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.

I am not aware of when that pay phone was removed. And I am also not aware of any other pay phone still in existence in the City of Quincy.

It is hard to believe but the summer is almost gone. In Quincy, the end of summer occurs three different times. Everyone around here always considers summer to be over when the KC BBQ ends. Others say that summer in Quincy ends on Labor Day and the final and official end of summer will be September 23 when the Autumnal Equinox occurs. In any case, with Labor Day upon us, the City of Quincy has announced their holiday schedule.
