The Summer of ’99: Remembering the Terror of The Railroad Killer [Video]

I remember the Summer of '99 vividly.  I was working in the News Department here at WBKR/WOMI and there was no bigger, or more terrifying news story, than that of Rafael Resendez-Ramirez, who was better known by the nickname "The Railroad Killer."  Resendez-Ramirez was among the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives and was the subject of a nationwide manhunt that weaved in and out of Texas, Illinois and Kentucky.  And rumors were swirling that he was spotted in Owensboro.

Who Remembers the McPizza from McDonald’s? [Video]

Do you remember the McPizza?  Chances are you do if you live in the tristate area.  It was 1989 that McDonald's launched and tested the product right here in the WBKR listening area.  McDonald's locations in Owensboro, Kentucky and Evansville, Indiana were serving up 14-inch, family-style pizzas and, if you ask me, they were delicious!

Federal Court Issues Temporary Injunction Against Warrick County Solid Waste Management District

This morning I received the below press release from The National Waste & Recycling Association. Even though the second line of the release stated, "Warrick County Residents May Use Any Hauler for its Waste and Recycling Service," I had to call the NWRA for myself to CONFIRM that I didn't misread or misunderstand.
