  • 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.
  • Orbusmax
    inexhaustible Drudgery of NW conservative news
  • The Radio Equalizer

Hey, when did Adam leave Dr. Drew?

Brian in Lacey wa.

Ok here we go! Kiro news talk , How about this putting Bitchen BOBBY! on from 1:00am to 5:00 ,Put Mrs Ryder on from (9:00pm to 1:00am
And put the Styblehead back at western state hosp room 404 were he came from ! Help !!!! the Styblehead its not funny! its Just bad radio !!!!!!


you forgot a hooty-hoo there Brian.

Actually, while the photos might be worth a 1000 words, I think the text counted for about 2000. Thanks for the link.


Sorry to take this off-topic...
Anyone know what the (current) status is on the Mike Webb situation?


>>the Styblehead its not funny! its Just bad radio !!!!!!<<

Oh I don't know - I think it's kind of funny to hear Styble's night parody of what a talk show host sounds like.

He's talk radio's version of Ron Burgundy.


I actually like Bob Van Dyne a fair amount. Former DJ or not - he's way more intellectual than Ron and or Don.

Not sure if I'd call him libertarian or not. I'm guessing he's more of a moderate-liberal.

Refreshingly he tries to focus on discussion / analysis as opposed to advocating his own position. Kind of like Dave Ross before he "came out" as a liberal when running for office.

I see him as one more sign that KIRO is again moving in the right direction.

Now just do something about Vinnie! Nice guy - but does anyone really tune into Kiro for shportz talk?


Hysterical links, Bla'M, thanks!!


Yeah Spam, right toward a 0.0 rating!


FYI..Last I looked , Vinnie's nightly was beating the all sports station in town in the most recent book!


I made the mistake of listening to KIRO radio for a few seconds last night. Bob Van Dyne's topic of choice... "Is it cheating if you do it with a robot?"

And this is an improvement over Mike Webb? Or Erin Hart? Oh, how I miss having a progressive radio host to listen to 10pm- 1am!


Caytie, have you tried Mike Malloy on KPTK? Honestly, he's very close to Webb. Try him out.

If you can't get KPTK, you can get Al Franken on-line at 10 for about an hour I think.

Both worth the listen IMHO.


stream KGO 810 am and listen to Bernie Ward


Thanks for your suggestions, Joanie and Sparky!


Corolla's quick wit, political incorrectness and testosterone are refreshing - 5 - 10AM weekdays on the End(107.7).


I'm listening to Bob Van Dyne right now for the first time. He isn't too bad so far. At least he doesn't seem to be conservative.

    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....
