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.

Ironically, National One Hit Wonder Day Came and Went

I noticed this morning that yesterday was a monumental day in the record business and I totally missed it. Thursday was "National One Hit Wonder Day." Apparently, there is a day for everything if you look hard enough for it. It did set my mind into motion thinking about some of my favorite one hit wonder groups and their big songs. The seventies seemed to have quite a few members to this one hit wonder club including the Starland Vocal Band in 1976 with "Afternoon Delight".

My First Job Was Delivering TV Guides, What Was Yours?

From time to time it is always good to step back and take a  look at where you are and where you have been. Having worked 40 years in the crazy business, I did just that the other day. I started backtracking to how I got started in this business and what was I doing before I got my first radio job. And then the job before that and the one before that one. I eventually got to the very first job I ever had.

Perhaps the Greatest Dispute in the History of Baseball Happened 106 Years Ago Today

The year was 1908 and the New York Giants and the Chicago Cubs were playing the final game of the season. The Cubs and the Giants were both tied for the National League Championship and this game would determine the National League winner. With the score tied at 1 to 1, New York was batting in the bottom of the ninth with two men on base and with two men out. The New York batter singled to centerfield to apparently win the game and the pennant for the Giants. What happened next was chaos.

Move Over Dick Tracy, the Apple Watch Will Soon Be Here

When I was a little kid I can remember reading the very popular comic strip Dick Tracy. Tracy was a plain clothes undercover investigator. One of the cool things about Dick Tracy was his famous 2-Way wrist radio that he wore on his left wrist as a wristwatch. The radio wrist watch became the comic strip’s signature icon.
