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!
KANYE PICKS BABY NAME
The Sun claims Kanye West has already picked out a name for the baby he’s expecting with Kim Kardashian. According to sources, Kanye really wants to name the child (rumored to be a girl) North, so her name will be North West.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian gave a nine-hour deposition in her divorce case Tuesday, where she insisted she married Kris Humphries for love, not publicity. Sources tell TMZ that Kim “testified under oath” that her intentions were genuine when she agreed to marry the NBA star and that her reality show “played no part in her decision to tie the knot.” Kris is trying to get an annulment based on fraud, and sources say the deposition “didn’t help his case.” The former couple’s trial is set to begin May 6th, 19 months after Kim filed for divorce (which was just 72 days after she got married).
TAYLOR NOT DATING SURFER
Sources close to Taylor Swift are denying a recent claim that she’s started dating Hawaiian surfer John John Florence. Life & Style magazine was the first to report the romance, after Aussie TV asked John John about Taylor and he said, “um, I’m not supposed to comment on that,” and then added, “Yeah, you know, it’s kind of a secret thing going on right now. Can’t bust it out in the public just yet.” But Swift insiders tell E!, “there is no truth to that at all. Taylor is not dating – or texting this guy.”
