Jeff Corder or "Quarter" (nicknamed because of his sound-alike last name) is a Chicagoland food, improv, and live music fan who's always out wherever there's great pizza, plenty of laughs, and a good (or bad) band playing. Corder "grew-up" (…questionable) 28 Metra stops from Michigan & Randolph in the Southside paradise known as Blue Island. He graduated Dwight D. Eisenhower HS as "Most Likely To Be Unlikely" and attended Illinois State University…before they asked him to "please leave." When not on the air, Jeff can be found volunteering for local charities, playing with his Mom's parrots, or learning the art of power-napping.
When I was a little girl in Little Rock, Arkansas I used to stay up late with my favorite Christmas present - a transistor radio. I would tune in WLS AM, broadcasting from the exciting big city of Chicago, and when I heard Yvonne Daniels on the air I thought “YES! THAT’S what I want to do”. Dreams do come true because years later I ended up hosting the same show on WNUA that Yvonne Daniels hosted at one time. After college and some time touring with a band, playing keyboards and singing, I landed my first radio job in Little Rock. I then moved on to stations in Detroit and Chicago before doing mornings on WNUA. First solo then partnering with Jazz Great Ramsey Lewis. I joined Lite FM three years ago.
I live in the Northwest Suburbs with my hubby (the most patient man in the world) and my two sons. They’re used to Mom’s early morning hours and indulge my cooking obsession. They’ll try anything…once! Partially by necessity, I love to run. I’m not too speedy but better at endurance. This year will be my third Chicago Marathon. I do yoga to de-stress and tennis just to make my friends feel good about winning. I live for Family, Friends, Food and Music (maybe in that order). I love live music especially outside in the summer - From the Grant Park Symphony Orchestra to Ravinia to catching my friends’ bands playing in the local clubs. Looking at my Facebook page it seems like all I do is post about live shows and restaurants!
I really do feel like I am the luckiest person in the world to be able to do what I love – helping people wake up and get going in the best city in the world. Yes Karen… Life is Good!

NAKED PHOTOS PROBABLY NOT BIEBER!
Justin Bieber is not naked on the internet. On Wednesday, Justin tweeted that someone allegedly stole “personal stuff” from his computer, and on Thursday, alleged naked pics of the 18-year-old hit the web. The photos show a male torso, with a hand holding his junk. Speculation claimed it was Justin because the male in question has a bird tattoo on his inner hip similar to the one Justin has. But insiders insist to TMZ the pictures are not the pop star.

STEWART ADMITS SHE’S UNHAPPY!
Kristen Stewart is finally admitting that she’s not a very cheery person. When asked in an interview with Britain’s Marie Claire magazine what makes her happy, the Twilight star replied, “I’m a miserable c***! I’m not sure if I’m most happy when I’m comfortable and content or when I’m pushing myself to the limits.” She added, “There are such different versions of happy. And I really appreciate both.” To us it looks like she appreciates neither.
COWELL'S AND SPEARS MANSIONS ON ‘X FACTOR’ WERE FAKES
The homes shown to be Simon Cowell’s and Britney Spears’ on “The X Factor” did not actually belong to them. In fact, the home that Cowell used belongs to Alex Rodriguez, TMZ says. Groups of contestants were invited to perform at four different homes belong to one of the show’s four judges. Cowell’s home belongs to Rodriguez, who has had it listed for $38,000,000, but it is still on the market. Cowell’s real home is in Beverly Hills. It’s unknown who owns the Malibu home that Britney appeared in, but it’s not hers. Her real home is several miles away in Calabasas. It’s also unknown if the other two homes were also fake, but it’s possible.
