I emailed KIRO to ask if I would be able to podcast Ron because I work and not a word back. It would be nice for them to t least say they have no clue if that's what the problem is.

Ryder

I have a slow brain.

Carl Jeffers talks so fast that after the first two sentences I am hopelessly lost.

Plus it is not possible for him to just answer a question. He rambles on and on and on.

He preaches.

Ron the "R" is articulate. He reasons. I like him. Doesn't mean I agree with everything. But he makes me think.

Carl just yaps and won't shut up.

Okay, thank you

Mike,

In regards to "too soon for ass cancer jokes," perhaps you've learned what we already know in radio: every individual gets to decide HOW goddam sensitive they are. YOU get to hear/read about it.

Now...I've heard you described as a "thespian carbuncle of bile" and I'd imagine you've heard worse. My advice is: "If it bends it's funny, if it breaks it's not."
-Alan Alda "Manhattan Murder Mystery"

(BTW- I asked Webb "What's a carbuncle?")

WH777

The novelty of a a liberal son of a classic conservative president wore off a long time ago. Ron Reagan couldn't hold his own against conservative lightweights Tucker Carlson and Scarborough on MSNBC, thats why he is no longer on the imploding cable news net. (Actually, maybe he is a perect fit for KIRO).How will he do any better in the wild world of talk radio? He is a placeholder for a noontime newscast. Time for career change number four (dancer, photographer, commentator, ?)

sparky

Styble gets paid 300$ per night????

All sorts of hoo jokes there, but I will pass on them...

sara

Dori's pissed? Aw, too bad.

I heard the "Dori for congress" thing - I felt the bile rising in my throat and quickly flipped on some of Tom Petty greatest hits.

stodge charger

I was tuning in at 3am while Ray T was on a commercial break and Styble claimed to have all his lines full, a point he made more than once in case someone was listening.

gusto and poor

yes vg

Dana

Dori's mad? Then he can do what he'd advise his listener(s) (both of them) to do: find another job elsewhere.

Andrew

Dori probably thought he owned that time slot. I guess "The Big Show" isn't so big it can't be pushed over by a liberal elitest like Ron Reagan who's just doing this to pass some time during his day.

The station's public relations is such a hand job, Ron and Don were talking about the new line up last night, someone called and asked where Erin Hart went, they said they didn't know and maybe she got a better job in a better market. Someone asked about Proccocino, they said their's definately other oppurtunities for such a talented guy in Seattle, or a market such as New York. Uh hu, keep on jerkin'. Dori Monson was acting as if he were excited about the new changes and bemoaned being the only "moderate" left on the station.

It's one thing to omit ugly details but it's another to completely lie outright.

Andrew

Another thing I almost forgot, a lady called in and said when she heard the news about the schedule shift she called all her friends and that they cheered out loud when they heard the news, and I have a fucking bridge I'd like to sell you.

TomF

If Dori thinks he owns 12p-1p, he's got a pretty short memory. Until a couple of years ago there was a KIRO noon newshour and he had... 1p-4p. When Prell came aboard and Ross was moved to afternoons I believe the noon newshour went away and Dori worked 12p-4p for awhile.

sara

Dori reaaly mad, cause he needs that hour between 3-4pm to hustle up more dog kibble sponsors.

Caytie

Blathering Michael-

Thanks for the link to Allan Prell's site! It's just great to know that Allan is alive and kicking, and planning his syndicated show. And as usual, his photos gave me a much needed chuckle. Boy, with the state of things in this country (gas prices through the roof, Iraq War, political scandals... you name it) we can all use a few laughs. Thank goodness for Allan Prell!

Trip

Rush Limbaugh has been arrested on prescription drug fraud charges.

http://msnbc.msn.com/id/12536446/

gusto and poor

yes vg. Things are going well for Our Side now. We canot fail.

stodge charger

Yes indeed, even crazy Mike Webb will help us on the Final Solution on the GOP

Billie

I'll bet Dori's pissed because that's one less hour he gets to spend with his daughters' nubile friends. I can't believe intelligent parents let a creep like that around this girls.

joanie

Can you imagine the "values" those girls will grow up with? I've thought about that before, too. Kinda sad.

Mac Lore

Does ANYONE on this blog have anything nice to say about anyone?

Not even one positive comment about anyone?

All negative?

All blathering natter?

Does it have to be entirely mean spirited?

Zounders, is our civilization in trouble!

Oh ... by the way ...

Dave Ross does a real good job in dealing with callers that do not agree with his own viewpoint.

Ron Reagan is articulate and is able to calmly state a viewpoint.

Dori Monson adds enthusiasm to each of his broadcasts.

Ron and Don are both highly skilled entertainers.

New York Vinnie knows a lots about sports.

Brian Styble knows a lot about science.

And so forth ...

There.

That wasn't too difficult, was it?

Dana

"Dori Monson adds enthusiasm to each of his broadcasts."

So true...just like when he enthusiastically called homeless people "human garbage". And Adolph Hitler had great enthusiasm for his Final Solution too.

joanie

And NY Vinnie was so smart about sports he got axed from KJR.

Mac Lore's houseboy

Vinnie is eating himself to death. Why does't anyone reach out to this poor, fat man who is obviously crying out for help?

sparky

Wayne Cody did that too...

KS

Dori's stand on illegal immigration is downright American. I know that I will get some flack for this, but that's not my problem.

The big lie out there today is that May 1st will be a march about immigration - What the dishonest media often leaves out is that it is a March by illegal aliens about them becoming American citizens and they are not reporting to work, to show the rest of us how much we need them, but they won't stop until they get rewarded with citizenship for their illegal behavior.

It just happens to coincide with May Day - the biggest holiday of the year in Communist bloc countries - therefore that day should be proclaimed Pinko de Mayo ! Local far left Marxist groups are also helping get the word out and fund the large protests scheduled for Monday. La Raza and even Moveon.org are helping out. I understand that Mexico is asking its people to boycott American products on Monday. Please join myself and others in boycotting Mexican products and establishments to show that a majority of the people will not reward lawbreakers with citizenship - nor do we plan to deport the 15million + non-citizens back to their country of origin.

Bottom line; I disdain the attitude of the corrupt Mexican Government, but also empathize with Mexican non-citizens who are trying to make a living as best as they can. At the same, they need to obey the laws when they are here and local authorities who we fund with our tax money are obligated to enforce these laws.

joanie

You use too many words to say nothing, KS.
Still Klueless and now Hopeless. :)

stodge charger

How do you know it's all illegals marching, KS?

sparky

Disdain away, KS...I plan on going to dinner at the local Mexican restaurant to show my support of decent wages. If you want to boycott something..how about swearing off all products that are grown or raised in Washington using that illegal labor you are so against?

Oh, and I will watch Univision on TV too...

Joanie did you realize that those little baskets of flowers we got on Mayday were communist? Who knew?

stodge charger

How do you know it's all illegals marching, KS?

joanie

How ironic! My favorite flowers are RED . . . carnations, roses, tulips!

les BOOGIE

yeah, if you want to see what a real woman looks like, tune in to Univision.

Justin Atheropinion

Pinko de Mayo?

I LIKE it!

KS

You wouldn't know that illegals are marching by the way the mainstream media is reporting it. Why don't go to the march and ask some of the participants and see what kind of response you get - Stodge Charger ? Joanie - you can be like talking to a brick wall. Sparky's reaction is typical knee-jerk. Cute one about May-Day baskets - haha. Seriously though, do laws matter anymore or are we slaves to political correctness ? Problem is illegal aliens do not get paid minimum wages at Azteca or wherever - so your comment doesn't make sense. So you think we should give all 15+ million of the non-citizens automatic citizenship and open the gates for millions more - because you think that will help get your Democrat candidates elected ? Such a fine example to set for future generations ! I have way more respect for those who play by the rules. Clueless ? Only if you see the jist of this message.

KS

Should read; Clueless ? only if you DON'T see the jist of this message .

joanie

Blather, blather, blather . . . generalize, generalize, generalize . . . or should I say "Fox-ilize, Fox-ilize, Fox-ilize? We're on to you and your lack of informed opinions, Klueless.

Get back in your box and protect yourself. Gosh, you certainly wouldn't want to hear anything that might actually inform your opinion.

sparky

Knee jerk? My knees are just fine.

actually, went for Mexican food tonight and there was a sign in the door saying they will be closed on Monday so they can go march.

stodge charger

"You wouldn't know that illegals are marching by the way the mainstream media is reporting it."

Maybe the MSM isn't reporting facts it dosen't have.

"Seriously though, do laws matter anymore or are we slaves to political correctness ?"

Yes, I think whoever leaked the info on a CIA operative should go to jail, if that includes Bush/Cheney

"So you think we should give all 15+ million of the non-citizens automatic citizenship and open the gates for millions more - because you think that will help get your Democrat candidates elected ?"

Isn't that Bush' whole plan with the 'guest worker' program?

Too bad it has backfired on Bushler on top of the other bad news that piles up daily...

Ross is great anytime. That said, KIRO has gone through some awfully good talent and can't seem to get the line-up right. What is going on? Usually, they fire the manager....don't they? Miss Proccy and think he was/is great. Glad to hear Prell will be available soon. My humble thoughts. signed a radio talk show junkie

Eric t

Where to begin with you uneducated/educated fools? The system does not work! Queers are not normal. America is the greatest nation in the history of the planet and is the most giving and compassionate nation of all time! We are the best! And our people made this so. Queers are NOT normal but have their place. In the closet and out of the way where they belong! When we get back to normalcy, only then will the world be a bettter place!

Eric t

Where is Michael Savage on your liberal radar? He surely knows more than any of you! His ratings you ignore?

Eric t

Any of you brainwashed libs able to debate anything I say without resorting to name calling or labeling? Savage is best 3-6 on KTTH. Can you debate him? Go ahead call and see! Do you show his ratings against your beloved Ross, who fled the timeframe to avoid humiliation? I thought not. Hypocrites as usual. Real Americans will fight for their country unlike you cowards.

RedRachel

THANK YOU ERIC!!! Good luck to you, though. It is a SERIOUS chalenge to communicate with most of the people on here without them completly crossing the line and insulting your inteligence and your beleifs. They are rude, crude and incredibly obnoxisous individuals with nothing but a LIBERAL AGENDA. There communist thoughts and beleifs are hard to ovecome but as I just mentioned a little while ago I have made that my mission! LETS WORK TOGETHER ERIC! I am herby offering you a strategic partnership with the goal of changing the hearts and minds of the LIBERAL MEDIA AND THERE MINIONS (this bunch).

To the homo liberal communists: THERE IS A BETTER WAY. I beleive the end is more near than it has been in years, but you can repent. You can change your ways. If you want my husband and I will work with you in person. Anyone who wants our help and guaidence can write a post requesting our email address and me or my husband will email it to you. (We don't want to post it here because the liberal filthy idiot homos will all start harassing us directly). But I want you to know that I will sinserly from the bottom of my heart do everything I can to change any of your sinfull ways. Eric, please let us know if you would like our email address so we can work together.

sparky

it was inevitable, I guess...

joanie

Who cares?

sparky

very true..
Joanie how do you watch C-Span if you dont have cable??

joanie

Basic cable which costs me $14 a month gives CSpan and CSpan 2. It also airs channels 2-29 which are the networks, hallmark, all the gov't channels, bravo, a canadian channel, KCTS arts. . . that's about all give or take one or two. I had expanded cable once when I worked nights and all I seemed to get were infomercials so cancelled it. There's not much I really miss considering the cost of full cable. I get what I want to watch most of the time.

At school we get all cable so I do watch sometimes . . . actually all I really like is Iron Chef so there you are! (and Olberman which I don't see much . . . ) I'm not at school for Stewart, Maher, etc. At least not that I know of.

KS

I agree - Eric T. Dave Ross is udderly boring compared to Michael Savage. I like his irreverance and he could shake up the lefty ideologues who frequent this website regularly.

The problem is that Savage does not care for Bush, so the left's arguments have to exist of something besides personal attacks - and their rhetoric becomes vacuous. Unfortunately he has it pegged and doesn't mince his words about the other sinister politicians in DC and a number of them do not have a D beside their name.

joanie for KS

Hey, KS, did you see the link to "vetoes, what vetoes?" that I put on the "Limbaugh denies everything" thread? It will take you right to the article, no registration this time. Try it and tell me what you think.

Tommy008

Webb the Impostor is having his "big thinking" night tonight- no snide cheapshots at Hood and Blatherwatch, just the nasty, venal little creep playing the role of expansive , phisosphical "big thinker" with another of his whiny, squeaky professorial guests. My God, man, you're months away from sharing a cell with Big Leroy.
