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 joined 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. Forty-two years later, I am still doing what I love.

What Street is in the Worst Condition in Quincy?

Last September I took a little 13 hour drive out of Illinois across Missouri, Kansas and into Colorado. It was funny to notice that the road conditions of each state were somewhat different as we crossed each state's border. Illinois' was the worst by far. It got me to thinking about all the roads and highways there are in this country.

Remember Woolworth’s in Quincy?

It was on this date in 1879 that F.W. Woolworth opened his first 5 and 10 cent store in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He sold no items for more than a dime.
Unfortunately, he went broke a short time later.  He didn't give up though.  He opened another store in a better location and went on to become one of America's richest men.

The Famous O.J. Simpson Bronco Chase Was 22 Years Ago

Most people remember just where and what they were doing 22 years ago when OJ Simpson was being "chased ", and I use that word loosely, by the Los Angeles Police Department. It’s quite possible that you, like a good number of Americans, were glued to a television set following the progress of a white Ford Bronco as it cruised along a Los Angeles freeway with the police in slow-motion pursuit.

There is Big Money to be Made With Garage Sales

Garage sales have become a business. Is it just me or are there more garage sales than ever going on in this area? It seems like every power pole (undamaged) has a message on it directing someone to a sale. The best sign I ever saw was on South 24th Street a few summers ago that said "Crap for Sale" with an arrow.

Free Fishing Days in Illinois This Weekend

If you have listened to the Y101 Morning Show over the years you probably know that on Free Fishing Days Dennis Oliver and I would go out and fish live on the air.  Sometimes we were at the Mississippi River and other times at ponds and lakes in the area. Over the years I have caught a few fish during our live broadcast times, but Mr. Oliver has never caught a fish with me during those times or even during the off-air times. Not one fish has ever been harvested by him over a 20 or so on and off years of fishing with me.
