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.

the skweeky voiced sytman and boze are a poor replacement for siegel. They remind me of all those pimply faced hillsdale college grads who come into conservative radio as producers and end up bantering with the real host until they fill in or in this case get their own shows. i was no fan of seigel but this juvie bantor heaps me.


does anyone know who the blond bombshell Siegel has been seen with. A real head turner with big brown eyes!


Siegel has a brand new "temporary" gig! He's now on WDAY-AM in Fargo, ND. Two veteran hosts left 'DAY abruptly last month to return to the station they were fired from (KFGO-AM in Fargo) the year before. Apparently Siegel is a close friend of 'DAY host/GM Scott Hennen (who occasionally fills-in for another buddy, Sean Hannity). Siegel is supposed to be in Fargo only through the end of February, however word on the street is that he's here to stay.


Wow, Seattle to Fargo--now THAT'S a step up in the world!


I hear he will be broadcasting from Milton...


I personally think Mike was great on Coast to Coast AM. Far better than George Noory.


Siegel is proof all one need be to work in the media is to be a jew.

Listened to Mike on KNWZ in Palm Springs for a week while he filled in. He is the BEST. Talk radio is the last hope for the first ammendment and Mike is a brave soldier in the war.

My conversation with Mike on KNWZ felt good to me and I thought the on-air call would be appreciated. I called again the next evening and learned I was banned from several stations. I called a number I found on the net and left a message for Mike that my calls to him were not allowed through. Several minutes later I received a call from a hysterical and abusive station manager and was accused of "harrassing one of his hosts" and was told to never call again and not even to listen to the several stations owned by the company because I'm a "hater." I guess no good deed goes unpunished.


didn't realize that Mike was having such a tough time holding gigs, ( I came him for the first time, by chance, when he was the host of "Coast to Coast. I'm not really into the 'paranoia' thing, but I listened every night because of Mike' soothing and 'regular guy' tone. I loved it! I got hip to Phil Hendrie waiting for Seigel's show to come on. I wish that they bring him back to "Coast". I really felt he did a great job. I stopped listening when Noory came about. I'm laughing , now that I read the prior article. Can you imagine your introduction to "Coast" under Seigel, and not the legendary Art Bell? Cheers.

    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....
