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.

hey when your playing handball off the curb where you gonna go but up? good luck to kiro and komo and kptk. i listen to all three daily. dori keeps me away midday. once in a whlle i tune to rightie radio untill they insult me (radio IS personal). thanks BW i enjoy your site. ray bresnan seattle


Bla'M..be sure to let us know if Ed kicks Dori's tokus. Also let us know if his ratings are higher.. ;-)


Dori is kicking butt today on the million-dollar viadict vote...that will do absolutely nothing.

Lots of good City Council voice clips showing them laughing about how the vote doesn't matter.


...oops! "viaduct."

Probably Freudian...since the previous is what we're gettin'....


YEA! KIRO deserves to thrive. They are the only station with local progressives. We should support them and encourage them when they do good like hire Ron Reagan and put Dave in a good spot and hire Goldy, and get rid of Mike Webb and Allan Prell who were such embarrassments to liberal thinking.


Maggie: Going so far left is exactly why they went down so low. There should be more balance to those moonbats you mentioned.


So far left......uh, yeah.


Any chance of KIRO getting the Mariners back? When does their contract with KOMO expire?


KIRO's ratings are a fluke. They won't hold up.


I like KIRO, I just wish their afternoon line-up was as cerebrally challenging as their morning line-up.

Glad to hear their ratings are moving up. Seriously! I'm not being facetious.

It's a shame that their management was allowed to run the place into the ground. Where do Entercom managers go when they fired, Airbus?

I do hope they eventually get the Mariners back, for two reasons. I won't have to switch stations, and secondly, they generally pre-empt Mr. Monson.

Speaking of the Mariners, Spring training is almost here!

And it's snowing in Phoenix.........


Dave Pridemore and Tom Clendening kick ass!


I wonder how much of this is Seahawk related? The programming has not been that consistent . . . You have to wonder, again, just how reliable these books are?

Heck, when did Goldy start? Maybe he's better than he/we think!

Badly put - I think he's great and getting better.


I believe the entire fall book was a fluke. Everything was wrong with it. And how fairly can you judge anything when Warm kills everyone in the month of december playing all christmas music anyway.

The book had just absolutely bizarre anomalies that can not be explained.


KIRO's been dying for a long time. Show me 3 books like this and I'll change my mind, no sooner.


What would KTTH's rating be without Rush Limbaugh?

    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....
