I listened to Quinn and Rose every day before getting my wife off to work. We listened on my handheld ham radio as we ate breakfast. I listened on our small, portable AM/FM radio while we worked on improvements to rent our apartments out. When work took us to Cleveland and we couldn't listen on terrestrial radio, we streamed the show online and listened on my girl's laptop computer.
When I ran errands in Cleveland, I downloaded iHeartRadio to listen throughout the day. We'd listen as we got ready for work or on my days off. I'd listen to relax and hear Quinn's take on all of the mess going on. My wife listened to Quinn and Rose on her way to work on Sirius XM. I recently started planning my ham-radio setup so that I could try to get the Pittsburgh station with a tower antenna on my roof!
There are only a few shows that really give information without the horribly biased filtering that is rampant in media today. For me to work so hard to keep listening to a show in another state shows the value of opinion and entertainment that Quinn and Rose gave us on WPGB-FM the last 10 years.
Maybe they'll come back. After all, “Family Guy” was canceled after its first season and now dominates in all comedy formats. Perhaps there's still hope.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
