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.

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).

Flag Raising Efforts all for Naught

A few weeks ago I posted a picture of a flag in Quincy that was tattered and torn and needed to be removed. So with the help of Dawn Whitcomb at the Illinois Veteran's Home who provided me with a new flag, Tim Gottman of Sign Pro and I proceeded to take down the tattered flag and replace it with the new one. That effort was successful at least until yesterday when I went past the location around 8th and Broadway in Quincy.
