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.

Happy Birthday to My Dad

March 11 has always brought memories and good times for me.  My father was born on March 11 and every year we would celebrate his birthday and every year he would get the same birthday gift from me. That gift was two tickets to opening day of the baseball season. I haven't been able to give him tickets for 29 years now. He passed away in 1985 from Alzheimer's or dementia as it was known then.

Can We Quit Messing With The Clocks? The Big Dog’s Top 10 Reasons to Leave The Clocks Alone

This Sunday we mess with the clocks again as we “Spring Forward” one hour into Standard Time. So at 2 a.m. Sunday we move the clocks to 3 and lose an hour.

It would be nice if we just left the clocks alone.  With that said, here are my top 10 reasons to leave the clocks alone.

Airport Destination Codes Can Be Confusing

If you have ever flown you have had to ask yourself, "who came up with these airport destination code letters?" Some are obvious and others are way out there. Perhaps the guy or gal who came up with these codes had a long layover someplace and just jotted down letters to cities over a few hundred beers.
