live interview program that offers a glimpse into the unique people, places
and things that make the Lower Columbia-Pacific Region unique.
The topics on TOOTS (Talk of Our Towns) vary: a guest from a worthwhile
non-profit addressing an upcoming educational workshop, a quirky
author with a newly published tome. Perhaps a pirate living aboard ship in
the Ilwaco Harbor. TOOTS explores the eclectic and far-reaching interests
of the Coast Community Radio audience.
Donna Quinn is the author of a children's book and president of
Quinnessential Connections, a consulting and team-building company. She
is a volunteer with the Astoria Co-Op and Lower Columbia Hospice; and is

In 2010, she joined the Board of Directors of the Tillicum Foundation.
Donna appreciates the authentic grittiness of Astoria and likes living in a
walkable town with a real working waterfront.
