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.

Why Do They Call it the ‘Oscars’?

The 89th Academy Awards will be held this Sunday at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California this Sunday night and can be seen on ABC Television. One by one the winners will be presented an "Oscar" for their outstanding work in the motion picture business in a variety of categories. It got me to thinking, why do they call it an "Oscar"? So I did a little research and found out through Wikipedia that there are actually two different stories as to how "Oscar" came to be.

Do You Remember Woolworth’s in Quincy?

It was on July 18, 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.

Fighting is OK On The Ice But Not Off?

What is good for one set of people is apparently not good for another. I was talking with some friends recently while watching the St. Louis Blues play Winnipeg. During a lull in the action, the TV broadcast began to show some highlights of a fight that took place in a recent encounter between the two teams. Fighting in the game of hockey is down for the most part but still occurs. The National Hockey League has a dilemma to deal with.
