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.

Unfortunately, one thing that is still not back to normal is garbage pickup.

Ladies, If You Read Anything Today, Make Sure It Is This!

It is sad that I feel it necessary to post this story, but post I must. Unfortunately, the world we live in is not the same one I grew up in and people are far more dangerous that they used to be. So with that said, I was sent this by a friend who asked me to share the story. So here it is.

Baseball Has Made ‘Cracker Jack’ a Household Name

The song came out in 1908 and it is played at almost every baseball game played in America including the Hannibal Cavemen and the Quincy Gems games. It’s the “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” song and that song has single handedly sent the sales of Cracker Jack through the roof. In the song there is a line that says “Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack.”
