I Miss Jerry Lewis and The M.D.A. Labor Day Telethon

It was September 4th, 1966 and the television world saw its first Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon. That’s right, 50 years ago. The Telethon is no longer on TV and Jerry Lewis, who was a huge part of the telethon, was asked not to return in 2011 for reasons that are still unknown. Without him, the telethon suffered. So much so, that the once 24 hour telethon was eventually pared down to just 3 hours after Lewis was no longer a part of it and now it is no more.

Today Marks My 42nd Anniversary in Radio..What a Ride!

It's hard to believe that 42 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.

Free Fishing Days in Illinois 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 and other times at ponds and lakes in the area. Over the years I have caught a few fish during our live broadcast times, but Mr. Oliver has never caught a fish with me during those times or even during the off-air times. Not one fish has ever been harvested by him over a 20 or so on and off years of fishing with me.

Were You Listening to 99-Q Radio 31 Years Ago Today?

Today marks the 31st anniversary that 99Q Radio 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.

This is How the St. Patrick’s Parade Started!

It was a morning in 1986 when I was working at 99-Q 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). It was about a week before St. Patrick’s Day and I went up to D.O. and said we need to have a St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Quincy.
