Quinn and Rose is a conservative political talk show. It is syndicated, by Clear Channel Radio from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The show is done by Jim Quinn with "color commentary" from a woman known as Radio Rose (Rose Somma Tennent). It is broadcast from 6 A.M. to 9 A.M., while some affiliates replay the first hour from 9 to 10. Also on XM Radio channel 166 (America's talk).
The program is designed to appeal to political conservatives. Quinn exposes liberals, the IRS, big government, radical environmentalists, the bias of the mainstream media, and outspoken Hollywood actors. He promotes issues such as the right to bear arms, the FairTax, Christian values, alternative media, and the military, real estate schemes, retail gold purchases, sex enhancement pills, and personal appearances. Issues Quinn discusses from a conservative point of view include U.S. domestic politics, world affairs, science, economics, and social issues. Rose predominantly takes stances on issues concerning her spiritual faith with regards to politics, religion, family values, social problems, and education.
The show has a unique 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:
The usual bumper music is Monster by Steppenwolf, Eminence Front by The Who, Stranglehold by Ted Nugent, Cradle Will Rock by Van Halen, La Grange by ZZ Top, Soul Shaker, Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy) by Big and Rich, and Panama by Van Halen, American Radio by Carolina Rain and (on Fridays at the top of the hour) Working for the Weekend by Loverboy.
Starting in Pittsburgh, the show has been syndicated mainly through the eastern United States. At its peak the show had eighteen affiliates. Most affiliates replaced the show with local or barter syndicated programming, while other FM affiliates went to music formats. The show originates from WPGB.
