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.

Ah, jeez, Nate....I hate it that I have to sleep at night and miss this fantastic piece of true Americana ...but the link! The live link! These are the words that keep our economy on the run! (Does Bla'M pay you to listen to swill while he watches the sun rise over Mayan pyramids? Why else would you sacrifice your soul?)


Well done, Nate! Having never listened to this six-hour(?) commercial that has brought the mighty KIRO to its knees, I now know I never shall.

Just checked the schedule, I notice The Frank Shiers show is on seven - count 'em - seven days a week - three-hours a day. Frank must be quite pleased with himself . . . gonna give up that rock-jock job, Frank?


PS: Love the Wiki Sixteen Tons link! I didn;t know all those nuances......thanks!


On Fire with Carl Jeffers has replaced the Shierster on Saturday night now. Thank Christ for small mercies. Yes the Shireman is as smug as a bug in a rug now.


Carl Jeffers must plug his nose when he takes over for FS. Too bad that a quality broadcaster like CF has his time slots jerked around because of football.

I am so grateful that there is KGO to listen to at night, to avoid the truckers & FS.


If you are streaming on the computer, a wonderful music station is KOHO radio out of Leavenworth..Icicle Broadcasting, owned by the venerable Harriett Bullet.


I'm surprised Harriet Bullitt has her hand in any radio anywhere. . . didn't know that. Thanks Sparky. Wonder if she has other stations?

Is it classical?


Ms Bullitt is VERY active in many organizations in the Leavenworth area.She lives across Icicle Creek from Sleeping Lady Retreat Center, another of her projects. They have conference space, cabins, a gourmet chef, a chapel and a music center where concerts are held. KOHO is right at the entrance to Sleeping Lady. Ms. Bullitt hops her little tram from her house ( very unassuming medium sized chalet) and eats at the dining room many evenings, although I didnt see her when I was there. Dale Chuhuly has a glass sculpture there, and there is a lot of outdoor art, sculpture, etc.

KOHO is a mix...classical on sunday mornings but the rest of the time it is a mix of adult contemporary, soft rock, jazz, and news from the BBC on the hour.

www.kohoradio.com I stream it all afternoon until its time for Rachel...


Does Bla'M pay you to listen to swill while he watches the sun rise over Mayan pyramids? Why else would you sacrifice your soul?

I'm paid by an unknowing benefactor (ie boring job that let's me sacrifice my soul to Bla'M)

That and my therapist tells me it's good to have hobbies. You do all the trapese yoga sky diving you want.


Set your own life time more simple get the personal loans and all you want.

    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....
