Are WBKR Listeners “Mean” To Taylor Swift?

It has happened!  Yep!  Taylor Swift now has more trophies at home than she does Barbies!  And Billboard is getting ready to present her with a huge honor in a special ceremony on December 2nd.  The magazine is naming Taylor its "Woman of the Year!"  At 21-years-old, Swift is the youngest woman ever to receive the award and she joins the likes of Reba McEntire, Beyonce and Fergie as ladies who've snagged that impressive honor.  There's no doubt about it.  Taylor Swift's success grows everyday!  But, this morning, in the WBKR Waking Crew's daily "TAD" POLL, we decided to see what our listeners think of Taylor.  And, to no one's surprise, people feel very strongly one way or the other and the opinions are split right down the middle.  Read what fans of The Country Station are saying . . .

Kizzy Has Questions For President Obama [Audio]

Yesterday, ABC News offered folks around the country to chance to email questions to be used for a sit down Q&A with President Barack Obama.  The live chat was hosted by George Stephanopoulos and our very own Kizzy tried her best to be heard during the forum.  But, it just didn't work out!  So, she called The WBKR Waking Crew this morning and shared her questions with us instead.  Take a listen!

Old Photos Bring Back Memories of a Scary Moment in ’95

October is here! It's the scariest month of the year. So how appropriate is it that I found old photographs that recall a very scary moment in WBKR history? Fasten your seat belts. (No pun intended...well, maybe a little.)

Why Isn’t KIZZY on “Dancing With The Stars?”

Monday night, the newest cast of Dancing With The Stars strutted its stuff for the first time this season.  And viewers were probably left wondering how Elisabetta Canalis (better known as "George Clooney's ex-girlfriend) made it on the show.  Is she really a "star?"  One viewer who was definitely scratching her head . . . KIZZY from The WBKR Waking Crew.  In fact, she was fired up and called Chad and Moon this morning to voice her displeasure!  Or, as Kizzy would say, her "displeasurerer!"  Take a listen!

PUMPKINFEST is coming up this weekend at the Owensboro Sportscenter!  One of the most popular features of the festival each year is, most definitely, the HAMSTER BALLS!  And, Monday morning, those beloved BALLS made a stop at the WBKR studios during Jaclyn's midday show.  Naturally, we couldn't just have Jaclyn TALK about the HAMSTER BALLS!  No way!  We made her get inside one.  Ladies and gentlemen, this is what happens when you put a an airhead in an inflatable plastic ball.  Fasten your seatbelts and resist the urge to use the restroom in cedar chips.  Jaclyn Graves is a hamster!

Chad’s All Up In Your OPRY BACKSTAGE GRILL!

On Tuesday, I headed down to Nashville to broadcast live at The Grand Ole Opry.  It was a really special day at the Opry!  A star-studded line-up had gathered for George Jones' 80th birthday concert celebration.  The Oak Ridge Boys were there, Jamey Johnson, Alan Jackson, Pam Tillis and more were on hand to pay tribute to The Possum and I got the pleasure of listening to some of the rehearsal performances.  It was REALLY cool!  But, let's cut the small talk and get down to the business at hand!  Not only did I get to be backstage at The Opry, I got to head over to the OPRY BACKSTAGE GRILL and stuff my big ole face.  And, yes, I had a camera to capture every delicious bite!!

Uncle Tad Critiques Carsyn’s Recent Photo Shoot!

While I was on vacation, WBKR midday gal and my good friend, Jaclyn Graves, subjected her young 2-year-old daughter Carsyn to a grueling photo shoot in honor of her birthday.  Apparently, when you reach the Terrible 2's you are supposed to endure a photo layout for Elle magazine.  Now, Jaclyn will tell you that such photos are a rite of passage for female toddlers.  After all, she was raised by crazed pageant coach who was always looking over her right shoulder for the next Miss America.  I, on the other hand, question the emotional impact such a photo shoot has on the fragile psyche of young, sweet Carsyn.  I mean, look at her in the photo above.  She looks MISERABLE.  If she was Drew Barrymore in Firestarter, those bangs would be blowing in the wind right about now and that barn would be going up in flames!  Let's take a look at Carsyn's other photos from the shoot and see if we can learn some valuable life lessons or, at the very least, some necessary parenting skills.
