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.

I guess it's too soon to know if they will flip the format?


Wow! I'm surprised. Pins and needles . . . pins and needles!


Voodoo, Joanie?


oh oh...watch out Dori!!


Liz, if voodoo would vanquish 710DORI and frankie, might be worth a try . . . :)


Sadly they'll probably keep Dori if he gets good ratings though....


Perhaps more news in the afternoon?


I want to give Joannie Ron & Don's time slot.

Well, she can't be anymore mindnumbing.

Ron & Don are kind of like dragging your fingernail across a blackboard.

Except that it's driven you deaf.

But even so, just the thought makes your muscles cringe.

Sometimes they are so bad that you can't turn the dial. Kind of like camp comedy.

My Mother The Car

Sherrif Tex

Michael Savage

Casey Treat

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The list goes on and on..........

I shall give Joannie an air horn so she can blast the ears of obnoxious callers. Or just for the fun of it.


Still waiting for that list of rad 70s music Ryder . . .

good night :)


Please Keep the Herr" McStyblehead off the air waves !
His show is more than just bad it's just plan WRONG!!!
One of many Herr" McStyblehead crap crew!


Y'all white folk is crazy.





The possibilities are endless... Ron Reagan from 12-4? (maybe this is what he means when he says "we're working on it" when people complain about the one hour slot?

Dori to the overnight? THAT would be just dandy!

Hey, has anyone else noted that Shiers starts his hour by saying "the other guys are satellite feeds or RERUNS OF MORNING SHOWS...but kiro is different."? And then he proceeds to promo the Dave Ross RERUN!

buh-bye Frank!


I usually only listen at night. I can tolerate Shiers, but would wish him replaced with someone less arrogant.

I cannot tolerate NY Vinnie (who by the way, last night was interviewing "rollerball" girls).

I say keep Styble (flame away).


Michael Savage has the third 3rd highest rated show in America. Why would anybody think Bonneville is gonna get rid of him? That would be like the Mariners getting rid of Ichiro.


"Why would anybody think Bonneville is gonna get rid of him? That would be like the Mariners getting rid of Ichiro."

careful, with the M's we saw Johnson, Griffey, and A-Rod go. :)


Liz..why do you like The Sty? Not flaming you, just asking...


Thanks for your flameless question, Sparky.

I appreciate what I perceive as Styble's genuine respect for his callers. I agree that at times he does tend to "over-debate" however, there is a common man "genuine-ness" that arrogant asses like Shiers lack.

I am fascinated by Styble's knowledge base, and his passion for talk radio.

I believe he truly values and respects his listeners. I've called his show, several times, and have always received a fair share of the airtime.

I would never call Shiers (or a couple of un-named Canadian hosts) because unless you're on the same page, you are edited or dismissed with smug arrogance and no chance against the dump button.

Styble may disagree with people, and argue at length, but I have never heard him cut them short because they didn't fit into his agenda. There's a syndicated day time guy here on the Corus radio network, Charles Adler (he worked in the States for a while) and I am really ashamed that he is the best that this major player can put forward. He makes the KIRO stable look like stars.

(I was on a cruise at the time of the recent "slaves are better off" debacle, so I cannot comment on that much discussed issue.)


"there is a common man "genuine-ness""
I agree and sometimes that works to his detriment...because of 'expert' judges like us..I find him mildly entertaining for limited periods of time...


New Bonneville "suits" to Clendenning in a "heart to heart"- "You fired Prell and promoted WHO? Frank Shiers? Who the [email protected]#% is Frank Shiers? Desk and locker cleared out by tomorow a.m., 10 o'clock, big guy. Oh, and Mr. Clendenning? We've HEARD Frank's show.

Lone Republican

KIRO is nothing more than a liberal mouthpiece anyway. I say GOOD RIDDANCE!


That is one of the reasons KIRO sucks so much. Everybody knows that liberal radio does not work.
You need an imagination to understand all that important stuff. Left wing imagination left the left when JFK, Scoop Jackson, etc went on.


Chucks, do you know who is the Scoop Jackson of today? I would think that Joe Lieberman would fit that bill.


How does Scoop Jackson and Kiro fit into the topic?


100% agree on Lieberman. But is not the dem party treating him as some kind of disease? That is the dem party that I belonged to some twenty years ago. They abandoned me and my democrat principals and appear to be leaving him today.
It was a non creative segway. My bad.


My bad also.

I would also bet that the Dem Party would treat Scoop Jackson like they do Lieberman.
What will be very interesting is when the activist element of the Dem Party realizes that they are being used by the Clinton/Rahm Emmanuel the Dean element will tear the Dem Party in two. If you really believe that the war is wrong then the Congress can defund it. Stop playing games. Be honest about it.
But play games they do trying to placate the activist element of the Dem Party with this going back in time vote on the war and the non binding resolution. Who is gonna fall for that?
Should be interesting and I look forward to listening to it being discussed on KIRO one day.


Oh yeah Chuck
Call me puts.


If you're going to smear people based upon their opinions of the war as "fringe Democrats" then you should educate yourselves a bit better than that. Unless you consider 58% of Americans "fringe Democrats" then you're simply wrong on this...read up on it or keep flogging that strawman.


Ding Dong...

I hope to never see you again TC.

    • 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....
