USA Shows: Ron O’Quinn
KBC Personality Ron O'Quinn has been inducted into the Georgia Radio Hall
Of Fame as a career acheivement inductee. Ron’s long radio career began at
WMGA in Moultrie, Georgia while he was still in high school.
After serving in the military as an Army Ranger, O’Quinn returned to his
home state and resumed his radio career at WVLD in Valdosta. He then
worked his way to WROD, Daytona Beach, Florida; WLCY, Tampa; WFUN, Miami;
WYLD, New Orleans, WUBE, Cincinnati and KYA, San Francisco.
An unusual career move took Ron O’Quinn out of the United States in 1966,
when he served as program director for Swingin’ Radio England, a pirate
radio station broadcasting from the North Sea off the British coast. This
job gave him the opportunity to accompany the Beatles on their U.S. tour
in August, 1966, and led to his induction in the Pirate Radio Hall of
Though he was out of radio for several years, Ron returned to the business
in 1987, when he syndicated a weekly show heard on 88 stations in the
U.S., Rock ‘n Roll Reunion.
Ron now has a weekly syndicated show, Rock ‘n Roll Rewind, which is heard
all over Europe on The Mighty KBC. This show is produced from his
Glenwood, Georgia home and a version of this weekly program also runs on
several radio stations in America.
