Hello!  I'm TJ Deal, the new guy on the Q Crew, and I want to become a Rockford local. I'm no stranger to the area, but I would never insult your intelligence and call myself a local.  How can I make this happen?

What things do I need to accomplish before I can be accepted as one of you? Let me know! Is there a hill I need to sled down? Is there a Rockford brew I need to drink?  Do I need to go see a hockey game?

You have been naming a lot of places to eat on the Q 98.5 Facebook page and I'm always down for great food but I know eating isn't the only thing to do here.

I'm taking all your suggestions and making a list.  One by one I'll knock them out until you accept me into your good graces! You can drop me a line down below in the comments section OR head to the Q 98.5 Facebook page and leave your suggestion there!
