Gone (temporarily, I hope!) but DEFINITELY not forgotten! Quinn and Rose are off the air, but they WILL be back! 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!
Visit the Quinn & Rose website at www.warroom.com
Somebody has started a petition:
Thanks for the link to the petition.
Did you see the thread about O'Keefe? He tweeted that Sebelius is going to have a VERY bad day!!!!
Just signed the petition.
Good morning n’@!
Day three of RadioWasteland...
And yep...I DID see the O’Keeefe thread—BREIBART LIVES! Hope Kathy S DOES have a rotten day!
Did ya also read that DearLeader was (conveniently) “given” the first draft copy blah blah blah of the Gettysburg Address. Ya know. The one that omits G-D! Yet ALL the others living PREEZIES (and celebrities) TO A ONE each were asked to read the versio. WITH G-D mentioned.
He couldn’t say allah, so he didn’t say nuthun’. Djinn bastich.
zI sure hope O’Keefe has something that will not just make KS have a bad day but something that pushes BO over the edge!
Another day without my morning dose of common sense...
I’ve been getting up with these guys almost every weekday for over 18 years. Signed the petition and emailed multiple people at WPGB, Clear Channel and iHeart Radio (my connection on the road). The only reason I had iHeart on my computers and phone was to listen to Quinn & Rose and I told them so.
Got an email from Rose yesterday. They have two public appearances/fund raisers (which they do a lot of) still scheduled:

The fact that they had a live broadcast scheduled for December 6th might suggest that they expected to be on the air on December 6th...
What did they replace Quinn with? And when do the first new ratings come in? I hope they are abominable.
Yes you are correct. It appears they expected to be on the air.
Something in this whole incident STINKS!
Some guy who goes by the moniker “Bloomdaddy” out of Wheeling, West Virginia. It’s a morning “variety” (sports, entertainment, etc.) call-in show. I listened for a very short time on Monday morning and, at one point, he said, “Hey, I’m open-minded about everything.” It was at that point that I concluded “They’re gone” and turned it off.
As my father told me a long time ago, “If you’re too open minded, your brains will fall out of your head.”
FWIW I can’t see the Bloomthingie guy being permanent. Ratings trends will be out in a couple of weeks.
A freeper on another thread said Obama couldn’t say “Under ME” so he left out “Under God”! LOL!
Signed the petition. And left a comment. Grew up with Quinn. This is absurd.
"Clear Channel just hired Democratic Governors Assoc. Executive Director, Nathan Daschle, son of tax cheat and former senator Tom Daschle as Executive VP for Political Strategy."
I have Fox and Friends on downstairs. There was a segment about Costo putting the Bible under the “fiction” section and Costo had issued an apology.
There is no question that there is a war on Christianity going on in this country.
This past July, SiriusXM Satellite Radio announced that Bell would launch a new, live, nightly call-in show, "Art Bell's Dark Matter," in September.
But since Bell's new program Sept. 16 premiere, there have been, according to Bell on his website, many problems with streaming his show.
Thanks very much for the tip on their appearances! I’ll have to check to see if I am off work December 6; if so I’ll drop by the Canonsburg hair salon to say hi to Q&R.
Mr S and I get Coast to Coast to listen to while we sit around the fire when the weather is nice. I remember George Noory mentioning that Art Bell was starting a new show on Sirius.
Boy, that C2C show sure does shy away from criticizing Obama AT ALL! However, in the last few months, I’ve noticed that there have been a couple of guests on who have done so. Usually they get interrupted. I like John B Wells though. He tends to be more conservative, and he has a hard time leaving the politics out of the discussion!
I concur...he certainly has “G-d” issues.
I think it was Wilson who was at the 50th Gettysburg Anniversary; Kennedy at the 100th. DearLeader had a “meeting” w/ “executives” at the Four Seasons, so he couldn’t hop into Marine1 and take the 65 mile trek to S. PA.
If WPGB thought they had poor ratings with Q&R wait till they see what Bloomdummy draws!
I think he is a placeholder...maybe an entire format change after the first of the year.
Mrs p6 had a surprise for me a couple of minutes ago. Because she has helped out at the local library she can get in on new books before they are generally available.
She brought home Sarah’s new book, “Good Tidings, Great Joy.”
Now if I could get the money together to buy Sarah’s Ford Expedition mayormobile from when she was mayor of Wasilla. It’s being auctioned on Ebay starting at 10k.
That would AWESOME! so if they are doing a remote, they would be rehired by a local Pgh station:) hmmm...the plot thickens!!!
I’m glad he didn’t go there. He needn’t be putting his filthy feet on sacred ground. He is an ingrate who doesn’t appreciate the sacrifices made there.
morning right back at ya! :)
LOLZ...”one nation, under Obama...”
Posted on Twitter yesterday “Gettysburg is HALLOWED ground not a welcoming place for a HOLLOW suited pol.”
I wonder at 200th Anniversary if historians will look back and say “another Obama negative, how did he get elected twice?”
I thought he was back in Parumph. Could be wrong.
FWIW a long time ago before he made it he used to call me while I worked the nightshift at WSHH. He was looking for a gig and wanted me to put a word in for him. He would fax me stuff and we’d talk for hours.
He was interesting but having a tough time in his life. Often he was ...under the weather. Wish I had kept in contact with him.
I’m glad. I don’t want him anywhere near where I might have to breathge the air he exhales.
As far as G-d issues, I think maybe G-d has had it with rats in high places.
Glenn Beck would do well to build a 500,000 watt transmitter in the desert of Utah
What if WPGB announced they were going to broadcast Q&R from their studio and announced they'd need help paying them and would the public be willing to help?
This is like health care ....
We rely on insurance to pay our bills and we rely on syndication to pay our personalities ...
What if .... IF, mind you ... what if we simply paid for what we wanted ?
Sorry knarf, I couldn’t get the link to work. I’m having problems with my computer or maybe it’s the mouse.
Anyway, he’s gone after six weeks???? What the heck? I don’t get Sirius, so didn’t know. I wonder what the heck is going on?
What I don’t understand a out the Gettysburg snub, is that Dear Leader could have used the ceremony to his advantage. Could have done one of his “Hopey/Changey” speeches and gotten the styrofoam columns outta storage in WH basement. Gotten his mojo back—and take ObamaCare OFF the headlines (for a day or two at least). So either Barry has TOTALLY lost his edge (is suffering some form of depression/anxiety issues) OR he TRULY does have pathological issues w/the military, US history, Lincoln.
As an aside, aren’t there stories about Lincoln (or maybe the Mrs) HAUNTING the Lincoln bedroom & WH?
I signed the petition - thank-you for the link!
If CC did “dump” the BIG 3 talkers...then I really would invest in extra rolls of Reynolds Wrap. How many sports talk shows can one regional have?
Mark Madden gives me the creeps. Not a radio voice and EVERYTIME I have son in car w/me after school he HAS to listen to MM for the sports scoop (fantasy teams) and every other ad is for “gentlemens’ clubs” and what noted “dancer” will be appearing. And if not MM, there are ONLY so many retired Stillerz to go around to get their own talk shows.
Well, Lincoln might have cost his slaveselling family back in Kenya a few shekels when he signed the Emancipation Proclamation. zero holds a grudge, you know.
Sneakers - I also got an email from Rose. Text:
You guys are blowing us away;
Your support — your letters — your tweets — facebook posts
have touched us deeply. Some of the messages have been so moving
We love you guys.
In the email she also has the Dec 6th live date too. So I am hoping!
“What I dont understand a out the Gettysburg snub”
Listening to Mark Levin this a.m. a caller I think, correctly explained the imposters reason to not visit Gettysburg. His being there would demonstrate the race unity in this country and race baiting poverty pimps have not platform without the division.
But what struck me was the 'coincidence' of Q&R, Bell and XM / Clear Channel et al.
If Rush, Beck, Hannity and etc’s are dumped, you know they’ll be comin’ up your driveway very soon.
Just got to work. Listened to WPGB for a few minutes before I got in here. GACH!!!!! Two guys bickering over - not “OBAMACARE” but the “ACA”. That’s the new thing - DON’T call it ‘obamacare’. One was all for it, the other not. Although, I do believe the one who was against it was probably just playing the part. It almost sounded like a stage play where they were playing roles. What a load of crap!!! If the libs didn’t have a part in this, I would be very surprised! They wanted Q&R off the air BAD!!!
Morning (afternoon?) Qwerty!
I just checked my e-mail and I got one too!
Did they take any callers?
I imagine they have to screen out many, many angry Q&R fans.
I just listened for a few minutes after I parked my car. That was enough to make me really angry. They were still bickering when I turned of the radio. No callers. I couldn’t stand listening anymore anyway.
If I didn’t have high blood pressure before, I do now!
Yes, Bloomdaddy has to be just a stopgap. He was hired to do a local issues show in Wheeling. Very much out of his element in syndication. My guess is Clear Channel is preparing to flip ESPN sports to FM, as has been done in most other cities. Right now KDKA-FM is running away with that audience and they want to get back in the game.
That would make Rush a free agent and kick the door wide open for anybody who wants to start a new talk station.
Art Bell only lasted a couple of weeks on XM.
A sudden and mysterious demise.
what the heck, how can there be no Quinn and Rose? thanks for link to petition.
That doesn’t show as a secure site on my ‘puter. Will stay tuned.
Quinn & Rose have been the voices of reason & sanity that helped me through some tough times, including 9/11 — when there was otherwise NO reason, NO sanity.
Thank God for you, Jim & Rose, and may He bring you something even better.
// If CC did dump the BIG 3 talkers...then I really would invest in extra rolls of Reynolds Wrap. //
It’s good that you’re sticking with the name brand. The cheaper brands have holes that allow beams to pass through. I wouldn’t be caught dead with them.
Wow! Thanks for the post! Gives me hope. They were obviously doing extremely well in Rochester, NY. as well!
In a possibly related item....Clear Channel decides to un-cancel obnoxious lefty talker Randi Rhodes.
“After previously announcing they would end their relationship with her at the end of 2013, the nation’s largest radio syndicator has decided to keep progressive radio talker Randi Rhodes on air into next year after all.
According to an email announcement with the subject line “Randi Rhodes Show Continues!”, as sent to radio station affiliates that carry Rhodes this morning, Premiere has apologized for their previous announcement earlier this week. That announcement, first reported on Wednesday by Politico, indicated that they would not be renewing Rhodes’ contract as of year’s end.
“In a happy turn of events, we are pleased to announce that Premiere Networks will continue to produce and distribute The Randi Rhodes Show,” reads the new email sent Friday morning by Premiere’s Peter Tripi, Senior Vice President of Affiliate Relations.”
Mr. Daschle digging in and getting right to work I see.
