ROCK 'N ROLL INTRIGUE
After the story ran of my meeting Linda Ronstadt in Louisville I received an intriguing email from WBKR listener Glenn Hodges. He took notice of the date of my Ronstadt encounter and recalled attending a concert which turned out to be that same year. Glenn wrote, “
It's a big weekend for racing here on the country station Sunday. First, at 10 a.m., it's the Indianapolis 500 -- the world's largest single-day sporting event. Then, the Coca Cola 600 at 4 p.m. More about that elsewhere on wbkr
One week from tonight. Six awesome musical acts. One stage. Here at WBKR, we are VERY excited about The Six Pack! It's a brand new concert we're having at Diamond Lake's Good Time Theatre on Friday, May 31st. The show will feature some of the best local and regional talent around and will hosted by our very own, Jaclyn Graves. And she'll be joined by Insulated, Katie Beste, Skylar Cain, Daniel Epperson, and Butler County's Kyle Whitaker. I first met Kyle when he joined us this year for our St. Jude Radiothon. This guy is GREAT! Check him out . . .
It was May 25, 1970, when I met Linda Ronstadt. Freedom Hall, Louisville, Kentucky. Linda opened for Arlo Guthrie. While he performed the medley of his hit, leaving my wife (also named Linda) and friends in their seats, I traipsed backstage and caught up with the lovely Linda who was so nice to me. Dre

Just when you thought you couldn't win in our Nationwide Win Cash game, Evansville's Debbie Jackson scores $1000.00. She heard "Money Boo-Boo"'s cue to call and started dialing 1-877-854-WINS (9467). S
As we learned from Rip Torn in the movie Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, "If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball! If you can dodge traffic, you can dodge a ball." But as we learned from our new WBKR intern, Jordan Roos, you can't dodge a DOZEN balls being launched by the 3rd graders at St. Wendel Catholic School in Wadesville, Indiana. This is brutal! LOL! And you have to watch. Jordan never stood a chance!
A classmate of mine vomiting during the ceremony. That's what I remember most about my high school graduation. A fellow Daviess County High School senior, who shall remain nameless, was power-puking during graduation because she had gotten hammered shortly before all the pomp and circumstance began. As soon as I heard the heaving, I was immediately glad that my last name started with a "B" and she was rows and rows back in the latter half of the alphabet! But, I suppose if motivational speaker Josh Shipp had delivered THIS speech in front of the Daviess County High School Class of '89, I would have remembered it the most. This is incredible, honest, funny and, most of all, right on the money. If you know someone in the Class of 2013, someone about to begin their quest to make a mark on the world, make them watch this video!
