Chad & I To Play “Water War”

Last night I couldn't sleep, so I turned on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. I've always been a big fan of his and wasn't disappointed in the show at all!

Mad Men star Jon Hamm was on the show and they played a game, Water War. After watching it, I just knew that Chad and I had to play this! Basically, they throw water in each others' faces! Take a look at the video from last night's show...

Jaclyn’s Studio Session of St. Jude Song “Dreamer”

Each year, for our St. Jude Radiothon, I write original music to honor the hospital and its patients and patients families.  This year's song is called "Dreamer" and is inspired by the story of Jeanna Dreamer and her young daughter, Ella, who is fighting a rare form of cancer that has resurfaced after a glorious six months in which Ella was cancer-free.  A couple of weeks ago, Jaclyn recorded the song at Gray Sky Music (with the help of our good buddy, Matt Gray) and we shot some footage!  Here's Jaclyn's studio session of "Dreamer!"

WBKR Takes the Polar Bear Plunge [Video]

The Polar Bear Plunge was Saturday morning at The Hines Center in Philpot.  And, for the second consecutive year, record crowds and participants turned out to raise money for and support Special Olympics Kentucky!  233 plungers walked the plank at the Hines Center lake and plunged into the chilly waters and, in doing so, they raised $55,000 . . . an all-time record for Owensboro's event.  As you know, Jaclyn and I encouraged listeners (and a couple of fellow deejays) to join us in the effort.  And, yep!!  We've got video!!

WBKR Surprises Listener/Stalker at U.S. Bank on Valentine’s Day [Video]

If you tune into The WBKR Waking Crew, you are likely quite familiar with our friend, Melissa.  Or rather, should I say . . . Meliiiiiiiiiissssssssaaaaaaa.  Just before Valentine's Day, I was contacted by Melissa's sister, who was itching to play a Valentine's Day prank on her sister.  See, Melissa's family always accuses her of being a WBKR stalker and they just happened to find a holiday card with the word "stalker" in it.  Naturally, they asked if we would make a surprise delivery and we said, "Heck to the yes!"  Watch!

Chad & Jaclyn Raid the North 40 Truck Stop! [Video]

A couple of years ago, Barb Birgy and I started the tradition of stopping at the North 40 Truck Stop en route to our annual St. Jude Country Cares Seminar.  See, that event is full of country music stars and participating radio stations can each bring an item to have autographed.   Well, in 2010, Barb and I realized that we had forgotten to get something in advance so we peeled into the North 40 parking lot and that truck stop came through for us . . . with an awesome cowboy hat!  So, we decided to make North 40 part of our annual routine.  This year, Jaclyn and I hit it up again and we struck gold!  WATCH!

A Very Carsyn Christmas: The Ugly Truth Exposed

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen.  And you THINK you know the precious daughter of WBKR midday gal, Jaclyn Graves.  But, since Christmas, I have seen seemingly "innocent" Christmas photos surface on Facebook and the web and I just cannot, in good conscience, sit in silence and pretend this child's Christmas was merry.  If you peer beyond the facade of the Kodak moments, you will see all the red flags and Biblical warnings.   Yes!  THIS is the REAL holiday story of the allegedly sweet, young Carsyn.  This is E! True Hollywood Story Carsyn Graves Cecil . . . written, produced and directed by Uncle Tad!

See WBKR Air Personalities Age Before Your Eyes

 

Photos by Dave Spencer I was watching a broadcast on one of the 24 hour news channels and the anchor was reporting about a woman who'd been missing for many years. And they put up a graphic showing what she'd look like today. They obviously had used some aging software for their purposes. I thought that was really cool and decided to Google "how will I look old." I came up with an awesome website--http://morph.cs.st-andrews.ac.uk/Transformer/. I then decided to have a little fun with some photos of the WBKR airstaff. Who do YOU think has the most authentic-looking age-enhanced photo?
