right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing

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.

I saw stock yard, Vinne on tv yesterday , man I can see why he won the ulgy radio talk show host this year , now if he can do something about his radio show , ( Ron and Don would work just fine )

I discovered 94.5fm (Super CFL) about six months ago. I immediately fell in love. Their play list is like nothing else on radio today, mostly obscure or long forgotten tunes of the 70's & 80's. But this is no KBSG or KJR, it is amateurish, upbeat and endearing. The stilted DJ banter (often consisting of strange facts & statistics straight out of the "weird newswire") always brings a smile to my face.

What a pleasure to hear unslick, unpackaged, inconsistent radio in this cookie cutter market.

Whenever I have had my fill of the talkers, 94.5 is my first stop. I can even retain my warm fuzzies for this eccentric little station in spite of the occasional canned commentary by kooky leftist Jim Hightower.

I was happy to hear someone else noticed the station that I thought was my little secret. It's a shame that CFL's pristine, refreshing programming will be sullied with even more off the wall leftist banter.


Hey, Michael B., please enlighten this(ohmygawd...as old as Joanie??!!) person how to access 94.5 on my radi-yo or streaming. What is Super CFL?

Michael B.

Hi Fremont: "Super CFL" is an eccentric little radio station that can be found in Seattle at 94.5 FM. While they used to focus on long lost tunes from the 70's and 80's, they have a new morning guy (Cisco) who is doing a lot of 50's stuff.

They have two different streams at http://cflfm.com/ , the Ocean Shores (KYA) stream and the 94.5 FM Seattle Stream. I have never listened to the Ocean Shores stream so I can't comment on it.


Wow. Progressive podcasting on K-Billy. That's like going to a Brodeur/Westneat live reading with no Q and A afterwards, just "Stuck in the middle with you," by Stealers Wheel.

BTW- after Procaccino mispronouncing Grant Wistrom's last name (note to Mikey: Grant plays football) and then regaling us with an amusing anecdote about relocating to San Fran for a theater company, yet retaining a love for the Cincy Reds! Whew!
I know KIRO is set to maximize their Seahawk coverage.
I can't wait for Dave to pay tribute by singing some G and S.
He will actually sound like Frasier Crane discussing the local Red Stocking baseball franchise.

blathering michael

Scriller; I know quite a bit about football- (it's the ball pointed on both ends like a rat turd- right?) it's this Sea Hockey everybody's talking about that I need to know more about...

    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....
