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-ping my Quinn & Rose-buds list! Posting early to share the e-mail I got - and I’m sure others on this thread did too. For those of you who are not on their e-mail lists, this is the e-mail sent from Rose:
QUINN AND ROSE UPDATES:
Dear Quinn and Rose listeners:
We continue to be moved by your loyalty and your support. So many of you have written to encourage us during this time. As you may know from reading media reports — we will remain off the air in the Pittsburgh Market for a brief period of time. Many of you have asked what our plans are thereafter.
We can tell you this; we are considering multiple exciting opportunities and we are confident that we will be back in your cars, homes and offices before you know it!
We miss you. We knew that we had a large audience and that our audience had a strong voice. However — we did NOT know just how large and how strong! You have touched us deeply.
Since being off the air, we have enjoyed the holidays, caught up on our sleep and watched something other than news programming! That’s a rarity for us. We very much miss bringing you our cutting edge take on politics and news of the world and we can assure you that this down time will be short lived. We are blessed with opportunity.
In the meantime, there are a few events that Rose was committed to before the show was pulled.
Her biggest concern is getting the word out without our normal platform. Please give the following serious consideration. She’d LOVE for you to join her on a fabulous excursion to Italy!
Thank you so much for your solidarity. We are honored to be appreciated by you!
Quinn and Rose
Thanks for sharing the email! Glad to hear that Q&R will be back soon. My morning drives are bad enough with the cold and snow; worse having to listen to bad radio.
Thanks for the Q & R note. I’m still waiting for them to get back on the air.
Multiple opportunities ... that news is so cool!
Thanks sneakers!!! Hopeful news for a dreary Sunday evening!
The problem is it's still all CC unless I'm mistaken. That means Q&R might be back on with CC. IF so why the no compete? Maybe just to keep them from going outside CC?
As I mentioned before stations sometimes take program rights but don't air them just to keep them from other stations. I think my stations did that with Boortz for a while.
With a predicted high today of 19 WE ARE NOW AT FREEPIN' 42 DEGREES AT 4 AM!
Don't get me wrong it's going to get cold but it shows how far off the forecasters often are.
Hmmm it’s 2F here and it’s still dropping.
Ugh! Stayed up to watch PART of Alaska the Last Frontier and then switched over to watch PART of The Curse of Oak Island (a subject that’s always fascinated me!). Stupid thing to do. I can’t stay up until 11:00 anymore. Now I’m dragging. I hope I can make it through the day today!
39 degrees here. It won’t last long, but I’ll take it anyway!
We just started watching Oak Island. Mrs p6 had never heard of it before. She was really getting into it!
Me too! I love a mystery!
Cold front went through here around 5AM. Went from 44 to 33 in less than an hour. Now at 28. Winds over 22mph.
Still dropping here, now, 1F...
Yep I figured it would be next month before we would see these kind of temps. Not bad getting paid for being wrong. What format will the X turn to? Nice to hear they will be back. Good morning all. Hows Mr S and Mrs P6 doing?
We dropped 11 degrees in an hour..
The X would still keep the Pens but anything else is just wild speculation. Mrs p6 is doing fine except for her age catching up to her, lol!
Good morning n’@!
GREAT QUINN and ROSE NEWS!
Quick post...as power is flickering & I gotta get my phone charged. We have 45 mph gusts and we dropped 14 (@25 now) since I first checked. Our SD had NO DELAY, and my son texted from bus that wind was swaying bus.
Yinz all be careful...and prayers for no power outages w/brutal wx that is coming.
Morning Greg! Mr S is doing well - thank you for asking.
Also remember to keep PastYourEyes, DollyCali, Mesta Machine and PaDad in your prayers.
Just checked, and we’ve already dropped from 39 to 30 since I posted an hour ago! Wind is whipping up out there too!
Hello—stay safe out there! Roads were getting bad when I was driving to work.
I hope my morning is not a harbinger for things to come. My side garage door froze shut and my car would barely start. Did manage to get it going, and it seems ok, but I’m a little worried about this afternoon when it’s supposed to go down to 12 degrees.
Hope no one loses power today.
I usually leave my house between 5-5:15 AM. Wind was howling & I could feel it moving the car - was glad it was still above freezing, as the roads were wet & I was hoping not to find black ice.
Its going to be brutal the next couple of days - so please do what you can to be safe. I have been having trouble finding rock salt/calcium chloride, but thankfully, the neighbor two doors down plowed our driveway with his little lawn mower tractor - Hubby has shoveled his mom’s walk (she lives right next door), so he was being nice, which is great - my Hubby had two surgeries on his torn rotator cuff & both failed...I can only shovel so much myself. Anyway -please all be safe.
You be safe too PenguinM! Not looking forward to the next two days! I’m looking out my office window and it’s snowing and wind blowing like crazy! Co-worker called in. She had double knee replacement surgery last spring and fall and doesn’t want to tempt fate. I don’t blame her!
-2F, wind 19mph, Wind Chill -23°F
Bill Bennett. Great guy. Strong Conservative.
But without a doubt, he hosts the most boring radio program on the planet.
And it’s heading our way!
Stay safe and stay warm AM!
i can’t wait till quinn’s return, mornings just ain’t the same without his awareness briefs / sense of humor.
