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.

This May Be The Most Important Invention Ever

 

Every time I see or hear about a person turning 100 years old I think about all of the things they have lived through.  All the new inventions and the lifestyle changes have been significant over the last 100 years.  Since 1913 there have been quite a few changes in the way we live.  It also leads me to ask, what do you think is the most important invention ever?

Air Force Thunderbirds Fly in Chicago Air Show This weekend

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. Hundreds of thousands, if not even a million people, usually set their eyes to the sky and get trilled at what they are watching.

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.
