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!

TMZ reports that Britney Spears is such a wanted commodity in Las Vegas that three Sin City properties are in a bidding war to sign her to a residency. But friends of the singer don’t think a long-term commitment to Vegas is a good idea, especially since her engagement toJason Trawick just ended and she just departed X Factor. “I'm not sure just how good an idea Vegas is for Britney right now. If she can't handle the X Factor - how will she be able to perform five days a week in Vegas?,” a source told The Mail. According to insiders, Britney was so dependent on Jason, they worry she’ll have a hard time adjusting now that she’s on her own. They say she rarely went anywhere without Jason, and on the rare occasions she was seen alone, it was just to get coffee or go shopping near her home. Over time, the pair’s romantic relationship ended and they became more like friends. Radar reports that when Jason decided it was over, it was Brit’s father Jamie who brokered the breakup, deciding how to inform Britney and how to announce it. “Jason and Jamie wanted to make sure that Britney didn’t lose it, so they had to water things down for her a bit,” said the source.

Promises of a Nicki Minaj/Mariah Carey feud wasn’t enough to help American Idol in the ratings. Wednesday night’s premiere drew 17.9 million viewers, a drop of 19 percent from last January’s debut. It was Idol’s lowest-rated and least-watched regular-season premiere telecast ever.

Prompted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s joke at the Golden Globe Awards, New Yorkmagazine asked Michael J. Fox what he thought about the possibility of Taylor Swift dating his son Sam and he didn’t sound to thrilled. "I don't keep up with it at all," he admitted. "Taylor Swift writes songs about everybody she goes out with, right? What a way to build a career." Fox said that if Sam ever brought Taylor home he “wouldn’t even know who she was.” Of course that would change if she wrote a song about Sam, with Fox joking that after he heard, “Sam, You Piece of Sh-t,” he’d realize, “Oh . . . that was the girl you brought home!"
Did Taylor Swift get breast implants?? Well, that’s what In Touch is speculating that Taylor Swift got a boob job, suggesting that the country star has been “looking noticeably bustier in recent months.” The magazine enhanced a picture of Taylor at the People’s Choice Awards earlier this month, and claim they see what could be a surgery scar. A plastic surgeon named Dr. Michael Fiorillo, who didn’t treat the star, believes she went from an A cup to a B, and after looking at the photo insists, “you can see the implants.”
