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’s Time to Build a Canal from Meredosia to Quincy

Having grown up in New York State, I lived literally on the Erie Canal in Rome, New York.  It’s a canal that connects the Hudson River at Albany, New York with Lake Erie at Buffalo, New York. It runs some 363 miles through central New York State. The concept to build the canal came in 1807 and construction began in 1817 with the canal opening officially on this day, October 26 in 1825.  Why do I mention this?

The World Series Shook 27 Years Ago Today

I remember it vividly.  Al Michaels and Tim McCarver were broadcasting Game Three of the 1989 World Series between the Oakland A's and the San Francisco Giants when all of a sudden the TV went black and all you could hear was Michaels talking.  The audio quality went from clear to phone-like and after a few seconds he began to realize that an earthquake had just occurred.
