Jaclyn Graves Parks SUV In A Tree!

All you have to do to know that Jaclyn Graves is a little crazy is tune into her each weekday from 9am to 2pm here on WBKR.  Now, Jaclyn is one of my very best friends and I, because I have a long list of them as well, love all of her zany quirks.  I know things about her even her husband and "lady" doctor don't know.  So, I feel like I need to share some of those secrets with YOU!  One thing you may not know about Jaclyn is that she is ALWAYS late!  I used to think that Dave Spencer wrote the book on driving into the parking lot at 92 miles an hour because he was going to miss the start of his airshift!  That is until I witnessed the day Jaclyn zipped into the parking lot (like she's freaking Danica Patrick) and rammed her GMC Acadia up in the middle of a tree!

B. Dawn Kadonk: Roller Derby’s Double-Zero Hero!

The Destruction Dames and Dynamite Dolls have been visiting Moon and me for a couple of years now!  We love when they come to studio to hang out with us and chat about their upcoming bouts!  We've had visits from Godjilla, Chas D. Belt, Megan M. Hurt, Steff U, Latin Shover and more!  One gal who almost always stops by is B. Dawn Kadonk.  She can tear into a sportscast like none other and, according to her teammates, she can tear into an opponent on the roller derby track as well.  I thought I would sit down with B. Dawn and find out how she landed in the rock 'em, sock 'em, crazy world of roller derby!

I’m Only Two Degrees Separated From Howie Mandel!

You've heard about the Six Degrees of Separation, right?  It's a theory that everyone on Earth is separated by just six degrees or less.  Basically it works like this.  As an example . . . we'll see how may degrees separate me from. . . let's say . . . Gwyneth Paltrow.  I, of course, know Jaclyn Graves.  Jaclyn knows Blake Shelton.  Blake Shelton is good buddies with Cee Lo Green!  And Cee Lo Green performed with Gwyneth Paltrow on The Grammys!   OMG!!  I'm just FOUR degrees separated from Gwyneth Paltrow!  (And just FIVE from Coldplay!)  Now, thanks to an old college friend of mine, I'm just TWO degrees separated from HOWIE MANDEL!

The 14th Annual TREK Huge Success!!

It takes something special to get me out of bed at 5:30am on a Sunday morning.  I spend Monday through Friday waking up at the "behind" crack of dawn, so I like to sleep in on the weekend if I can!  But on Sunday, I pried myself out of my bed and away from my body pillow for something VERY special!  I ventured down to the riverfront in Calhoun to emcee the opening ceremonies of the 14th Annual TREK to benefit the St. Joseph's Peace Mission for Children.  Hundreds joined to bike, walk and run the 13-mile TREK from Calhoun to David Yewell's house on Hwy 56 in West Louisville.  Along the TREK, I caught up with and walked alongside David, the man who dreamed this event years ago and continues to enjoy its growth and success!   In the video, David shares memories of his very first TREK, his thoughts about its evolution, and his commitment to the Peace Mission.

The Chad Vs. Pizza Challenge

Last week, I had a remote at A PIZZA PALACE on Emory Drive in Owensboro.  The owner of the restaurant, Adam, thought it would be a good idea to have a CHAD vs. PIZZA challenge while I was there.  Now, my friends will tell you that I can flat out throw back some food.  When we go to dinner, I will eat off other people's plates after I am finished with mine.  Not kidding.  But THIS pizza was no ordinary pizza.  It was a 16-inch PIZZA PIE that weighed over 7 pounds!  It's cooked like a pie, stuffed with mozarella and provolone cheeses and the toppings you ask for!  Of course, like an idiot, I ordered pepperoni, bacon, ham and ONIONS (Wth???)!!   But my tapeworm and I were ready!  (And, yes, I have a tapeworm, or at least I pretend to so I have an excuse for being able to eat so much!)  Let the "challenge" begin!!!

Jaclyn’s Got Her “Bowl” Goggles On!

In case you haven't figured this out . . . Jaclyn is, for all practical purposes, a dumb blonde.  Of course, she's naturally a brunette, so I suppose it's fair to say she's a dumb brunette who aspires to be a dumb blonde.  Tuesday morning, she went to the restroom at The Grand Ole Opry and was "attacked" by an automatic toilet.  In her words . . . "it had a very aggressive premature automatic flush and it flushed three times before I had my pants off!"  Apparently, the gravitational pull of the toilet bowl was so strong, it yanked Jaclyn's sunglasses off her head and into the bowl.  (Sidebar:  As I am typing this, Jaclyn just walked up and said to me, "You wanna know why I don't wear rompers?"  To which I replied, "Jaclyn, I don't know what rompers are.)  And . . . now we're back to the story.  Picture it.  Nashville.  June 7th, 2011.  Jaclyn's sunglasses are floating in a public toilet.  Check that!  According to the midday genius,  the sunglasses were being sucked and swirled into the depths of the bowl hole.

Children Of The Cornhole!

Two years ago at the Opry Plaza Party to kick off the CMA Music Festival, Jaclyn was 18 months pregnant.  In fact, I'm pretty certain that Carsyn was crowning here at the show that made country music famous.  See, Jaclyn and I brought cornhole boards down to Nashville and challenged folks to a little "friendly" competition.  Despite the fact that Jaclyn's stomach looked like something out of the movie Alien, we were amazing.  We played all day long and only lost TWICE!!!  We are MASTERS of this game . . . or so we thought!

Best Places to Take Your Dog in Owensboro – Wilma’s Top Five

For those of you who know me, you know that I love animals and basically claim to be Ace Ventura. All of my pets are rescues and I am currently proud papa to 2 dogs and 1 cat.  Dolly is a Bichon Frise who is ALWAYS up in a brother's grill.  My cat, Oprah, is deaf (which probably comes in rather handy.  My dogs are obnoxious and, let's be honest, I wrote the book on boisterous).  And Wilma is my rescued standard schnauzer with separation anxiety and a wide variety of other mental health disorders.  I don't really know much about where Wilma came from.  She's a strikingly beautiful pooch . . . but a total basket case.  I like to refer to her as Kibbles and Fits!  To give you guys a sneak peak into the life of one of my neurotic four-pawed children, I decided to share with you WILMA'S FIVE FAVORITE PLACES TO GO!

As you guys know, Holiday World is #1 for family fun!  But I'm not sure I have ever had as much fun as I did last week when I took Sam the Intern over to Santa Claus and cut him loose at Holiday World!  We rode roller coasters, the bumper cars, the Liberty Launch and even had time to take in a friendly (or not-so friendly) game of Skee Ball!  And, the best part of it all, WE HAVE VIDEO!!!  Ladies and gents, I present to you . . . Sam's Safari to Holiday World!  Fasten your seatbelt (I had to!).  It was a bumpy ride!  LOL!
