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!
One more month!!
Pray that our Quinn & Rose are back on the air soon!
Never thought I’d be longing to hear the “Canadian marching band” intro.
Good morning n’@!
Well I for one can proudly say I did NOT follow ANY of the coverage of Barry&Joe Do the Burgh Show yesterday...no matter how many breathless texts from local tv stations that I received.
How about them Pens? Started out slow (hello it’s the playoffs!) but won! There was a funny screen cap from ESPN (that I can’t post here bcuz no photo bucket) it had Pittsburgh as the home arena for the entire series (they are playing Columbus). So close that that Yinzers sell the place out:)
LOL! SAme here. I always hated that intro. So did Rose. I’d love to have them back bickering over it again!
What? Pansy and Plugs were in da Burgh?? Who knew! I wondered what that stink was in the wind coming from the west yesterday!
Go Pens!! :-) I heard they opened a Canadian consulate in Pittsburgh because of all the canucks coming for the playoffs.
LOLZ...now I KNOW you are allowed to say that bcuz Mr. IS (was?) Canadian:)
LOLZ...on that anthem...my favorite was the GayThemeSong (YMCA) I loved the lisping Quinn “you are a MAGNIFICENT human being and I mean that!”
Still is, but he’s more American than Canadian at this point. He loves this country as much as I do. The process of naturalization is expensive. He’d LOVE to be able to vote, but doesn’t want to cheat like the democrats do.
I don’t want to give false hope but there are rumors....rumors only...of some things changing in local radio. National too, but we are mostly concerned with local.
CC is cutting jobs again. It’s rumored to be sales but I am sure it includes air staff/board ops too.
The changes in sales >may< be an indication of impending format change on one or more stations.
It may be nothing but there seems to be something afoot.
Quinn is tweeting this morning about Lerner and the DOJ.
And if you get the chance check out the threads about the Bundy standoff and a guy who was videoing it! The BLM had shoot to kill orders.
It was one shot away from a civil war.
The whole thing stinks of a setup to provoke the cowboys into firing...and killing ...BLM agents thus bolstering reasons for gun confiscation.
If I had known I would have FReeped the despicable duo.
One of my co workers lives near where they were and he was positively thrilled and gushing about it to me last night.
I wanted to spit.
Thanks for the heads up! We can always count on our news guy (p6) and weather reporter (PaMom) for the latest news and weather reports!
P6, I’ll keep in mind that they are rumors, but still hoping for the best!
Hehehehe! I never liked it either but it would be sweet hearing it now!
Oh the WTAE updates just GUSHED-> AF2 has landed on the Tarmac; click our live link to see VP Biden deplane; VP is de planing; AF1 has landed! Obama is in Pittsburgh (glory be!)<- ok part is mine...but there was a series of 5 or 6 of “those” updates.
Great news on the local radio re-do. P6 when you get a chance read thru the last week or so of Jim’s tweets he has a troll that I am convinced works I local radio (be/she brought up the harassment lawsuit from the 90s). Lmk your thoughts if you get a chance.
Thanks for the encouragement on my wx hobby:) YOU would be our baking /cooking/lifestyle editor :)
OOOPS, speaking of wx, Wisconsin is going to get some heavy Spring snow today/tonight...has anyone heard from Ladysmith recently? I loved following her on FB (when I was over there). If you read this thread, thinking of you LS and hope all is WELL:)
I’ll try. Actually I have been trying but I keep getting a mishmash of tweets from people I don’t know. This morning there was a tweet from Jim and it was posted 20 minutes before I logged in. Underneath that was a post from somebody that was dated 4/9. Next was one a couple hours old.
Don’t tweets go chronologically? I did see some of yours but they were days old.
Oh, oh, oh! I just made my first tweet!
Now to tweet at someone do you use the @ symbol?
Ok...so looking back it wsn’t my first tweet. I made one in
2009 and one in 2012. Three in all.
YES! Use the @ symbol (that is their “address” on Twitter...screennames can be changed easily. Could the time differs fence on Jim’s TL be a retweet?
I’ll go take a look...
This morning, just after the 7 o’clock station ID, 96.9 BOB-FM played Quinn’s Loverboy opening theme music.
OK, 1.non-compete almost up, 2.prisoner6’s report and 3. now the theme music?
Can it be? I shouldn’t get too excited, but one can always hope! I guess we’ll know in a month!
