History

Before beginning his political morning show, Quinn spent a number of years doing voiceover work for WPGH-TV 53 and as a disc jockey at KQV in the 1970s, where he would befriend his eventual political mentor Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh worked at KQV and WIXZ/McKeesport, PA as a disc jockey under the name Jeff Christie. WPGH-TV Fox53 is the FOX television affiliate broadcasting in Pittsburgh. ... Rush Hudson Limbaugh III (born January 12, 1951) is an American radio talk show host and political commentator. ...


Quinn is best remembered in the Pittsburgh area as the nighttime screamer on KQV radio in the 1960s, during the station's peak as a Top 40 power. Quinn was hired from WING/Dayton in 1967 and had an immediate impact on the market. In 1968, he jumped at an opportunity to take a job in Philadelphia, but was back at KQV in less than a year. He stayed until 1972, then spent time in New York City at WPIX-FM. New York, New York and NYC redirect here. ...


He then moved to Buffalo, where in the late seventies he became known to listeners throughout the northeast on WKBW-AM, a 50,000 watt station that took requests from as far away as Norway. Quinn's final hour included a trivia game called "Stump The Audience," where the answers had been kept "in a sealed envelope on Funk and Wagnalls' doorstep since noon today." In an emotional farewell as he returned to Pittsburgh, Quinn said, "May I get lockjaw if I ever forget how much I appreciate the people who listen." Funk and Wagnalls is a publisher based in New York City. ... Technically known as trismus (Greek τρισμος, trismos, a grinding), lockjaw is a pathological condition in which the mouth is locked shut by contractions of the jaw muscles. ...


A Pittsburgh station, 13Q or WKTQ, lured him back in 1977 to capture the adults who had grown up listening to him on KQV. Quinn later moved to the midday slot at WTAE radio, an adult contemporary station in Pittsburgh. In 1983, he became half of "The Quinn and Banana Show" on B-94 FM, which ran in Pittsburgh, PA, until the late 1980s. Their format was teenie pop and junior high bathroom humor. While performing a skit for that show, he and his on-air partner "Banana Don" Jefferson were sued for sexual harassment for their antics, which were somewhat comparable to those of Howard Stern. They made a crude joke suggesting that newswoman Liz Randolph was adept at oral sex. Shortly thereafter, his FM morning show was cancelled. Quinn largely credits this lawsuit with "opening his eyes" and inducing his conversion to political conservatism. With his career as a pop-jock losing credibility with his advancing age, Quinn reinvented himself as a hometown Limbaugh clone.

Sexual harassment is harassment or unwelcome attention of a sexual nature. ... This article is a biography of Howard Stern as an individual; for information regarding his radio show see The Howard Stern Show. ... Oral sex consists of all sexual activities that involve the use of the mouth, which may include use of the tongue, teeth, and throat, to stimulate genitalia. ...


Quinn is a proponent of a Constitutional government that adheres to the guiding principles of the nation's founders. He claims to champion a smaller federal government and free markets. He regularly equates modern liberalism with Marxism. He commonly refers to "Quinn's Laws", a collection of statements that sum up his world view, such as "liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent" (i.e. the War on Poverty has led to even greater poverty)." The show, broadcast with co-host Rose Somma Tennent (aka "Radio Rose"), is live weekdays from 6 AM to 9 AM on certain affiliates; others replay the first hour after 9. It can be heard worldwide on the Internet via WarRoom.com. This article describes the government of the United States. ... Liberalism is an ideology, philosophical view, and political tradition which holds that liberty is the primary political value. ... Marxism takes its name from the praxis (the synthesis of philosophy and political action) of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. ...

Quinn's laws

Quinn has formulated a group of laws regarding the nature of liberalism and the behavior of its proponents. These are:

  1. Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent. Similarly, government bureaucracies never solve problems, they manage them and exacerbate the ones they created by interfering with market forces and processes.
  2. If you want to know what liberals are up to, pay attention to what they accuse the conservatives of.
  3. The amount of wealth in any given area is inversely proportional to the amount of Democrats running it.
  4. Liberalism only succeeds when the public is scared into believing that it will not survive without it.
  5. When liberalism conflicts with reality, reality must give way.
  6. Facts are the enemy of liberalism.
  7. Things are different when you are a Democrat [regarding his allegations of the media's ignorance towards Democratic scandals and misconduct].
  8. A Liberal is any person for whom two thousand years of human experience and history means nothing now that they are here.
  9. To liberals, intentions are more significant than the outcomes they achieve.
  10. Liberals never think what they are doing is wrong, they only think they haven't done enough of it yet or it is underfunded.
  11. "Profiling" is what groups call common sense when they have a problem they don't want to talk about.
  12. Democrats and liberals do not engage in debate, they try to silence you. If they engaged in debate, they'd lose.
  13. Democrats are political opportunists.
  14. Liberalism is based on unproven and/or disproven theory.
  15. Every culture is unquestionable except the West's.
  16. Liberals view the world the way they think it should be, not the way it is.

Show

On his WPGB 104.7 FM morning show, Quinn has discussed various conspiracy theories during the Clinton administration, including extensive coverage of Vince Foster's death, Juanita Broaddrick's alleged rape and the allegation that Clinton sold secret intelligence information to the Chinese government, typically referred to as Chinagate. In the lead up to the 2000 U.S. presidential election, Quinn posited that Clinton might enact martial law and remain as president indefinitely. Quinn was a major proponent of the Y2K threat, and advertised 'Y2K survival kits' on his show. He has recently alleged that Hillary Clinton is part of a New World Order conspiracy. He regularly calls prominent Democrats "Marxists". At one point, he interviewed a man who claimed to be a Catholic priest, who stated that the Clintons were demonically possessed. Quinn's format is gereraly right-wing. He critisizes liberals, the IRS, radical environmentalists, the alleged bias of the mainstream media, and oustspoken Hollywood actors. Quinn promotes issues such as gun ownership, the FairTax, Christian values, alternative media and the military. A conspiracy theory attempts to attribute the ultimate cause of an event or chain of events (usually political, social, or historical events), or the concealment of such causes from public knowledge, to a secret, and often deceptive plot by a covert alliance of powerful or influential people or organizations. ...

There is a call-in feature that allows listeners to debate and discuss issues with Quinn and/or Rose. A majority of the show consists of Quinn lecturing on a wide range of topics, generally being or related to one of the following: politics, science, economics, social issues, and world affairs. Rose predominantly discusses issues concerning Christianity in politics, religion, family values, social problems, and education.


"Heads Up" themes

The show has an unusual format in that it is, for the most part, divided into thematic "Heads Ups" (e.g. Liberal Heads-Up, "Euro-weenie" Heads-Up, ACLU Heads-Up), each with its own theme song (he seems to be growing tired of them now): The American Civil Liberties Union, or ACLU, is a non_governmental organization devoted to defending civil rights and civil liberties in the United States. ...

Altoona 1290 AM WFBG dropped Quinn's show in 2006 in favor of some local hosts. Quinn has said on-air that he holds no ill will toward the station and said he would have done the same if he was WFBG management and had the chance to bring in his eventual replacements.


In recent months, a small station in Rhode Island has began broadcasting his show, and he has talked about other potential stations in New England in the near future. In addition, a station in Alabama has picked up the show, indicating more national expansion is in the work.


Rumors of Quinn's show being picked up in Canada by the CBC have yet to pan out after the Canadian broadcaster announced its fall 2007 lineup.
