Dr. Dorsey’s Reasons for Why More Quincy People are Yawning

Is it just me, or are you also seeing more and more people in Quincy yawning lately? It got me to thinking about just why people yawn in the first place. Is it the brains way of saying I need more oxygen? That’s what I have heard over the years, but researchers are starting to unravel the mystery surrounding the yawn. Yawning, they have discovered, is much more complicated than previously thought.

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.

Just What is This Round Object?

Radio stations are notorious for accumulating "junk." Usually it is promotional items or signage, and the junk is kept for future use and most likely will never be used again. Recently, one of our staff members got energetic and cleaned out the Y101 storage area, and in doing so came across a box. That box ended up in my office with what looks like ping-pong balls in it.

My First Job Was Delivering TV Guides, What Was Yours?

From time to time it is always good to step back and take a  look at where you are and where you have been. Having worked 40 years in the crazy business, I did just that the other day.

I eventually got to the very first job I ever had.

We Are a Mobile Society, So In What State Were You Born?

With the weather as hot as it was over the weekend, it turned out to be a "lost" weekend as far as doing the things I wanted to do. I did manage to make it to Blues in the District Friday night, and while there I ran into a guy from Hannibal who recognized me. Then I met a guy and his wife from Kansas who was there as well. Saturday, I ventured out for dinner and struck up a conversation from some people from Arkansas, Indiana and Florida. Just by chance these occurrences all took place. It almost felt like I was around more "outsiders" than "locals."  It got me to thinking about just how mobile our society is.

What Was OK in 1994 is No Longer OK in 2014

The year is 1994. You are 17 years old, using your bag cell phone, driving 40 miles an hour on Broadway in Quincy, smoking a cigarette, heading to a tanning place to make your skin golden brown in January.
