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.

How about Dave Ross take the 12pm - 3pm slot, that would be a winning move.

The problem with Allen Prel is that he doesn't act like a normal person, he acts like a caricature of a sick old man who gives his producer the creeps. I can't expect anything great from a person like that so when I listen to him I know I'm gauranteed to be a little disapointed every time and it's just a matter of time until the charade ends and he's gone. In that way he reminds me of "Scoot", who was a short lived 9-12 host on KOMO in the late 90's.


"We were heartened to see liberal talker KPTK gain back a tenth point after losing two last month."

Boy, it's really kicking ass in the Peoples Republik of Puget Sound. I feel your pain, but if it can't make it here, it can't make it anywhere. As soon as George Soros quits righting checks, what then will they do?

Another insightful report, this is why I check what the BlatherWatch is up to several times a week.


Taking the easy and cheap way out to program a LOCAL radio station. There are far too many bean counters "programming" radio stations today, whether they are a talk station or a music station. The majority of these bean counters have NO clue about the broadcasting business. Certainly, there is a place for syndicated programs on a local station, but without any local voice a lister cannot find the "local" connection needed to be able to relate. Perhaps, the bean counters at Fisher (KVI) aactually being LOCAL owners got a clue about investing locally....Entercom (KTTH, KIRO), obviously doesn't get it and neither does Infinity (KTPK). When you go on the cheap expect to reap the fruit of what you have sown. NO audience. Seattle radio and TV were significally better when there were more local, pioneering broadcasters running the show. The out of town owners need to at least untie the hands local managements and purse strings to target "us" locals.


Life is too short to listen to crappy conservative radio! Thanks for doing it so I dont have to, Blathering Mike.

And I dont even want to think about Mike Webb in a bra....pass the brain floss, please..


I'm NO fan of Mike Webb, mostly because I am a conservative. But folks, he was a HORRID disk jockey at KIXI a few years ago.
Wonder if he got his bra caught in a cd player? Anyway, his act went "tits up" there.

I would like to have Erin Hart become a fulltime Kiro talkhost.


Erin, have you no shame....

    pacific nw talk stations

    • 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).
    • KOMOAM
      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
    • Washington State Radio Stations
      Comprehensive list of every danged AM & FM station on the dial.
    • KKOL am 1300 KHz
      Once a rabid right-wing talker, except for Lou Dobbs, it's all business....
