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.

Back on July 17 I had the honor of being invited to attend St. Louis Cardinal Broadcaster Mike Shannon's 75th birthday party. The event was held at Shannon's Restaurant in downtown St. Louis. Upon arrival, there was a huge birthday card for all to sign next to the steps leading up to the restaurant. On the other side was a Budweiser Clydesdale. For a fleeting moment I actually felt "small."

Who Would You Like To See Perform in Concert in Quincy?

What Quincy needs is a really good "big" name concert. I have heard that comment from people for years. The last "big" name concert I can remember was Bret Michaels when he came to Quincy a few years ago. I have wondered why we don't have one "big" concert a year in Quincy.
