  • 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
    prolific former Seattle KVI, KIRO talk host speaks authoritatively about radio.

hey ph(J)oanie
"Bonneville went after a "product that entertains, provides needed depth and provides news through the perspective of Generations X and Y.”

Looks like you and your cat won't be listening to much KIRO. No Ron&Don and no Dori. I'm guessing that maybe you'll still listen a bit to Dave :)
Of course, we can guess by your prior referencing that Randi and 'the word' podcasts will still be your main source of information.


Apparently PugetSound has lost his job and is left to sit at home in his underwear posting on blogs all day.


PS wears underwear??


yikes lee-ann. at least i ain't hanging/cruising around at the MN airport so give me some credit.
actually,a family illness has me on vacation time right now minding the store. hence i am housebound. i'm sure that sparky and ph(j)oanie are hoping that i'll be back at work soon.

Ted Nugent

Heyyyy You could be like me and avoid the Vietnam draft by sitting around for a week in urine and feces coated underwear. Most craaazzy right wingers have hang-ups too, not just Larryyyy Craig.


Ooooooh; what an image that conjured up...sparks, that would be just plan wrong.


btw: where IS Brian?


hmm.... what if radio stattions had torturously long names like the oversponsored hydroplane boats in the Seattle Seafair hydro races....hmmmmmmm....-- recently heard on "The Church of Latter Day Saints and Jesus Christ (The Mormons) and Dori Monson's 710KIRO"- more asininity from Dori and Frank. If KIRO entered a Miss 710Kiro in the Seafair Cup, even the ever-so-glib Pat O'Day would have trouble spewing out the boat's official name.


no... if KIRO enters a boat in next year's hydroplane races it will be called "The Mormon Church presents Bonneville Broadcasting's Miss Dori Monson's 710KIRO


Attention Sparky and Joanie! Frank Shiers admitted tonight that he got his start teaching school when he was hired during the middle of a teacher's strike. Frank is a scab! SCAB SCAB SCAB


well that isn't surprising, is it?


Well Sparky, someone had to step up and teach the kids. The likes of you and Joanie would have heldout all year just to get a bigger summer break. Thanks should be given to Frank for seeing that them kids needed an education for if this country went to war, those who would want to volunteer for the Army or other service, would be smart and bright enough to operate the equipment needed in battle. Thank you Frank, scab you are not.

    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....
