Skip to comments.Fans of Quinn & Rose Daily Discussion - December 18, 2013

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!
Snap! One week until the celebration of the birth of Our Lord!
Wish they would get something squared away and get back on the air.
Me too Iron Munro. The speculation is that they are under a noncompete agreement for who-knows-how-long. I’m sure they will keep their fans updated when they have something concrete. I thought I heard that good things are in the works for them.
Fingers crossed and prayers up!
Morning radio is a desert without them.
Check out the warroom: www.warroom.com The links to their annual Christmas show is on there. It’s good to hear their voices.
Burn the podcasts to cd for the car ride in the am. It makes driving through the burgh possible.
I don’t understand. Q&R get cancelled, yet there’s still a six-month non-compete, so the earliest they can be on air again is May 18, 2014. Surprised we can still get podcasts. Merry Christmas to all.
What’s the scoop on Quinn and Rose - I hope they get back on the air ASAP.
If they want to move to Northern Michigan...we have a station for them. Owned by Tea Party Rebel Alliance.
A huge thanks to krizzy for the link to the podcasts!
Nice FR thread about a Ted Cruz/Tea Party video. Can’t link from my tablet.
Mr. KM had Cbs news on last night. The most brain dead news on the face of the earth. The big stories? Did you know there was a study to determine why penguins huddle? Yeah....they huddle....wait for it...TO KEEP WARM!!! Scott Pelley actually sounded impressed with this story. Oh and the Beatles are still a popular band!!!! QUINN AND ROSE SAVE US!!!!!!
I am, mercifully, busy in the kitchen baking and away from the tv. Meanwhile, another freeper mentioned a talk radio show in Wisconsin. Vickie (I think?) McKenna. I was listening to one of her podcasts last night. She’s really good. She’s not our Quinn and Rose, but she held my attention. No stupid banter like the “Mornings on the Mall” guys on WMAL that I have been forced to listen to. I really despise stupid banter.
Good morning n’@!
Penguins?!? Huddling?!? I maybe Coach Bylsma was just drawing up a play for Sid and GENO n’@...
(sorry could not resist)!
The LamestreamMedia truly is lame...my guess, Dear Leader approval numbers are SO LOW that glorifying his 4mil vacant plans was a tad risky...so editors opted for “nature” story.
You know what I miss...not as much as Quinn/Rose’s well prepped monologs...their theme songs! Heard “Another Brick in the Wall” in car channel surfing and thought “Education Heads Up...”
LOL!!! When Pelley revealed the results of this amazing study I burst out laughing!!! And he kept that poker face anchormannvoice like this was so bloody important!!!! Yoi and double yoi
The theme songs for sure! I like Chinese....me and Mrs Jones....smoke smoke smoke that cigarette.....
Quinn & Rose, still engaged and still busy. I have it on good authority that they fully intend to get back on the air as soon as possible and I’m sure they’ll communicate when that is going to happen; five months and counting until their non-compete clause will allow them to re-enter the market.
I did get the following from Jim and Rose recently and thought I’d share it here for those of you who might like to show up and show your support:

Rose will fulfill her commitment to Conservative Tours. She does not make a promise without following through. Several listeners had already signed up for the tour before the show was cancelled but she felt it important to be there for them. She was able to work this out with all parties involved so as not to disappoint those that signed up. There is still lots of room for more people.

They celebrate Christmas!
Who woulda thunk it?!
I CAN’T STAND THE STUPID! THE COUNTRY IS DROWNING IN STUPID!!!
BTW I warned an older woman co worker about the coyotes because she arrives before daybreak.
First she said coyotes are only in rural areas way out west.
Then she said even if there was a coyote here it’s just like a puppy and wouldn’t hurt a human.
BONUS: I got a better look overnight. There were two and they weren’t coyotes. They are coywolves/eastern coyotes, a hybrid of a coyote and a wolf. Shortly after I saw them this morning a police car arrived and the officer was checking the tracks. That means other people have seen them.
What, pray tell, is the "Cyber gumband SNAP!" list?
And, can anyone supply the link to Jim Quinn's twitter, please? I was under the impression, that Jim didn't have one, but that others had 'hijacked' his name.
Feel free to stop in anytime and chat with us!
Since this thread started as a Pittsburgh-oriented thread (Q&R home city), we use a bit of Pittsburgh lingo. A ‘gumband’ is Pittsburgh-ese for rubber band. One of our members suggested we call it a cyber-gumband snap’ list instead of a ping list. Many of us are or were from Pittsburgh. Since then, we have welcomed many FRiends from all over. So, I ‘snap’ everybody with the cyber gumband every morning to let them know the thread is posted!
Jim is warroom @warroom
Quinn’s recent tweets seem to confirm that:
a) they are under a six-month noncompete
b) they were fired (official statements notwithstanding)
Interestingly 104.7 is running a Bloomdaddy promo in which he rails against animal rights wackos. Trying desperately to make him sound like Quinn.
“BTW I warned an older woman co worker about the coyotes because she arrives before daybreak.
First she said coyotes are only in rural areas way out west.
Then she said even if there was a coyote here its just like a puppy and wouldnt hurt a human.”
Maybe she’s a future Darwin award winner!!
Yeah, no kidding - unless the contract included firing under the non-complete claus. I haven’t had the “pleasure” of listening to ‘ol Bloomy - but if he’s as bad as people have said...is that really competing? :)
My Mom really loves Q&R - and may sign up for twitter just to hear from Jim.
Drowning in stupid!!!! So true. I could feel my brain cells commit hari kari.
Running out to Lowes after work to stock up on 60 Watt bulbs. Get’em while they’re hot! You won’t be able to after the first of the year - or the 40 watt bulbs either!
You will still be able to get rough surface bulbs..stronger the the ones being banned...
On tablet and sitting grandkids. Maybe pass this around because I am on a tablet.
The guy is knowledgable about Pgh radio. Years...decades ago he was my intern. Not that I endorse him but he has been persistant.
You beat me to it!!!
You got it Steve! Welcome!
Check out prisoner6 post #32!
Very classy of him not to blog lurid speculation about what’s happening at The Fan.
What a fantastic link/report ... thanx, M’Lady.
