Big East Player of the Year, Jae Crowder, Has Owensboro Connection [VIDEO]

In any other year, if you were to hear the name of the Big East Player of the Year, and it wasn't a Louisville Cardinal, you'd likely pay no attention, whatsoever. But the 2012 winner is a different story, altogether.

Kentucky Tornadoes Bring Back Memories of Scary Sirens, Cigars, and Vanishing Kiwanians

The tornado (we think it was one) that blew past the WBKR studios on Friday afternoon took me back 12 years to 2000. That F3 tornado (we knew it was one) that ripped through Owensboro on January 3 created the exact same high-velocity visuals we saw just two days ago. Yes, Friday's storms took me back 12 years. The sirens took me back even farther.

Tornadic Storm Takes Out Signs Near WBKR Studios

We were listening to and watching the Eyewitness News severe weather coverage. It got windy, and then, very suddenly, horizontal rain and hail blasted the WBKR parking lot. Steve Horn's pickup truck moved sideways about 6 to 8 inches and filled up with ice pellets.

Owensboro on Youtube: River City Festival of Films Recap

Okay, so I'm a huge fan of Youtube. It's a quick fix for boredom. When, or if, I run out of things to do, watch, listen to, whatever, there's always Youtube. So, the other day while Youtubing, I just searched "Owensboro" and hit the jackpot. And then I thought, "I have a forum. Why not spotlight the occasional Owensboro-related Youtube video?" Answer: no reason.

You Scream, I Scream, We All Scream for…Barbeque

I am awarding WBKR Sales Manager Traci Davis the "Golden Smoke Pit." It's a hypothetical award because it doesn't physically exist; she'll never receive anything she can sit on her desk next to the computer. But anyone who brings in Old Hickory barbecue for lunch deserves SOMETHING. Even if it's mythical.

Conversation Threads: From Documentaries to Drill Sergeants to…Three Bean Salad?!?

 

This actually looks MUCH better than the slop I ate in 1972. (Gudlyf, Flickr.com) Let's see, how did it all begin? I was at the front desk today, chatting with Moon Mullins and Roxianne the Receptionist, and we began discussing fast food. This led to a mention of the Morgan Spurlock documentary "Super-Size Me" and the vague, if not a little dishonest, point it makes. Then came talk of the amazing and frightening documentary "Food, Inc." Then we segued to school lunches. Oh, yeah, now I remember...three bean salad.

Dave Spencer’s Favorites: The Cat, the Carburetor Fluid, and the Crazy Lady

My favorite pet when I was younger was our cat, Austin. We'd had dogs when I was a little kid, but only one of them ever took to me. And he was a great dog, but Austin ranks at the top. In fact, Austin acted like a dog--he'd come when you'd whistle. And he happens to be an integral part of one of my favorite stories.

Dave Spencer Is Searching for the Perfect Chocolate Milk

While I am drastically cutting back on my "sweets" intake for 2012, one weakness remains. And, actually, I can't really call it a weakness because it just provides me far too much joy. It's chocolate milk.
