The 2011 WBKR/Halloween Havoc Road War is in the books!  Congratulations to our grand prize winners TEAM COLEMAN (Tim Coleman, Robert McKay, and Jeremy Mayfield) who mastered the course (they were just one-tenth of a mile off) and claimed our $1,000.00 purse!  The course, as always, was mind-boggling and frustrating and sent teams through scary twists, turns and challenges!  As usual, some teams dropped out along the way, but the majority plowed through to the finish!  If you competed in the Road War and wanna know which roads you SHOULD have taken, read on!  If you're curious how the Road War works, you read on too!  And join us in 2012 for another edition of the "scariest road trip in town!"

The Jason Koger “Look Ma! No Hands” T-Shirt Challenge

This morning on The WBKR Waking Crew, we talked with my good buddy, Jason Koger, who issued a challenge to all of our WBKR listeners.  As some of you know, Jason lost both of his forearms and hands in a freak accident three-and-a-half years ago.  If you've seen Jason out and about since then, you may have seen him wearing his favorite t-shirt which says, "Look, ma!  No hands!"  Well, Jason has decided that he needs a new shirt and, after soliciting suggestions from his Facebook friends last night, gave us a call this morning to ask for our help!
