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!

Star magazine has compiled a list of the Best and Worst Lovers in Hollywood, and Angelina Jolie has landed on both. While she and Brad Pitt like to get it on behind the waterfall in their pool, Angie’s ex Billy Bob Thornton was once quoted as saying, "sometimes, with the model, the actress, the 'sexiest person in the world,' it may be literally like f***ing the couch,” allegedly in reference to her. Others making the Best Lovers list include: John Mayer, who is said to be “sensational;” Ryan Gosling, who has “laser focus” in the bedroom; Beyonce, who ties up hubby Jay Z and “gets absolutely wild,” and Jennifer Lopez who is said to be a screamer. Among the worst are Taylor Swift, who only wants to “kiss for hours,” and Jennifer Aniston, who “just lays there.”

In an upcoming interview with CBS This Morning, the singer/songwriter/guitarist and (hopefully) former philanderer said, "I was just a jerk" in past relationships, adding, "I wanted everybody to like me. I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction." Mayer's interview airs this Sunday at 9a.
