Skip to comments.Fans of Quinn and Rose Daily Discussion - Thursday, February 20, 2014
Posted on 02/20/2014 3:20:09 AM PST by sneakers
Quinn and Rose are off the air, (temporarily, I hope!) Gone, but DEFINITELY not forgotten! Meanwhile, our friendly group of dedicated FReeper Q&R fans will meet in our usual spot - same time, same station - as we always have! So grab your coffee - or whatever you choose to start your day - and drop in for some political chit-chat, or just to shoot the breeze! We are all coming from - or going to - work, but we all stop in to say hi! Feel free to join us!
Morning AM! 19 degrees here, and we’re under a wind advisory.
Really enjoying that Roku!
Good morning n’@!
Weird weather arriving tonight. High (damaging) winds and thunderstorms...and then winter comes back next (complete w/snow!)
Just read that w/the heavy ice mass on Superior (and ALL GLakes) we should have a cooler than avg summer.
The EQ swarm in OK slowed yesterday/last night.
That takes care of Mother Earth update...now this mom is still (but I work today!) and son is staying home today (has awful headache->how this started for me).
Yinz be careful news saying a lot of black ice this morning!
OOOPS...still SICK! I’m still hacking and sneezing...and can’t blame my typos on meds because I’m only taking OTC stuff!
Scary to think of what I might be like on ACTUAL medicine :-/
Thanks for the daily EQ and weather updates PaMom! I hope your son gets over it quickly! And YOU take care of yourself too!
I’m listening to Jeff Kuhner on WRKO right now. He’s saying that Oblahblah admin is proposing that all media be monitored by the govt. Even lib media types are stunned at the over-reach of the proposal.
Scary stuff. :-(
The shame is, they are determined to drag the rest of us down, to their level of misery.
Go Here and scroll down to the January radio ratings discussion" for the entire thread. It mentions 104.7 and Q&R.
January radio ratings -- Karl, 00:41:15 02/20/14 Thu  The big news is twofold: KDKA-AM and 3WS are tied for the overall No. 1 spot, and WDVE has tumbled to sixth place.
These are the total audience numbers (6+) so it doesn't include any demographic breakdowns, which are the key to station revenues.
The top five stations in January were: KDKA and 3WS (tied), Bob FM 96.9, Y108 and KISS 96.1.
Later down the thread...
I think the rise of KDKA-AM coincides with the demise of Quinn and Rose.
Face it, if you're into spoken word in the morning and you were a Quinn listener, where were you going to go?
104.7 continues to languish. They appear to be safe, despite the left's hopes, because costs are low, contracts long, and their shows are well known.
But they need a new morning show bad; be it Imus, Bill Bennett, paying Quinn and Rose the money, something new, whatever. There hasn't been a morning show that has sunk a station so much since David Lee Roth.
Yes! We have KDKA on for the morning drive to work now! At home I’m either streaming WMAL in DC or WRKO in Boston, but in the car it’s KDKA! Wow! So the Q&R listeners have somewhat of an impact?
I didn’t see this before I posted on today’s thread. Thanks for the ratings update. Interesting!
