Jeffrey Dorsey

My radio career began at KIEE-FM in Harrisonville, Missouri which later became KCFX in Kansas City. I worked there for 4 years before landing a position at WTAD and KHQA-TV here in Quincy doing a radio show and play-by-play sports. After doing TV Sports for KHQA, I worked for both WTAD and WQCY-FM (99Q). I joined WGEM as Operations Manager and then returned to WTAD as General Manager. In 2001 I joined Y101. I have been fortunate enough to win 6 Silver Dome Awards from the Illinois Broadcasters Association, including 5 for best Play-By-Play and one for Best Radio Show Entertainer. My favorite music is the Blues. The New York Yankees and the Kansas City Chiefs are my favorite teams. I played baseball for 24 years and my claim to fame is a double off of Rick Sutcliffe when we both played in Kansas City. Forty-two years later, I am still doing what I love.

Burger King Celebrating Hot Dog Day With a Dollar Dog Saturday

 

You either love them or you hate them but hot dogs are still pretty popular in America and the world. I don't quite know what it is, but a hot dog always seems to taste better at the ball park. Perhaps its the atmosphere or maybe just being outdoors that makes it so.  I bring this up because tomorrow is the day that many restaurants offer specials on hot dogs despite the fact that National Hot Dog Day in America was already held on July 14.

The West Quincy Levee Break Took Place 23 Years Ago Today

If you were around Quincy 23 years ago today, you probably know where you were when you heard the news that the levee in West Quincy failed to hold back the mighty Mississippi River. We all knew when it happened because the news and the river spread like wildfire. What we didn't know at the time was that the levy failed thanks to the assistance of Quincy native James Scott, who was eventually convicted of "creating a catastrophe" by removing sand bags in the area of the levee break. Would the levee have held back the rising water on its own?  Only God knows.

DiMaggio’s Consecutive Hitting Streak Ended 75 Years Ago Tomorrow

The year was 1941.  Americans were preoccupied with World War Two going on in Europe.  Nerves were on edge and Americans needed something or someone to do something positive.  That someone turned out to be Joe DiMaggio of the New York Yankees. Baseball was an escape from the pressures of war and people were following both the war and the game that summer especially because of DiMaggio.

What Closed Store Would You Like to See Re-Opened?

I have been reminiscing a little this week with it being the 23rd anniversary of the West Quincy levee break and I got to thinking about making a few stops at Merkels Hardware for batteries and a flashlight and some other things. It got me thinking about the businesses that were open then and are not today, like Merkels.

Where Can You Get a Good Ole Fashioned Ice Cream Cone?

It's summertime and the "livin" is easy and made easier with an ice cream cone in hand. It seems finding places that sell ice cream cones isn't as easy as it used to be. Oh, the fast food places offer soft ice cream cones but there are few locations where you can actually get hard scooped ice cream cones in the area.
