Left wing or Liberal? Neither one fit him. I think the work FREAK best describes him and his show. My God, I listened to him 2 times and that has to be the biggest waste of time ever. Complete dribble. It is just Blah,Blah, Blah.

I don't think he has any strong political views in any direction. He doesn't seem to cater to that audience. I think his show is rather directionless actually. It's really a show of "call me and tell me what's on your mind". Imagine passing through the area and stopping at a local hardware store where a bunch of retired guys sat around drinking coffee and were talking about current events and their opinion of them, that's what JQ is. He frequently talks beyond his scope of knowledge on any given subject, but it is entertaining to a degree.

Mr Reynolds, you said it the best. This has to be the most amount of inane dribble that has ever been broadcasted. I love talk radio and hearing about local issues but I would rather listen to grass growing than Mr Quantance. I am sure he is a good man but stimulating local conversation would be nice to hear. It really isn't about him being liberal or conservative it is about him being applicable and interesting. A republican freak or a liberal freak doesn't matter a freak is still a freak.

The first time I heard this mess I honestly thought it was a comedy sketch but after a while I realized it was supposed to be a serious talk show. How sad it is.

Personally, I love this show. I don't always agree with John (or many of his callers) when it comes to politics, but that isn't what I listen to the show for anyway. I listen because it has the feel of friends and neighbors standing around my kitchen chatting. Of course it seems "directionless", most real life conversations aren't scripted. One minute you're talking about Westboro Church (ugh!), the next minute your talking about how best to treat tomato blight (yay!). There's something for everyone usually, but more importantly, it's an opportunity to get to know what's on your neighbor's minds these days.

I'm a fan.

Seems to me John has made an impression on you folks that do not like him because you seem to know so much of what was said. Can you tell me what Sean Hannity said yesterday, or Bill Oreilly? I consider myself an independent conservative, and I personally like to listen to John's show. No, it's not always what we believe talk radio should be, but it is what I like, and a lot of other folks as well. So, if you don't like it, don't listen, but don't trash what you don't understand either. After all, he's been around these parts for a long long while because I've been listening since the late 90's. Therefor he must be doing something correct.

I think he's terrible! Aimless, pointless, talentless dinosaur. He takes a position, then flip flops to agree with the caller, no matter the side they're on. Ever heard of music? If WFHG can't do better than this guy, dig out the old turntables and let him spin records if you want nostalgia!

This show has the absolute worst technical support of anything I've ever listened to. The first 20 minutes are invariably plagued w/ technical issues with the sound, echoes, dropped calls, dropped audio and just general screwups. What the he|| is wrong with the "support" staff assigned to this program?

In my opinion, John does an ok job with the show most of the time. At least he is able to talk about local issues, unlike most syndicated shows that hog the airwaves. Sometimes, though, he seems to be stuck in the 1960s mindset - like most people his age - when he needs to move forward and accept younger, fresher viewpoints. Also, the allegedly cheap radio station that uses his services needs some better bumper music, but I wouldn't hold my breath!

Technical problems and aimless talk aside, the Quaintance show is a good show. Why? Because his show is one of the most open minded on the air. I've been listening to talk radio since 1994, and I've heard about every right wing and left wing radio show you could name, and frankly most of them are just one sided bullcrap repeated over and over and over again. His show is a breath of fresh air, because he isn't too far to the left or the right, and he allows people to make their point when they call in whether he agrees with it or not. Someone like Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Bill O'Rielly, will just talk over them or hang up on them if they don't agree with the mindless crap he is spewing. Anyone on NPR just won't air an opposing call.

To anyone who just wants to dismiss the show, fine, there is an easy fix...don't listen. Keep listening to what the Wacky Radical Left or the Christian conservative right want you to hear, lord knows many more will be joining you. I'll stick to listening to John's show. Hey Fox News and MSNBC are popular, that doesn't make them worth a crap.

Both parties and their media cronies are lying to you, learn to think for yourself.

Did you hear this radio host yesterday calling Christians closed-minded and lots of other derogatory names? All because they have faith and believe that God created the earth and humans. Wow, I was shocked, that in this area he could keep his position talking about Christians in such a way.

I am totally shocked at the topics and position that John has taken over the last few years. I heard the show yesterday that "diogenes-light" references. I can't believe that WFHG continues to keep him on the radio. Many people believe in God, especially in this area. He has chosen to take an obstinate stand concerning science and creationism. He literally stated that any Christian that believes in Creationism is foolish. That Mr. Quaintance is the entire supposition of the complete belief in God and His Word. You apparently choose to listen and have faith in man and carbon dating, something that continues to be dis-proven rather than God. You have that choice, but don't call Christians foolish. I will expect you to be on the air this December 25 since belief in God is foolishness. You have no reason to celebrate a holiday that means nothing to you. Tonight, John chose to attack people and disconnect callers. Apparently, John is unwilling to listen to his own words. He challenged the frequency of my use concerning the word "shallow". If he pressed rewind on the moments prior to my statements, he would realize that he used it several times; hence, the reason why I used it several times. How many times did he use the derogatory comment "fat people" or he is "fat". Sadly, many in our area continue to support him and agree with his comments and apparently are afraid to confront his tactics. He did not address my comments concerning as recently as 10 years ago Americans would have never voted for a black man for president (or if he did I did not hear it, since he disconnected my call). And yet, our President and Commander in Chief is black. I know I can change the channel; however, WFHG needs to consider how he represents them.

The real joke is WFHG. My God what a waste of humanity...and you wanna talk about human waste, talk Neal Boortz. Even his name sounds like a fart. There are few people that irritate me like him. I am certain that I would pummel him into absolute submission and then pummel him some more. I'd film it too and send it to his family as I am certain that they don't care for him either,

WFHG is CRAP radio, period. The staff is absolute Human Garbage. No offense

Tanks for an excellent post. I agree with all of it except this : Most people in this area believe in God

No they don't. They just say that they do. If you want to find the highest concentration of evil, go to church on Sunday morning in the tri cities.

It's like they never even heard of God. They certainly don't know Christ. They have zero compassion for their fellow man and the poor and they don't even try to hide it. Being callous is applauded.

They are truly ugly folks and their pitiful little lives personify their uselessness. Their leaders like Ron Ramsey has led this area to being a wasteland of Stupid for a quarter century and the worst is yet to come.

Just saying

I would agree with you that many churches are callous to their neighbor's needs - therefore lacking God's love. It does not mean that many people in our area are not God-fearing people (it simply means that many churches are missing the point of why they were erected to begin with and that many church leaders are leading their people astray by not teaching the real Word of God). I do appreciate your comment and welcome further comments concerning your thoughts. Do you believe that this is area is a seedbed for evil? If so, do you believe anyone in America demonstrates true faith in God? I am thankful for your candor and await your response.
