~ David Goldstein will be filling in for Frank Shiers tonight (Friday, May 11) from 9p to 1a. At 9, he'll speak with liberal pundit Cliff Schecter about flip-flopping Republicans.
~ Very, very, impressive. We speak of course of KIRO's exclusive, live coverage of Sanjaya's triumphant return to Federal Way. That's what the Ron & Don Show is for! If you missed it, here's KIRO's Trey Thomas with the hard hitting interview.
~ So whatever happened to Fred Ebert? He was KIRO's professorial, libertarian, evening guy a few years ago who knew everything. We've always gotten old fans of his asking that question. Well, we found him: he's in Denver at KOA850AM doing a Stump the Professor show on Sunday Mornings at 10. You can get podcasts of his show here. See his webpage here. Or write to him at: firstname.lastname@example.org
~More from that infamous KOMOphobic meeting: according to Bonneville research: "KVI is dead," and KTTH is "doing great." The Truth? KVI made a minor gain in the Winter book and KTTH took a full point dive.
~ We haven't played the koo-koo keyword game lately. That's where we list the strange and unflattering words or phrases entered into the Google search box that brought searchers to Blatherwatch. We definitely have phrases with the word "naked" tied up (so to speak); as well as 'booty,' or 'tushies.' Also 'nalgas,' which is Spanish for 'booty' or tushies. We've gotten several hunnerd hits from 'nalgas de America team.' As we have from some fool looking for "girls of WalMart. Or 'Dori and Star," the latter which is yet another way of saying 'ass,' with his dog. These words ensure us the Web traffic we yearn, rather than the traffic we earn.
~ And-oh-yeah, Dept: Bonneville geniuses said Mariner's baseball at KOMO is no big deal (especially after they dispatch those homos over there. "This is a football town," they say. Guess they'll have to find out for themselves about the baseball book, says our guy.
~ Banned in China? We are so jealous. Goldy (KIRO Saturdays, Sundays; 7-10p) has been banned in China! The mandarins have decided that his Horsesass.org blog can no longer be read by the Chinese people. He's been shouting about how melamine-tainted Chinese imports may have contaminated the human food supply. (actually, you can't shut him up about it) Banned in China! We are so jealous.
