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, Kansas City Royals, Kansas City Chiefs, and St. Louis Blues 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.

I read where Congress a few years ago passed the Legacy Act. What is the Legacy Act you ask?

That rusted out tower sat atop Building #1 of the World Trade Center in New York 15 years ago. It ended up in the rubble of the two towers that collapsed as a result of the attack on the buildings in 2001.

Every two or three years I try to make it up to Chicago in mid- August to catch the Chicago Air and Water Show held on the Chicago Lakefront. The Navy Blue Angels and the Air Force Thunderbirds rotate appearances at the show and are the featured attraction each year.
