Here's the deal, I thought it would be cool for y'all to ask them some questions too! Take this poll and let me know what we should drill LoCash about!

Go Behind The Scenes of WBKR Contest! [Video]

Here at WBKR, we LOVE giving away prizes.  But, we've always wondered what it must be like to be on YOUR side of the contest.  We constantly hear listeners say things like, "I never win anything" or "It's nearly impossible to get through on the phone" or "The phones ALWAYS busy!"  So, Taunya the Intern and I decided to try a little experiment recently.  We ran a contest during the morning show and asked for Caller #92.  While I answered the phones to try and get a winner, Taunya got her cell phone and tried to win!  And we had cameras rolling.  So, just how difficult is it to get through??  WATCH!  And you'll see both sides of the contest!!  This is a FIRST-EVER behind-the-scenes glimpse into a real WBKR prize giveaway.

Meet Dakota Cummins: Battle for the Big O Finalist #6 [Video]

In late June, Dakota Cummins and Eddie Goins were in Owensboro for ROMP.  During their trip they happened to stop by Towne Square Mall at the same time we were setting up for our final Battle for the Big O audition.  Eddie came over to me and asked what was going on.  He saw the stage, the sound equipment and the judges' table, so he knew something was up.  I explained to him that we were searching for an act to open the 2012 Big O Music Fest starring Blake Shelton.  So, Eddie quickly turned to Dakota and said, "Wanna go back to the hotel and get your mandolin?"  Dakota said, "Sure."  And we're sure glad they did!  Check this out!  AMAZING!!

LoCash Cowboys Get Tattoos Honoring Their Keith Urban Hit ‘You Gonna Fly’

Even before Keith Urban took ‘You Gonna Fly’ to the top of the charts, the LoCash Cowboys — who co-wrote the tune with Jaren Johnston — had an idea for what kind of tattoo they would get should the song go to No. 1. When that dream became a reality, it was time to get inked.
