‘Elvin Tappe Lane’ at Q.U. Stadium Needs to Happen

In January of 2013 the Quincy Park District announced that their new park on Bonansinga Drive would be known as Lincoln Park. The Park District had asked the public to submit names to be considered and you can’t go wrong with the name of Lincoln. I had submitted the name of Elvin Tappe. So Elvin lost out to Lincoln, but so did Steven Douglas.

What “Walk-Up” Song Fits the Big Dog?

I have no idea how I happened to be on so many people's birthday list but thank you for all of the birthday wishes I have been receiving today.  Birthdays are fun and they make you reflect on things you have done in the past.  There are two things I have always wanted to do in my life and I am lucky to say that I have done them both.

The 27th Annual Teddy Bear Clinic is This Sunday

The 27th Annual Teddy Bear Clinic will be held this Sunday afternoon from noon to 3 p.m. at Blessing Hospital's main entrance. As the founder of this event 27 years ago, the staff at Blessing Riemann College of Nursing was kind enough to name one of two new gigantic Teddy Bears after me last year.  He is known as the "Dorsey Bear" and the other is known as "Flo" after Florence Nightingale. If you missed them last year, both bears will be there this Sunday.

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.

Hey, Fireworks Face!

I was reading a Time Magazine when I came across in bold print the following....$81.29. It caught my eye and I read on to find out that for $81.29 one can buy a 200 rocket fireworks package that will explode and form the shape of the buyers face. It would also be visible from up to 20 miles.

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. 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.

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). 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.
