  • 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.

Moving In Memorium, Michael. And nice review of the year. Kinda nostalgic at my age...brings a tear to these old eyes.

Oh well, 'tis the time to start anew.

PugetSound

2008 should be a very interesting time. By this time next year we will know the next President.
Best Wishes!

sparky

Happy New Year, and may 2008 bring us no more pictures of Malkin or Dr. Laura Grizzly Bear.

Janet Morrow

Low moment: Phil Vanderwort gets his own show (sometimes), thus proving he really IS Dori's brown-nosing bitch.

sanka

Is he really coming back? We call him Phil Blanderwort.

joanie

When I heard him for several minutes this afternoon, I thought he Frank Shiers. OMG!

This is the first post of 2008!
(Well, except for my others posts on other threads.)

Upton

The big loss was Mike Webb, replacing him with a bozo like Frank Shiers just made things worse. Tell me, has he stopped babbling about his daughter yet?

joanie

His daughter...math reform...Al Gore... that's Frank's (I'm an expert on everything) show in a nutshell.

Christopher Hitchens

I do admire her courage and wonder which of our candidates would be willing to face it in such a manner. Kind of puts the Trent Lott/Harry Reid types in perspective.

Could 2008 be the year of the Revenge of the Republicans or will it be the birth of a new America as you (re:majority of commenters on this blog) want to see it, thanks to the Democratic Party ?

PugetSound

It is classic Hitchens. A tough but fair article.

The best of your blathering, Bla'M...glad your writers aren't on strike!

Happy New Year, everyone.
I'm looking forward to more radio gossip and less political beer tears from the bed wetting Blather guy this year.
2007 was a sad year with the death of Mike Webb and the KVI mistake of letting Bryan Suits go.
He was the brightest light on the Seattle talk radio landscape!
Dori rules the local airwaves now, hopefully, KIRO will grace us all with the dumping of super smug Frank Shires and if there is a God... Ron and Don will find their new contract null and void.
("Wishful thinking" of course)
Anyway, may the forces of Capitalism bring back the days when Seattle talk radio was something to be proud of.

    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....
