Chad here! I am one half of the radio couple hilariously nicknamed "Changel". Yes, Angel is my work wife and I routinely want a divorce. We need couples counseling immediately. LOL! Catch our show 6a-10am CST Monday through Friday on WBKR. Here at MY 105.3, you'll hear me during Feel Good 80s Weekends. I'll share with you some random and fun 80s facts and trivia about local "back-in-the-day" concerts, soundtracks, clubs and more! I In addition to flapping my lips on the air, I emcee a variety of events all over the Commonwealth of Kentucky. I emcee endless charity functions, concerts, the monthly Rooster Booster Breakfast for the Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce, various civic events, beauty pageants and a variety of dance/cheer competitions. Though I work primarily in country radio, my musical tastes are all over the place. My obsessions run from Eric Church to the Jonas Brothers. From Lady Gaga to Luke Combs and just about everything in between. And, of course, I FREAKING LOVE THE 80s. I am STILL obsessed with Prince, Pat Benatar, Madonna, Dexy's Midnight Runners, Human League, Berlin and more. In fact, in the early 2000s, I wrote an original musical called Rock This Town: The 80s Pop-Rock Musical, which debuted in 2003 at Theatre Workshop in Owensboro. I live in Owensboro with Kevin (my snarky and brutally honest other half for over 20 years), two rescued Bichon Frises (Ellie and Yogi) and a rescued Cairn Terrier mix named Simon.
