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.

It got me to thinking about the pioneer days when people actually ate those foods on a daily basis. They did it for survival.

Behind the Scenes at Y101 – Be Prepared to Enter ‘The Big Dog Zone’ [Video]

The other day I was asked about my office here at work. I was asked what it looked like and if it was a big office or a small office. I tried to explain "The Big Dog Zone" and what was in it, but I thought instead of verbalizing my office, why not just video it with some narration? So an idea was born for the whole world to see.
