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.

« A DESPERATE PLEA FROM ALLAN PRELL | Main | ron sims, liberal beer suckers, carolyn edmonds, john carlson, pecker toads and absolutely nothing about allan prell »

October 06, 2005



To repeat an earlier comment on another strand, Ventrella could get his words out. I'm sorry to say that Vinnie can't. His constant stuttering and apologizing in advance for what he's about to say gets on my nerves. It is a puzzle to me who is making these weird decisions.

Also, I asked on the other thread, why 710 has to be a mixed bag politically while 770 is a right wing station I think. (I don't listen to it so I'm assuming here.) I think 710 should go liberal and get Jaco back and become the reflective, interesting, and stand up station it used to be before all the macho schticks and and manipulative devices kicked in. There really is a dearth of intelligent liberal radio in the NW.

Finally, I agree that Shiers matched with Hart was pretty good because Shiers finally couldn't control his adversary. Hart was more than a match for his small mindedness. Their chemistry was pretty good although I think Shiers would eventually leave because Hart is better than he is. Still, wouldn't it be fun for a while? Give it the right time . . . how about Hart/Shiers replacing Webb?


Ah hah....so many of these names seen for the first time ARE his buddies from back East. So now the question is, how did they know he had gotten fired????? hmmmmmmmmmmmm?

Erin on the radio, any time, any day, is like fingernails on the blackboard...but, since I haven't listened to KIRO for ages, please feel free to do what you wish over there! heh...


What? You say many of these are buddies from the east coast? HUH? I've read all of the threads and would say maybe three said they listened to Allan in Baltimore. Please support your statement. These are Seattle lovers.

And BTW - I'm sure Allan made news in the local Baltimore tabs and websites. He WAS a fixture there for many years.

Nice try though....


Nice try? Try for what? I was merely commenting on something that Blathering Michael wrote above...

"His fan base, while perhaps small in Seattle, is much larger and more avid in the Baltimore, DC area where he was huge for 17 years. Beltway listeners are jumping into BlatherWatch comments threads in large numbers and dialing local Entercom Cheese, Jerry McKenna (206.726.7000 ext. 680) to offer computer assistance, after Prell complained the KIRO computers were down. "

Hi Sparky and Joanie. Did you two realize that you are the robots contrlolled by the "others"? Do you realize that Bush or Kerry or Bush or Clinton are all the same characters in a horribly macabre plot? No you don't! Look outside the box! You are being played! Liberals claim to be aware. Well then why can't you see this? Ask the professor what is next. He doesn't know and the reason he doesn't know is because he can't see! Good luck to you all. You certainly need it. Eric




I'm waiting for the meltdown....

Eric: I'm a liberal but I have me limits. I deleted your last post, and any more like that, and you're outa here.


KIRO has lost me also. Can't stand Dori since he swung so far to the right when Dave Ross left to persue political office.

As Joanie posted above, it would be great if Charles Jaco would return to this market. Does anyone know where and if he is currently broadcasting, and if his show can be streamed?

Hart & Shiers? I didn't hear the broacasts, but it does sound interesting.


my mind can hardly encompass the thought-just imagine Hart and Shiers, 6 to 9 M-F, Ross 3-6 and Charles Jaco 9to 12.

    • 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....
