Today Marks the 29th Anniversary of the Beginning of 99Q Radio

April 25 is a very special day for me and four other people. It was 29 years ago today that 99Q hit the airwaves of the Hannibal-Quincy area. On April 25, 1985 at 5:30 a.m., WQCY-FM changed its format, as well as my life. The format went from “Easy Listening” to “Top 40″ and with it a legacy began.

Here is How Quincy’s St. Patrick’s Parade Got Its Start

It was a morning in 1986 when I was working at 99Q Radio with Dennis Oliver. He was just finishing up his morning show and I was beginning my mid-day stint (after working the morning show on WTAD earlier that morning).

To Blog or not to Blog

I am new at blogging. I will admit that. But somehow it seems the right thing to do. I have many things I could blog about. I am not the kind of blogger to create waves but it will not be a sugarcoated blog either. I love reading blogs but never thought I might be writing one.
