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.

Quincy Now Has a Displaced Squirrel Problem!

This past Saturday I spent a good deal of my time picking up tree debris left from the monster storm that hit Quincy on July 13. It was hot and I was drinking fluids trying not to overheat while cleaning up my property. There were tree limbs everywhere just like other places around town. Organizations and neighbors banded together to help out people like they always do in Quincy in times of need. People helping people is a good thing but hours after cleaning up my property and perhaps suffering from slight heatstroke, I began to wonder where was the Displaced Squirrel Society or D.S.S.?

There is Big Money to be Made With Garage Sales

Garage sales have become a business. Is it just me or are there more garage sales than ever going on in this area? It seems like every power pole (undamaged) has a message on it directing someone to a sale. The best sign I ever saw was on South 24th Street a few summers ago that said "Crap for Sale" with an arrow.

What Has Happened to The Quincy I Knew?

There was a time around here when the local news was filled with stories about the fire department rescuing a kitten from a tree or three kids were selling lemonade for a charity and the most serious story might be about the cops finding a homeless man sleeping in the park. I yearn for those days again. Times have changed and, unfortunately, not for the good.

Today Marks My 41st Anniversary in Radio

It's hard to believe that 41 years ago today this wide eyed radio wannabe sat behind the microphone for the first time. The radio station was KIEE in Harrisonville, Missouri in the Kansas City Metro area. I won't lie to you, I was scared to death when it became my turn to talk into the microphone.

Mayor Moore Asks Business Community for Support in Quincy Cleanup

An army of volunteers assisted the elderly and disabled to remove debris from their properties over the weekend. They worked in high heat and humidity along with some rain at times as part of the "Neighbors Helping Neighbors" campaign. Unfortunately, they were able to do just so much.  Most of them needed to return to work today. Much more needs to be done in the city's recovery. With that in mind, Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore has asked for the business community to step up and assist.

It’s 2015, Underground Power Lines Need to Happen

Last Friday I had the opportunity to listen to Adams County Emergency Services Director John Simon as he spoke to the Quincy Exchange Club. During his comments he mentioned that some 21,800 power connections needed replacement as a result of the huge front-line wind storm that ripped through the area. As you already know, thousands of residents were without power for days.   It makes you wonder if we are way past the time when power lines and poles need to go away?

Kids Need Extra Loving After a Major Storm

For many adults Monday night’s storm was frightening as the clouds built up and the winds blew through the area at nearly 80 miles an hour. With lights going out and tree limbs striking cars and houses many areas looked like a war zone. That’s an adult viewpoint. Imagine being a child going through that storm for perhaps the very first time in their life. How frightening that must have been.
