right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing
    Hearin lies the real heart of Washington State Republicans. Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.
  • Orbusmax
    inexhaustible Drudgery of NW conservative news
  • The Radio Equalizer
    prolific former Seattle KVI, KIRO talk host speaks authoritatively about radio.

This all depends on what Phelps Fisher does. The MSM loves going to him for a quote to what's on his mind.

John

Sounds like a sour grapes post from someone whose daughter was unceremoniously shown the door at KOMO-TV...

Itchy

If everyone who was unceremoniously shown the door at Fisher wrote a sour grapes post on this blog, the internet would get clogged.

Coiler

She also successfully won a resolution . That seems to be your sour grapes.

Dark & Stormy

OT:

Driving home shortly after 7:00 pm I heard Curley talking about the WSU pot smoking issue. Turned the radio on a minute ago and IT IS THE SAME SHIT! What happened to live radio??????

Makes me want to smoke a bowl .....

JimF

To answer your question, they are re-playing "The Best of Jon Curley."

Another night in which Curley is AWOL.

Darksecretplace

The Reckoning at the Plaza is indeed coming. One wonder's about the future of this very blog. With the dearth of local radio, why blog about it? It's feeling ....strained.

if that is an un-repainted wall sign for Fisher Flour, in an un-retouched photo, then it's amazing how vivid the colors still are on sign painting. "Blend's mah friend" as a slogan must have gone out at least by the sixties when the civil rights movement came in strong, so it has to be at least fifty years old, probably older. I'm saying that was taken somewhere around Chinatown , withthe Smith Tower in background.

DSP still has that sick "faces of death" photo for his whatchamacallit. Other talk hosts actors, singers, etc come back from their overseas military service and integrate their experiences in a healthy way into theor personalities, as a subordinated, small piece of their whole persona. This guy builds his whole world around his military experiences. Kind of a diminishing market for your "type" on the air, ya finding, Sparky, in your job-hunting. Tom Leykis is already trumpeting the specific day date of the return of his show, in April 2012 , one day after his CBS contract ends, so he must have something aleady signed on the dotted line with a network.

Tommy008

Have you considere ownign a high-end gun shop and shootin' range in Monroe, WA or Provo, Utah, Sparky? Not too much disffrent than your radio show - talking about weapons and bullet caliber to middle-aged white men for several hours a day

Tommy008

hey , while i'm at it, talking smack, why doesn't Medved just move to Israel and join his son, at least one of his brothers and his father. i don't consider Medved to be a desirable citizen of our country. I would much rather that Israel has to put up with him than us nice Americans.

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber
    • KIROFM 97.3
      Multi-format: news and nearly all local talk. This is where classic KIRO AM news talk radio went... hopefully, not to die. The home of Dave Ross & Luke Burbank, Dori Monson, Ron & Don, Frank Shiers, Bill Radke, Linda Thomas, Tony Miner and George Noory.
    • KUOW FM 94.9
      Seattle's foremost public radio news and talk.
    • KVI am 570 KHz
      Visit the burnt-out husk of one of the seminal right-wing talkers in all the land. Here's where once trilled the reactionary tones of Rush Limbaugh, John Carlson, Kirby Wilbur, Mike Siegel, Peter Weissbach, Floyd Brown, Dinky Donkey, and Bryan Suits. Now it's Top 40 hits from the '60's & '70's aimed at that diminishing crowd who still remembers them and can still hear.
    • KTTH am 770 KHz
      Right wing home of local, and a whole bunch of syndicated righties such as Glennn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Medved, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Lars Larsony, and for an hour a day: live & local David Boze.
    • KPTK am 1090 KHz
      Syndicated liberal talk. Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Ed Schultz, Randi Rhodes, Norman Goldman fill in the large hole to the left on Northwest radio dial.
    • KLFE AM 1590 kHz
      Syndicated right-wing 2nd stringers like Mark Levin, Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Dennis Miller and Hugh Hewitt inhabit this timid-voiced neighbor honker for your radio enjoyment (unless you're behind something large like Costco).

      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
    • Washington State Radio Stations
      Comprehensive list of every danged AM & FM station on the dial.
