Jeffrey Dorsey

My radio career began at KIEE-FM in Harrisonville, Missouri which later became KCFX in Kansas City. I worked there for 4 years before landing a position at WTAD and KHQA-TV here in Quincy doing a radio show and play-by-play sports. After doing TV Sports for KHQA, I worked for both WTAD and WQCY-FM (99Q). I moved over to WGEM as Operations Manager and then returned to WTAD as General Manager. In 2001 I joined Y101. I have been fortunate enough to win 6 Silver Dome Awards from the Illinois Broadcasters Association , including 5 for best Play-By-Play and one for Best Radio Show Entertainer. My favorite music is the Blues. The New York Yankees and the Kansas City Chiefs are my favorite teams. I played baseball for 24 years and my claim to fame is a double off of Rick Sutcliffe when we both played in Kansas City.

Finally, A Hospital Gown That Covers Your #@*(&^%

I was reading the Saturday edition of the Quincy Herald Whig and came across a story about hospital gowns. Apparently, a Detroit based health system has come up with  a new hospital gown. Now, before you go off thinking that this story is not what it is "cracked" up to be, think about how long people have been complaining that the hospital gown they are wearing fails to provide "rear coverage" (sounds like a football term doesn't it?).
