Free Fishing Days in Illinois, Missouri This Weekend

If you have listened to the Y101 Morning Show over the years you probably know that on Free Fishing Days Dennis Oliver and I would go out and fish live on the air.  Sometimes we were at the Mississippi River.

Job Well Done, Coach Dave Swisegood!

As the sun was setting Monday night, it was apparent that Dave Swisegood had coached his final baseball game of his illustrious career. His Southeastern Suns lost in the regionals to the Payson Seymour Indians in the Mendon Regional by the score of 17 to 2 ending his final season as a head baseball coach. Swisegood’s career covered 60 years and he leaves the game as the winningest high school coach in the State of Illinois with 950 wins.
