About Quinn & Rose II
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.
