And, now, we're hearing from Season 6 champion Michael Woosley, who just released a new duet called "Watch Me."  Check it out!

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.
