Quinn and Rose are off the air, and we await word that they are returning soon. (Stand by) 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!
Here are a few radio trade paper links. They are usually pretty boring. Nothing I could find about Q&R.
Nothing really new here. Chilly has a short reprieve. Maybe until the 6th or longer.
Did you get my ping?
Finally you probably have seen this, it’s not new but mrs p6 and I enjoyed it over the weekend.
Hey Yunz! Check it out n at!
Then there is this. I don’t look good anymore...
Back to work...sigh.
Small update on WJAS. Just learned that both Bogut and Chilly will not be in today. They decided that last Friday would be their last air shift. End of an era.
ooo...things are getting interesting. Not confirmed but supposedly WJAS is leaving our building (that is confirmed) and will be broadcasting from the WDVE building. That is the same building Q&R were in with WPGB...
Target is still Aug 6th.
Our parsley is turning brown. Not sure why. Almost never have that problem. Might be the cold weather we’ve had.
Last night I fixed a mess of garden fresh Chinese Long Green beans... MMMmmmm
We don’t think it’s blight. Maybe I dropped syrup from the hummingbird feeder into it but it wouldn’t have been much.
Son In Law just gave us a bunch of his green beans. We’ll be doing something with them soon.
Good morning n’@! Everyone!
Ebola, the water situation in Toledo, OH, and it’s just. Monday. What fresh horrors will this week bring?!?
Congrats on the beans! Sounds like (as always, AM,) Your garden is growing beautifully!
Did you see the weatherbell Saturday forecast? Sometimes Joe confuses me but it seemed like he was saying that after a cold start there would be slightly warmer weather through November.
Ate garden fresh broccoli Saturday for lunch... been years since growing any.. MMmmmmm
I went to bed just after I posted. Was up awhile before that. I still feel groggy!
I didn’t get the ping. Going to check it out now! Too bad about Bogut and Chilly. I always remember listening to Bogut when I was taking drivers Ed in high school. Our DE instructor always had the car radio on to KDKA in the mornings. I always got a kick out of “keno tata”!
OH My Gosh! Loved the HOw to Speak Pitturghese video! LOL!!!! I’ve moved from there long ago so I lost most of that, but it still pops up now and again. That 60 miles makes a difference.
God bless Pittsburgh. (Even it is IS a mostly democrat city!)
Figured they would blame water on fracing...
How can I get his forecast? Thought it was pay to see? Whats playing on WJAS now?
Radioinsight has the Country rumor!!
Our garden was looking pretty good, but with the deer eating the corn and squash, and now the groundhog re-discovered our snow peas, things are not so hot. I covered the sweet potatoes and boc choy with netting and that seems to have kept it away.
Checked out the Boyer Orchards website (New Paris, Pa) for peaches. We go there every year for our canning peaches. The -10 degree weather we had means no peaches from there this year. Have to see if we can get peaches at a roadside stand. Probably going to be more expensive.
There is a Saturday FReeper thread. IIRC you can also go to weatherbell.com and get the free version.
WJAS is playing the same music as before it’s just all automated. a couple of canned newscasts and no traffic. News will probably be gone tomorrow. We put it in today because nobody knew what was happening. Not unusual for radio...sigh. We’ll get more info later today.
Thanks. Finally some good news.
Planted some tomato plants close to the house..one is as tall as me but it looks like grape size but those are the same as go in my salad,plus a few pepper plants planted late...
The Pirates sure are a soap opera..
Used to Listen to Bogut every morning getting ready for school. Mom always had KDKA on and there was no other radio station in the world I thought.
Hope him and Chilly enjoy their retirements. They have earned it.
You made my day..what a hoot of a song!!
Geez. I remember getting my mom to stay up and watch the Chilly Billy scarey movies on Friday nights(or was it Sat) growing up in Pittsburgh.
They are in a Web show called Red Vs Blue?
Church is a smart ass....Caboose is kind of a well meaning goofball....Very funny show if you like that sort of thing.
Target is Aug. 6?
Wow, that’s a mighty quick deadline to move a radio station.
My daughter lives in Toledo. She drove to our house Saturday, showered, loaded up on 30 gallons of water from Aldi and Shop n’ Save then drove back Sunday morning.
Well they are moving just a couple thousand feet down the road. Just a couple of main computers, two boards, processing and xmtr controls and odds and ends. One Hertz truck should be fine although they will probably start moving tonight.
In the meantime since everything is canned once the files are transferred everything could run rom a laptop. Even a cell phone would work but would be risky. I have done just that.
Where they are moving is CC in Pgh so the building is already set up. Move the back up equipment first and get it running, then move the main equipment.
There will be issues but since nothing will be live for awhile it should be ok. BTW I have noticed the signal has improved. Not great but better.
I’d vote for them over michelle.
a Homeless crack head would be a better choice than any democrat
