Fundraiser for Rollie Pike May 18th in Whitesville

If you've ever tuned in for the final stretch of our annual St. Jude Radiothon you have more than likely heard our good friend Rollie Pike.  Rollie, who way back in the day won our 5th season of Goldie's Survivor, has become a true friend to WBKR-FM.  Personally speaking, Rollie is a great friend of mine and truly one of my favorite people on this planet.  And that is no exaggeration.  I simply cannot put into words what I think of Rollie and how much he means to me on a personal level.  This guy is incredible.  But I can say this . . . easily.  Rollie is one the most kindhearted and giving people you will ever encounter.  He never hesitates to lend a helping hand and is one those rare guys who will be there you when call, every time you call.  Unfortunately, as fate would have it, Rollie's now in need of help himself.

St. Wendel Third Graders Raise Money for St. Jude [Video]

Last Friday, I drove to Wadesville, IN to visit the 3rd grade class at St. Wendel Catholic School.  My friend Ryan Nowak teaches there and he asked me to come by and talk to his students about St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.  See, his students are doing a service project and, for it, chose to raise money for the patients of St. Jude.  I decided to share some of my favorite St. Jude stories with the students and introduce them to some of my favorite St. Jude families.  I knew this was a great way to show them the importance of what they're doing and how important raising money for the hospital truly is.  Well, guess what?  These 3rd grade rockstars got amped up and they went to the big Friday night fish fry with buckets in hand!

Jeanna & Ella Dreamer: The St. Jude Video & Song

We first introduced you to Jeanna and Ella Dreamer two years ago during WBKR's St. Jude Radiothon.  And, you'll likely recall, they were the inspirations behind our 2012 St. Jude song "Dreamer."  This year, we decided to put faces with the names for you and make an official video for our original song.  Check this out!  It's moving, powerful and yet more testament as to why you should become a St. Jude Partner-In-Hope.

The Official Video for “Thumbs Up” [Video]

His story truly inspired the world.  And, late last year, when Lane Goodwin's "Thumbs Up" craze spread like wildfire through the digital landscape, I think every single person who heard his story was inspired.  I know that I was.  And I decided that Lane was the perfect inspiration for this year's original St. Jude song.
