Wow Dori! Bloggin and broadcastin at the same time. Fruitcake.

Tommy008

again "Dori"- test quetion- What happened ( malfunctioned) at your alcoholic uncle's funeral that was so hysterically funny you had to mention it on air? if you can't answer you're not Dori.

lukobe

liz sez "It is okay to pronounce your words correctly, Frank. It isn't 'thinkin'' or "talkin'.'"

sure it is...how "careful" is your everyday speech?

Tommy008

Let me amend my response to your "Tommy, don't listen." comment, Suits. I don't normally listen to you anymore, but if I chose to listen to you from time to time out of perverse fascination, I will. Don't tell me who to listen to or who not to listen to, you frigging control freak. What do you think this is- KVI? As an obvious avid reader of this blog, you're welcome to chime in whenever we chap your thinskinned hide, but keep in mind you'll be debating with us, not your normal KVI pinheads, who you like to dominate.

It, A True Progressive

Tommy--I never listen to Suits-008, but know all he says is airing hypocracy again.

Tommy008: "I don't normally listen to you anymore, but if I chose to listen to you from time to time out of perverse fascination, I will."

What? Sounds like John Kerry who voted for it before he voted against it. In the case of Tommy008, a paraphrase if you will. I normally don't listen, only though, when I am listening.

This my blather-addict friends is the reason our party is out to lunch with Jim Jones as th cocktail waiter.

Andrew

Know thy enemy.

tj

by the way - you're welcome for the webb tip ;p

audioslave

That wasn't Dori up there posting, I checked that out too.

Andrew

Dori never ever never ever posts here. He will never post here.

sparky

Eric has been sharing his gum, I see.

Flluffycat

You're right, Andrew. Dori has no guts and would never let the unwashed lefties have at him in a venue in which he can't hang up on anyone.

Andrew

When actual radio hosts participate it gets too wierd. It's like talking to your lobster before you eat it.

Once again I ask....How are you checking these names out? Why won't you answer me, audioslave? That seems suspect to me.

Critter

BTW...you're welcome, joanie.

Bellingham Bob

Everyone talks about ratings but where the hell does one find them? How the hell do they know that I'm listening? I doubt Dori is the most popular show in the afternoon. It's probably Hannity.

I was joking with you Critter.
When Fremont said you might be a T-8, I found that humorous, so I just played along with it. Relax, take it easy.

But I did e-mail Dori a while back and asked him if he ever posted here, he said no.

Blogs Suck

Yeah, I emailed Webb and Pate and asked them if they ever posted here and they said no.

Dumb ass audio slave...what the hell does that mean anyway?!? Dork.

audioslave

"Dumb ass audio slave...what the hell does that mean anyway?!? Dork."

Blogs Suck:

Your ignorance of pop culture is only surpassed by your obvious lack of insightful thought.

Andrew

Blogs Suck is a coward.

blathering michael

I NEED TO TELL EVERYBODY: DORI MONSON, LOU PATE, DAVE ROSS, WOULD NEVER POST IN THESE THREADS...ANYBODY PURPORTING TO BE THEM ARE FAKES. I CAN'T ALWAYS ERASE FONIES ALL THAT FAST, SO JUST KNOW IT...THE LAST THING DORI WOULD DO IS MAKE A MAJOR PROGRAMMING ANNOUNCEMENT HERE, OR REACT TO ANYONE'S COMPLAINTS- HE'S A NEVER LET'EM SEE YOU SWEAT KINDA GUY.

Barkless in Seattle

>>>They are radio hosts not journalists"

Unless you are Bill O'Reilly who calls himself a journalist when it suits the occasion, or when he likes to feel important.

joanie

I remember Erin posting here . . . when she was asking us to listen to her show. I'm pretty sure that was her, wasn't it?

Also, there was one post that sure sounded like Pate. So, you had me on that one. "Love ya, Seattle" or something like that. It just sounded like a effen goodbye from him.

Critter

I know Bryan Styble posted here, but maybe he doesn't count as a radio host. ;-)

sparky


So---now there is videotape showing Bushie being told all about the anticipated damage Katrina would cause..sort of blows a hole in his excuse that he didn't have any idea the levee's would fail.

What he doesn't realize is that if he had just apologized, his approval ratings would have leaped ahead.

Blogs Suck

Slave..."insightful thought"...you are a dumb ass. You read this blog and you are raising the issue of insightful thought? This blog is for morons. Who the 'f' cares about stupid talk show hosts?

Read a book.
Go to school.
Get a life.

sparky

so why are YOU here then?
Homework all finished for the night???

Tommy008

Aren't you sick of asses who tell you to "get a life"?. Could anything possibly be less original?

Garibaldi

Less original? Yes Tommy008. From reading your endless posts, obviously you lack originality. The previous poster was correct, you do need a life, especially since you were compelled to address the comment.

audioslave

Read a book.
Go to school.
Get a life.

Does watching American Idol count? Hurry and let me know cuz its just came on.

Oh BTW, Blogsucks, a sphincter says... what?

sparky

heh...good one

Fremont

" NEED TO TELL EVERYBODY: DORI MONSON, LOU PATE, DAVE ROSS, WOULD NEVER POST IN THESE THREADS...ANYBODY PURPORTING TO BE THEM ARE FAKES." Listen to Bla'M, people....he breaks bread (and maybe wind) with these guys! Bla'M is an Aries, impeccably honest! Joanie, my Taurus intuition TOLD me you are a Capricorn! And Sparky is an Aquarius with Scorpio rising (?)

sphincter

What?

Fremont

" It's like talking to your lobster before you eat it." Andrew, that's hilarious...you otta write for John Stewart!

sparky

nooooo Im a Scorpio with blood pressure rising...

Andrew

Thanks!

Fremont

Well, damn, Sparks...I KNEW you were a Scorpio, but didn't think you'd admit it! (I have some great drugs for your blood pressure....stop reading the news and gimme a call.)

Liz

"liz sez "It is okay to pronounce your words correctly, Frank. It isn't 'thinkin'' or "talkin'.'"

sure it is...how "careful" is your everyday speech?"

Well,Luko, thanks for asking, I am very careful in my everyday speech.

However, I don't see your point as I am not the one being paid as a professional communicator. His lack of articulation smacks of laziness and a desire to build a "folksy" rapport. Sounds like he had GWB as a speech coach.

sparky

I am very PROUD of my Scorpiopity!

Fremont

Me, too, Sparky!

Dana

Here come the Mariners!...and there goes Dori's (artificially inflated) ratings.

Fremont

Liz sez: "Sounds like he had GWB as a speech coach." Yes, I'm a grammar-nazi, but GWB's Yaley-turned-cowboy patois is painful! It drives me wacko to hear him droppin' his g's and pollutin' his pronunciation ..."Democracy's goin' good in Eye-raq" and "We're doin' all we can, Brownie"; and if I hear W say "in harm's way" one more time....!! His corruption of our language reflects his corruption of our country!

Bryan Suits

Jeezus Tommy008,

WHO'S the control freak? Calm down.
BTW- what's a "ercollection?"

Tommy008

haha Suits. What a card . I knew you'd make some smartass remark about my obvious typo, from which anyone can understand what I meant . Really makes you seem intelligent(not). That's one of the reason's you're disliked . You never grew out of that twerpy junior high, smartass thing .ahahahahaha Thinskin Suits. By the way, remember what I said about you always having to have the last word? Thanks for proving my point ol' "Thinskin". Remember , you're debating with the big kids here, Suits, in the dining room, not the KVI pinheads at the card table in the kitchen.

Tommy008

sorry- reasons , not reason's.

sparky

I have to say, Michael, I am very upset that Wunda Wunda died mysteriously! I watched her every day and I even sent her a picture and she read my name while looking through her Magic Mirror.

Another piece of my childhood, gone. sob!

ExDem

Wow, that Tommy008 really got the best of Bryan Suits, huh?

By the way, did anyone catch The Tommy008 Show on radio tonight? I just can't find it on dial anywhere........

Tommy008

You're right Exdem, I just don't have what it takes to dominate and impress a bunch of undereducated KVI pinheads with Heehaw music, jumior high school smartass humor and 'tude, heman shooting range type stuff, and manly military talk. hahahahahah give me a break.

Tommy008

junior

ExDem

Wow, now you got the best of me too! Such a formidable force on this blog.

WARNING to all people that may raise Tommy008s ire:

Be careful what you post, lest you suffer one of those sophisticated "hahahahahah" bombs.....

Scrilla

Suits says check out this Tommy008 piece of self importance.

He was right.
You're pretty thinskinned yourself Tommy.

    • 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.
