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.

Congratulations goes out to Ken Griffey Junior and Mike Piazza. Both were named last week to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. No player has ever been voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame unanimously, but Griffey Jr. came pretty close.  He was three votes shy of being a unanimous choice. He received 99.3 % of the votes and Piazza garnered 83% of the votes which is nothing to sneeze at either.

How Do You Hang Your Toilet Paper? [VOTE]

Ok, there comes a time when debate is necessary and that time has come. I was listening to a conversation regarding the age old question of which way the roll of toilet paper should  go on the roller. I remember having this conversation on the air when I did a talk show years ago and I took a complete hour of calls with people's opinion on the subject.
