Dave Spencer Shares Some Family Ghost Stories

I love ghost stories. And they're even better when they're a part of your family history. I've  heard a couple of the following ghost stories my whole life. Another is of a more recent vintage. And another, still, involved me personally. It's Halloween. Let's get to it.

Dave Spencer Tackles Giant Slide at Pogue Chrysler [VIDEO]

It's Customer Appreciation Days at Pogue Chrysler in Greenville. They're serving
barbecue sandwiches, hotdogs and hamburgers and they're absolutely free. Oh, I
forgot to mention the sliders. But that's a do-it-yourself arrangement, thanks
to the giant 18 foot inflatable slide

Head Colds Are No Picnic, But It Could Be (and Has Been) a Lot Worse

It's been a very busy day. The ladies from Shogun of Japan stopped by with lunch. Hitmaker Buddy Jewell stopped by with music. And yours truly had to take a breather on the couch. I'm getting over a head cold and I guess the exhaustion phase finally hit me. See, I don't make a good patient, which is why it's a good thing I'm rarely sick. But that doesn't mean I've always been the picture of health. There are a few very long weeks from my past I'd just as soon forget.

Dave Spencer Takes His First Hamster Ball Ride

I missed the hamster ball action last year! But not this year! I was determined to get in that thing. It was a lot of fun. When Chad showed me the hole I had to crawl into, I was like, "I can't get this big frame in there!" But I could, and I did

Attempted Michigan Robbery Has a Local Tie…Named Dave Spencer [VIDEO]

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I believe those rights are designated as unalienable. So, hopefully, when we exercise those rights, we won't be relieved of our duties. Let's take the argument to Michigan.

Dave Spencer Plays Monopoly Underwater at Dive Center Charity Event [VIDEO]

A few weeks ago I was taught how to dive by my friend, Danny Hinton, who is a divemaster at Blue Meridian Dive Center on Hwy 81 in Owensboro. Last Saturday, I got to exercise my newfound skills at the Center for a charity event called Underwater Monopoly--I'm the one in the white WBKR t-shirt. That's right, I got to pass "Go" and collect $200 several feet under water.

Dave Spencer Relives a Memorable Vacation Out West

When I get the chance, I try to plan my vacations around a very special goal I created for myself many years ago. That goal is to visit every state in the union. I made this decision after visiting California with my family as a teen. At the time, California seemed to be a mythical place where few people like me ever got to go. Hey, I was 14. So I thought, “If I can go to California, why not everywhere else?” And this year, I got to add a few more slices of “everywhere else” to my very own American pie.

WBKR Bowls For A Cure! [Video]

The 2011 Susan G. Komen Bowl for the Cure was held in Owensboro Thursday, August 4th and Friday, August 5th and, for the 3rd year in a row, WBKR was the presenting media sponsor for the event.  And, for the 3rd year in a row, the station sent teams to bowlers to Diamond Lanes South in the hopes 92.5 would be well represented in the land of strikes and spares.  Well, it didn't turn out that way!  You saw, in the video above, that Jaclyn was rolling an embarrassing 14 through four frames of her first game.  Could Chad, an accomplished "junior' bowler save the day and the station's reputation?  Uh . . . well, watch for yourself!

Move Over Jacques Cousteau, Dave Spencer Learns How to Scuba Dive

How often do you get to mark something off your bucket list? Well, last Saturday I got to do just that when I was taught how to scuba dive from Blue Meridian Dive Center divemaster Danny Hinton. I have always wanted to learn, and now I have. And it was just as big a blast as I thought it would be. I highly recommend it.

Dave Spencer Suffers Raccoon Harassment in Smokies

In one of my most recent posts, I alluded to a dislike of raccoons saying, "That's a story for another day." Well, today's the day. I think it may have all started on Highway 136 in McLean County four years ago. I had just emceed the Miss McLean County pageant and had to buzz Livermore before I came home. On the way, I hit a raccoon. The poor thing was kind of dumb; it saw me and started running but instead of diving off the road, it turned into the road and BAM! Kind of gruesome, I know, but not to worry, raccoon lovers! Paybacks are H-E-double hockey sticks! And I got mine three months later in the Great Smoky Mountains.
