Chad & Jac Model Henderson Chevy’s Blind Auction for Christmas Wish [Video]

This is awesome!  Our buddy Mike Spurgeon, with Henderson Chevrolet Buick GMC, came to us earlier this year and told us the dealership really wanted to be a big part of Christmas Wish this year.  Not only has Henderson Chevy set up a Christmas Wish tree in their showroom (complete with 50 families up for adoption), they have also given us some amazing electronics for a "blind" auction inside the Christmas Wish office.  So, how does a "blind" auction work and what items do we have up for bid?  Jaclyn and I do our best impressions of Vanna White and Barker's Beauties to show you.  WATCH!

Chad Is NOT Going Bald

When I got to work this morning, I went straight into a production room to do a few things so I did not see this newspaper article and accompanying photo from the Messenger-Inquirer that had been taped to the door of the WBKR studio

Chad and Jaclyn Give You a Virtual Tour of Christmas Wish Office [Video]

The 35th annual WBKR/WOMI Telecom Pioneers Christmas Wish office is up and running at Towne Square Mall.  We are expecting a very busy year and we are already off to crazy start!  At the end of Day Two, we had received just under 400 letters and they continue to pour into the office.  We have lots of calls about how you can submit a letter to Christmas Wish, how to make donations, how to volunteer time, what kinds of supplies we need in the office and more.  So, Jaclyn and I decided to take you behind the scenes and try to answer your questions.  So, come on!  Let's take a tour of Christmas Wish right here at WBKR.com!

Jimmy Parrot’s in the Hancock County Clarion!

If you tune into The WBKR Waking Crew each weekday morning, you know exactly who Jimmy Parrot is!  He's the guy that calls 'Moose' and 'Tad' at 7:25am each day and pretends to be 14 WFIE news anchor Ann Komis, or a Charlie's Angel, or Wayne Hart!  Jimmy has become a b

The Worst “Ultimate Dirty Santa” Gift Ever! [Video]

WBKR's Ultimate "Dirty Santa" Party Saturday night was a blast!  Some folks, like Sharon Tucker (who snagged a Gaylord Opryland "Country Christmas" Vacation), won some pretty awesome gifts!  Others, like Barbara Grooms, got some pretty awful lumps of coal from Dirty Old Saint Nicholas!  Take a look at the video!  You won't believe what Barbara left the party with!

Chad & Jaclyn Get You “Wrapped Up” in Dirty Santa! [Video]

WBKR's Ultimate "Dirty Santa" Party is Saturday night at The Hines Center in Philpot!  And, the WBKR staff is getting ready for the big night!  In fact, for the last week, we've basically looked like Santa's elves because we have been wrapping 300 presents.  I'm pretty sure our receptionist Roxianne never cares if she sees a roll of wrapping paper or Scotch tape ever again.  But, Thursday afternoon, she got a little relief from Jaclyn, who decided that she would show off her mad gift-wrapping skills to the camera!

Chad Makes Jaclyn Eat A Sardine! [Video]

A couple of years back, Moon and I were dared to eat sardines live on the air.  And it didn't go really well.  Moon bought a can of sardines that were coated in mustard and they were gnarly!  Mine were coated in some kind of olive oil or sesame oil or peanut oil or motor oil!  Whatever it was, they were just as bad as Moon's!  But, we accepted the challenge, ate the sardines and paid for it the rest of the day.  We both smelled like the coast of Maine for about 24 hours.  So, we decided that it was time for Jaclyn to face her fears . . . and eat a nasty old sardine!

Chad & Moon Perform THE MONSTER MASH Live! [Audio]

Moon & I started a WBKR Waking Crew tradition a few Octobers back.  I love performing the THE MONSTER MASH and can't wait for Halloween to roll around because I get to do it for you guys on the air.  So, this morning, to get you ready for an awesome weekend full of Halloween events, I channeled my inner Bobby "Boris" Pickett and Moon summoned his inner Crypt-Kicker and we laid out a "graveyard smash!"  If you missed it, don't worry!  We've got the audio here at WBKR.com!  Enjoy!!
