Chad & Jaclyn Explain How the ROAD WAR Works! [Video]

The WBKR/Halloween Havoc Road War is Saturday, October 22nd!  And lots of teams will be on hand trying to conquer tha "scariest road trip in town" in an attempt to win the grand prize of $1,000.00!  The "road warriors" who have competed before know exactly what to expect from the event, but we have been getting alot of questions at the station from folks who are interested in doing it for the first time!  So, Jaclyn and I decided that we would climb in the WBKR van with some of the clues from the very first Halloween Havoc Road War and show you how it's done!  Watch as Jaclyn, who was loaded up on Benadryl by the way, tries to figure out the clues!  She'll show you how it's done!!

The HALLOWEEN HAVOC Photo Shoot w/ Jaclyn, Carsyn & Uncle Tad [Photos]

HALLOWEEN HAVOC is again the proud sponsor of our annual WBKR Road War, a city-wide, Halloween-themed  "scavenger hunt" that offers teams a chance to win $1,000!   Each year, for that event, Halloween Havoc outfits the WBKR staff so we can man (or woman) the checkpoints on the Road War course in style.  So, Jaclyn and I decided that we would go to the store and do a Halloween fashion show.  That way, you guys can see some of the awesome and scary costumes Halloween Havoc has to offer.  And, because I am a good uncle (or a glutton for punishment and torture) , I suggested that little Jaclyn Jr. (a.k.a. Carsyn) come along for the ride.  Well, little Rosemary's Baby was in quite a mood!

Chad & Jaclyn Drag Race in Motorized Shopping Carts! [Video]

Wednesday, Jaclyn and I celebrated Grocer's Day at Houchen's IGA on 25th Street in Owensboro.  In fact, there were American Cancer Society teams at every Houchen's location in the area selling pink ribbons for ACS' breast cancer research programs.  WBKR is a proud supporter of the American Cancer Society and its two primary fundraisers each year, Relay For Life and Making Strides.  So, naturally, Jaclyn and I volunteered to visit Houchen's and bag groceries for charity.  But, because we are the poster-children for ADHD, we got completely distracted and hotwired the motorized carts.  Let the drag race begin!!

THE X-FACTOR: Chad’s 5 Singers To Watch! [Video]

Forget what you've heard about the disappointing ratings.  Forget what you've heard about the decline of Simon Cowell's popularity!  As they say in England, it's all rubbish.  The X-Factor debuted on FOX a couple of weeks ago and is doing what talent shows on television are SUPPOSED to do!  (Sorry The Sing Off!  All your groups sound exactly alike to me!)  The show is finding talent and AMAZING talent at that.  The preliminary auditions are in the books and the remaining contestants are ready to suit up for boot camp.  All have the same goal in sight.  They want to battle their way to the LIVE shows, where YOU can vote for your favorites!  And, after watching the first few episodes, I am ready to share with you some of my personal favorites.  Keep an eye on these folks.  They truly have The X-Factor!

Chad and Jaclyn Interview THE AMAZING KRESKIN!

Even now, he KNOWS what you're thinking!  THE AMAZING KRESKIN is coming to the RiverPark Center in downtown Owensboro on Sunday, October 9th!  Earlier this week, Jaclyn and I had the chance to chat with Kreskin about his show and what he has in store for us.  In addition to being one the nation's most famous "mentalists," Kreskin is really cool and was a total blast to meet and chat with.  Take a listen as he explains one of the staples of his show!  Yep!  This man is so confident in his ability to read minds, he lets members of the audience hide his paycheck.  Then, by diving deep into their minds, HE FINDS IT!

Why Isn’t KIZZY on “Dancing With The Stars?”

Monday night, the newest cast of Dancing With The Stars strutted its stuff for the first time this season.  And viewers were probably left wondering how Elisabetta Canalis (better known as "George Clooney's ex-girlfriend) made it on the show.  Is she really a "star?"  One viewer who was definitely scratching her head . . . KIZZY from The WBKR Waking Crew.  In fact, she was fired up and called Chad and Moon this morning to voice her displeasure!  Or, as Kizzy would say, her "displeasurerer!"  Take a listen!

PUMPKINFEST is coming up this weekend at the Owensboro Sportscenter!  One of the most popular features of the festival each year is, most definitely, the HAMSTER BALLS!  And, Monday morning, those beloved BALLS made a stop at the WBKR studios during Jaclyn's midday show.  Naturally, we couldn't just have Jaclyn TALK about the HAMSTER BALLS!  No way!  We made her get inside one.  Ladies and gentlemen, this is what happens when you put a an airhead in an inflatable plastic ball.  Fasten your seatbelts and resist the urge to use the restroom in cedar chips.  Jaclyn Graves is a hamster!

Chad’s All Up In Your OPRY BACKSTAGE GRILL!

On Tuesday, I headed down to Nashville to broadcast live at The Grand Ole Opry.  It was a really special day at the Opry!  A star-studded line-up had gathered for George Jones' 80th birthday concert celebration.  The Oak Ridge Boys were there, Jamey Johnson, Alan Jackson, Pam Tillis and more were on hand to pay tribute to The Possum and I got the pleasure of listening to some of the rehearsal performances.  It was REALLY cool!  But, let's cut the small talk and get down to the business at hand!  Not only did I get to be backstage at The Opry, I got to head over to the OPRY BACKSTAGE GRILL and stuff my big ole face.  And, yes, I had a camera to capture every delicious bite!!

Uncle Tad Critiques Carsyn’s Recent Photo Shoot!

While I was on vacation, WBKR midday gal and my good friend, Jaclyn Graves, subjected her young 2-year-old daughter Carsyn to a grueling photo shoot in honor of her birthday.  Apparently, when you reach the Terrible 2's you are supposed to endure a photo layout for Elle magazine.  Now, Jaclyn will tell you that such photos are a rite of passage for female toddlers.  After all, she was raised by crazed pageant coach who was always looking over her right shoulder for the next Miss America.  I, on the other hand, question the emotional impact such a photo shoot has on the fragile psyche of young, sweet Carsyn.  I mean, look at her in the photo above.  She looks MISERABLE.  If she was Drew Barrymore in Firestarter, those bangs would be blowing in the wind right about now and that barn would be going up in flames!  Let's take a look at Carsyn's other photos from the shoot and see if we can learn some valuable life lessons or, at the very least, some necessary parenting skills.

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!
