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!

Olympus Has Fallen (R)

Aaron Eckhart plays the President, Ashley Judd is the First Lady, Angela Bassett is the director of the Secret Service, and Morgan Freeman is the Speaker of the House...who steps in as the acting president once everything hits the fan.
Tina Fey plays a Princeton admissions officer who bends the rules for an applicant who may be the son she secretly gave up for adoption. Paul Rudd plays Tina's love interest, and Lily Tomlin is in it as her mom.
Spring Breakers (R)
Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, and Ashley Benson from "Pretty Little Liars" fund a raunchy spring break trip by robbing a fast food joint . . . then get busted on drug charges, and bailed out by James Franco.
He plays a drug dealer named "Alien" who convinces the four chicks to continue their crime spree for him. (--The fourth girl in the movie is the director's wife, Rachel Korine.)
