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.

The New York batter singled to centerfield to apparently win the game and the pennant for the Giants. What happened next was chaos.

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.
