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.

What happened to this little defenseless boy goes beyond description. At the age of 5, little Alan was beaten to death by his mother, Pamela Berg, and her boyfriend from Peoria, James Crain.  Both were tried and convicted.

Could Sledding Down South Park Hill Come To an End?

It looks like another one of my favorite pastimes of my youth may be disappearing in this country. I was watching the news on FOX-TV during lunch today at a local restaurant when they featured a story about some 9 states that have some sort of ordinance prohibiting sleigh riding down hills in public places. Illinois and Iowa were two of the nine states listed. This is apparently based upon the cities being liable for any injuries during the sledding activity.

You Won’t Believe How Many Porta Potties Were in Times Square!

As I watched the ball come down at Times Square in New York City I couldn't help but think about a few questions regarding what is available to the million plus people who were gathered there on New Year’s Eve. So I did a little research on the celebration in New York City. The main question that came to my mind, after looking at the throng of people gathered there, was how many porta potties did they have to set up?

It’s the End of 2014, Where Did the Year Go?

Happy New Year! Where did the year go? I cannot believe we are celebrating a new year arriving already. Wasn't it just March and the St. Patrick's Parade? Wasn't it just Gus Macker time in May? Wasn't it just July with fireworks going off at the Quincy Gems game? Wasn't it just the last Blues in the District time in September? Wasn't it just Halloween, Thanksgiving and even Christmas? Where does time go?
