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!

Jaclyn Rides the HAMSTER BALLS! [Video]

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!

Chad: “I Think One Of My Friends Is A Hoarder!”

Have you ever watched that show on A&E called Hoarders?  It features EXTREME stories about obsessive-compulsive types who NEVER throw anything away.  Their homes become little mini-landfills . . . full of trash, totes, piles of clothing, food wrappers and, in some cases, animal hair and gunk!  The show is gnarly and I never in a million years thought I would find myself in the home of a real-life hoarder.  That is until this past weekend, when I visited a dear friend of mine (who's going to take a hit out me for publishing this) and found out his "dirty" little secret.  Yes, I think I know a hoarder.

Chad’s Ky State Fair Photo Gallery!

Last Thursday, I continued one of my favorite annual WBKR traditions!  I headed up to Louisville to broadcast live, all day, from opening day at the Kentucky State Fair!  This year, I was able to do things I have never done at the fair before and it was all caught on camera!   YES!!  I got to feed a rabbit chocolate Chex Mix, steal a sash from a beauty queen and learn how to milk a goat named Peace!  It was a fun-filled day and I loved every minute of it!  (Well, except for that scary moment when I almost submerged my right flip-flop into a big, steamy cow patty!)  Check out my photos!  (But don't worry!  I'll leave out the big, steamy cow patty!)
