TWO PROMAX INTERNATIONAL GOLD MEDALLION AWARDS for “Most Innovative Radio Promotion,” “Outstanding Consumer Television promotion,” two Capital Region Emmy nominations and two national Telly Awards for video production are but a few of the accolades attributed to John Quinn’s extensive Marketing and Public Relations career. A thirty-year media veteran, John presently creates Public Affairs Marketing campaigns at ABC affiliate WJLA-TV, Washington, D.C., while writing songs in his spare time.
MUSICALLY JOHN WORKED IN THE RADIO INDUSTRY FOR 20 YEARS as an Air Personality, Music Director and Program Director spanning Adult Contemporary, Urban and Country music formats in St. Louis and Washington, D.C. Origionally from the Marlboro Projects in Brooklyn, New York, he played in several area garage bands, managed a college radio station then left the Big Apple in 1976 for his first radio gig in Youngstown, Ohio. Three years later he received Billboard Magazine’s “Top Special Program” award for his radio show in Lynchburg, Virginia.
After a near-fatal heart attack in 2003, Quinn decided to devote more free time to fun things. He picked up playing the guitar again and started a band at a church in Kensington, Maryland. That same year John began writing songs and later joined Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI). Some 30 songs and 3 demos later here are a few examples. Thanks for listening!
