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.

KNHC-89.5 FM (Nathan Hale HS) sets an impossibly high bar for school-based radio. One of the best FM stations ever, anywhere.

What little talk programming they have is predictably bad--the typical godawful stuff coming from the big ed establishment back east. But it's thankfully a tiny part of their programming, probably on just to satisfy some federal requirement for ed programming.

We find this interesting and we will definitely check this out. We thank you for posting this for us.

what's up - why don't you tell us what makes Nathan Hale's radio so good? What's your "high bar?" What's the "back east" awful radio to which you refer? What makes it bad?

So many non-specific bland comments. Hard to talk to someone who says so little.

Rainierradio has a horrible web page design and their registration process apparently does not work. This was a complete waste of time. NSCC incompetence at work.

I successfully registered on Friday. The interface is atrocious though. Hopefully they'll get the help of someone who knows how to organize data and make it easily accessible.

I registered today using Firefox on a Mac. At first I didn't think it interfaced at all. But I played around with it and found that adding my login in an undefined space just below the word "login" worked and just below the word "password" it worked. I was typing without any prompt at all - but it worked.

Try it again Ted Smith because the site is really good. I listened to some of my favorite songs on demand this afternoon. It was very nice.

There's a vietnam vets online music site that I can't get on my mac. It is configured for PCs. It was sent to me by a guy who occasionally reads BW (he calls it Loonwatch) and likes chuck s' posts the best. He's kind of a wingnut himself. I think you'd like this site, chuck, if you don't already know about it.

I know that link wasn't intended for me, but I enjoyed it.
Thanks joanie. :)

I had no problem registering. This is a great project. Thanks to everyone who contributed.

The Royal We

Ted, we had no problem registering. We think you shouldn't give up so easily and try to register again. We found a lot of great airchecks on the Rainier Radio site.


We are pleased.

Thanks Joanie
I do like it a lot.
That is the stuff we listened to on the old AM radio. Was really groovy with a reverb.
Warm thoughts.

    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....
