Ker­nel of truth

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - Broward - - THE GO GUIDE -

Again, we men­tion this now to give you time to prop­erly pre­pare … The an­nual KVJ 5K, ben­e­fit­ing Lit­tle Smiles, re­turns to the West Palm Beach wa­ter­front on Thursday, hosted as al­ways by the zany crew of “The KVJ Show” (6-10 a.m. week­days on WRMF, 97.9-FM). Each host is tak­ing part and spon­sor­ing a team. Kevin is clearly too se­ri­ous to run with; Vir­ginia is bring­ing the baby, so you’ll be stop­ping a lot to talk with fans; but Jason may be right up your al­ley. He once told the PalmBeacher mag­a­zine that, as a ra­dio stunt, in an at­tempt to break the world record for most popcorn con­sumed in one sit­ting, he locked him­self in a “popcorn cof­fin,” a Plex­i­glas box filled with popcorn. For four days, he ate noth­ing but popcorn, he said, un­til paramedics broke him out. The story may be apoc­ryphal, but we like the way his mind works. Visit: KVJ5K.com.
