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, Kansas City Royals, Kansas City Chiefs, and St. Louis Blues 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.

It is Not Legally ‘Smart’ to Shovel Your Sidewalk

I was having a conversation with a friend recently about some of the crazy laws this country has and I recalled a story another friend told me last year regarding snow covered sidewalks. We were trying to walk on an icy sidewalk of a local restaurant last winter and I wondered why wouldn't the owner clean the snow off the sidewalk? I thought, "wouldn't a clean sidewalk be better for his customers?" As an owner you sure wouldn't want a customer to slip on their property. With that said, you will be amazed as why you should leave the snow on the sidewalk.
