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.

well, I have said it more than a few time about frank Shiers not working on his show prep, But last night , I have to take my hat off the Frankster !!! he held his ground last night and, I was on his side for the first two hours of his show , I missed the rest of his show . So frank dont let me down tonight !


Do you trust Arbitron's stats? Also, I wonder how much impact on-line listening has on those numbers. Do they include on-line listening? I listen on-line far more often than I used to.

And other computer distractions like games and on-line chat?

This little box is mighty addictive.

And the rise of cable tv?

Although, even when I'm on the computer for any reason, I am usually listening on-line to radio.

So many alternatives today - not to mention all the fed and local government TV stations available to people who really want to be informed - like CSpan, Seattle Channel.

Many niches - smaller market shares. But radio is still around and will be for a long time. JMO.


Where does that survey say, "Talk Radio"?


Exactly. Where does it say "TALK" radio. No doubt there are a lot more choices than in 1994, so it's probably true radio listening TSL HAS gone down, but I'd bet that music radio is what's really getting killed. Compared to talk radio, it's probably WAAAAAAY down...in fact spoken word radio is probably holding the average up

Poor in Redmond

Don't listen to commercial radio! Get Sirius! Howard is The King! The King! Howard had Tobey Maguire on his show today. Howard asked him who would win in a fight: Spiderman, Batman or Superman?

Great radio.


What? I wasn't listening.


So, P'in, who would win in a fight?

Poor in Redmond

Superman is the obvious choice, but if he is fighting Batman or Spiderman on their home turf anything can happen, kind of like what's happening to us in Iraq. In the end I think the superheroes would all declare it a draw, just like I think we will in Iraq.

Sparky, you can listen to liberal talk on Sirius. Plus, I think you would enjoy Howard's schtick. Only 44 cents a day!


I have looked at the line up....if AA ever goes under, then I will check it out..but they dont carry everyone I like to listen to...

kris in kent

i dont really listen to radio at all anymore. everythings just so slanted to the left and you cant get a honest view of the news anymore. its really sad that the driveby media just keeps trashing bush but cant come up with any ideas of there own.


So speaketh the "voice of objectivity"- not.

Poor Kent, can't find a truthful (read conservative) radio station. Can anybody help this lost (deaf and blind) soul?


I have noticed that Rush and Hannity have really run over to the left lately, yep!

kris in kent

i apreciate you trying to put me down jonie but i wasnt saying that im trying to be objective was i? i dont have any problem whatsoever with liberal stations for you guys to listen to but you have to admit that a lot of the charecter assaults are pretty over the top.


Not to mention these local yokels: Medved, Carlson, Suits, Wilbur, and the biggest buffoon, Monsoon, himself.

Oh dear. Hard to miss 'em, huh?

So, Kent, did we help a little bit - hmm?

kris in kent

what a angry little femonazi you are.


Aw, Kent, I'm not angry. In fact, I'm having quite a good time with you.

Feminazi? I see you already found Rush. Well, that was resourceful of you. See, you didn't need our help afterall. :)

    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....
