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.

St. Wendel Third Graders Raise Money for St. Jude [Video]

Last Friday, I drove to Wadesville, IN to visit the 3rd grade class at St. Wendel Catholic School.  My friend Ryan Nowak teaches there and he asked me to come by and talk to his students about St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.  See, his students are doing a service project and, for it, chose to raise money for the patients of St. Jude.  I decided to share some of my favorite St. Jude stories with the students and introduce them to some of my favorite St. Jude families.  I knew this was a great way to show them the importance of what they're doing and how important raising money for the hospital truly is.  Well, guess what?  These 3rd grade rockstars got amped up and they went to the big Friday night fish fry with buckets in hand!
