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!
New pregnancy rumors have started about Jennifer Aniston. The actress, who is engaged to actor Justin Theroux, was spotted in Los Angeles this week wearing an oversized jacket, leading some to speculate she’s covering up a baby bump. In addition, a source claims that at a recent engagement party thrown for the couple, Jen seemed to be avoiding alcohol and raw fish. “It was so unlike her and didn't go unnoticed,” an insider told Grazia. “She was also picky with what she ate, and didn't touch the huge sushi platter, which is one of her favorite foods.”

Charlie Sheen can be a nice guy when he wants to be. TMZ reports the Anger Management star donated $75,000 to help a little girl fight a rare form of cancer. Charlie was recently talking to a cop in Hermosa Beach, CA, when he found out about another officer whose 10-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Childhood Rhabdomyosarcoma, which requires over a year of expensive medical treatments. Charlie reacted by telling the cop, “no parent should have to watch their kid go through that,” and the next day sent a check to the Hermosa Beach Police Association, which had started a fund for the kid. In addition, Charlie’s stunt double, whose salary is significantly less than the actor’s, chipped in another $25,000. Of course this isn’t Charlie’s only charitable act. It was recently revealed he gave Lindsay Lohan $100,000 to pay off her tax bill, although she isn’t that grateful. Said Charlie, “I’m still waiting for a text to say, ‘thank you.’ Anything you know?”

A new lawsuit suggests that the popular A&E show Storage Wars is faked. David Hester, who previously appeared on the show, filed the suit which claims the program is deceiving viewers by making them believe the participants are bidding on unseen goods, when valuable items are actually planted inside storage containers. Hester says when he complained to producers about the rigging, he was promptly fired. Interestingly, the suit also says that producers gave ugly cast members money for plastic surgery to “create more sex appeal.”
