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.

Of All The Cars You Have Owned, Which One Was Your Favorite?

This morning we had Mark Holtmeyer of Spring Street Automotive on the show as a co-host after he won the auction to be with us at the QND Extravaganza last fall. Throughout the show he was discussing the need for regular car maintenance to prolong the life of your vehicle. People are keeping the cars longer these days which got me to thinking about just how many cars I have owned in my lifetime.
