  • Talker's Magazine
    The quirky talk radio trade mag. Check the Talk Radio Research Project- it's not very scientific, but places on the top 15 talkers list (scroll down to Talk Radio Audiences By Size)) are as hotly contested as Emmys (and mean just about as much).

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.

What if Kiro and KTTH became one station What would the line up be : Ok here we go!
from 5:am to 9:00 Greg and Jane .
From From 9:00 to 1:00. the David and Dan Show .
From ,1:00 to 4:00 Dave Ross.
From 4:00 to 7:00 The Ron and Don show.
from 7:00 to 10:00 the lionel show.
from 10:00 to 1:00am Turi Ryder Show ( hooty hoo ! she is a BABE!)
FRom 1:00am to 5:00am Its the Scary Gary Show ! & The Wonder Chimp!up and down left and right in your face!!! with nightly interviews , DUDES with Mullets!
Also Chicks over 50 with tatoos
and as always cheap poker tricks after 2:00am ! Its a good line up Hay Tom at Kiro this ones on the house !!


The Adventures of Backwoods Boze and The Cocky Little Twerp The twins reached new lows yesterday when they had on a woman with an initiative designed to put Horse's Ass Tim Eyman behind bars. The potential ballot item would outlaw Eyman's asinine brand of state initiatives and make them felony strikes in Washington's three strike law. The thought of H.A. Eyman sharing a cell with Mike Webb truly brings joy to my heart. This wonderful lady, although perhaps not the most articulate of humans, was subjected to ridicule and laughter by the duo, especially from Dan Buttman, who mocked her with his chuckling, smirking condescension. By the way, he's offering berths on a Hawaii cruise with him , his wife and couple of brats. I wouldn't get stuck on a cruise with Dan Buttman if it was discounted to $59.95.


And...surprise! Tommy kicks things off.
Everyone remember: the ONLY criteria for (talk) radio success or failure, are ratings that translate into SALES. A 4.0 share in ANY market means a profit. Period. This means Toppenish and this means New York.
Content? Who cares. This ain't BBC and it ain't KUOW.
And speaking of KUOW...why doesn't BlatherMikey list KUOW on the right hand column as a "Pacific NW Talk Station?"
Do they have a license to bore me at 10am that Prell didn't?
(Unless it's a hard hitting in-studio with Steve Shur(sic) and "Xchtlatxl" the Peruvian mestizo chief who's in Seattle to display his tapestries)
As always..GREAT RADIO Kuow!! Pledge is in the mail.
p.s. has anyone noticed that UOW and PLU are co-locating their begging weeks on the same calendar? There's nowhere to turn. Very clever.


I, personally, would like Dave 7-10 but probably most wouldn't. Interesting . . .


My line-up in any order: Jaco, Ross, Hartmann, Franken; Hart and Webb on weekends. Also, could include Stephanie Miller and Mike Malloy - I like Air America.


It is interesting that listening to the pledge drives on KPLU and KUOW is more interesting than either S&B or Kirby this morning.


that initiative woman isn't serious, is she?


I think it's funny that they have professional beggers take to the airwaves for the occasion. Talk about a shit job! Traveling from city to city, begging and begging some more.


Ways to make Talk Radio more fun:

1) Whenever Medved says "Focus like a lazer beam," he gets hit by an actual lazer beam. (You would think that one of his producers would have told him that this was old when he first started using it over and over again).

2) Whenever Sean Hannity talks over someone, his chair recieves a jolt of 10,000 volts.

3) Whenever Sean Hannity tells a lie, he must run around his building (which should reduced his show to 10 minutes on air a day).

4) Whenever Rush Limbaugh goes off on Oral Sex, he is shot with a dart full of trazadone for making us think of him getting a hummer.

5) John Carlson and Ken Shram must do the Commentators fully in the nude.

6) Kirby Wilbur must take a shot of helium before stating a GOP talking point.

7) Sytman and Boze must take a shot of the liquor of their choice everytime they say something bad about a democrat.

8) Everytime All Things Considered reports on something only someone with way to much education could care about, everyone drinks.

9) Dori Monson must live in a house entirely made out of Gutterhelment Gutters for one year. (The Cadilac of Gutters).

10) Everytime any radio station treats Tim Eyeman as something other than a complete loon, they must take a blow to the head from a 10lbs weight hung above their heads in the studio.

Just a few thoughts.


Ken Schram in the nude??

Otherwise excellent suggestions :-)


I think Sean Hannity would have to do his show from the street!


Trazodone wouldn't touch Blob-o-pills Limbaugh....maybe a double rush of LSD.

The Anti KIRO

I really don't have anything to write today. KIRO is just that bad.



AntiK: I nominate this to be the official Blatherwatch affirmation:



oh come on Joanie, not you too.


Just wanted to comment on the new Koodo Mobility adds with Theresa Joy... they are great!! Its good to see the beautiful young talent in a commical role. The adds for Koodo are so catchy!! I love the 80's workout theme!! 20 minute workout spoof... genious!! Im telling you these commercials are even better the SNL skits done by Drew Barrymore... plus it seems like the Koodo plan is actually really good ... low commitment , free text... Ill be 'air texting' for free now!! This is a very good thing!! Great Great!

    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....
