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.

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!

The Kat’s Meow: Final Chapter

Howdy, Gang!  Chad here.  I hope you've enjoyed my week-long interview series with our very own Music City U.S.A. gossip expert, Nashville Kat!  I have said this before (but it bears repeating) . . . I love this woman and the fact that we get to chat each weekday morning.  If you ask me, she is one of the BEST parts of The WBKR Waking Crew and one of my favorite people to work with.  I love chatting with her, getting the scoop and yucking it up!  And I hope you're loving it too and have enjoyed getting to know her in this interview!  So, here it is, our final installment.  Take a listen as Kat chats about music from the 80's, that tasty recipe book she's cooking up and her love of furry little critters . . .
