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.

Nailed it!
Could it be the Mariners thing...or has that already been firmed up?

Bla'M: any inside on what may now happen at KOMO/KVI?

OH BOY, if you guys thought I bitched too much before about the 7PM + programming on KIRO ... wait until you see this. TBTL will be a joy in the face of that 19th century snooze-a-thon baseball ... the preferred sport of old men everywhere!

Gay Gary

oh, but laudits to this blog for breaking the story many weeks ago


Indeed...that's what I like best 'bout this blog...Bla'M usually get's it first! Kudos!


TBTL's days are numbered, there is a God!


Or conversly; took my wife to a Mariners game and she fell asleep in the bottom of the 5th (no, not with a 5th)..ha
Later (at home) she asked how I could find pleasure in watching a bunch of (somewhat over-weight) men stand-around, spit and scratch their private parts. Must be something in the genes.


Duffman and GG raise an interesting point: what is the demographic profile of the audience for baseball on radio these days?

We know the games will draw their own audience, but will that audience stay around for anything else KIRO has to offer? Or will the end of an East Coast game at 8 PM Seattle time cause tens of thousands of listeners to lunge at their radios to avoid TBTL? Or anything else that replaces it?


I missed the announcement but wouldn't have been suprised if it didn't go. "Hi and welcome to the Dori Monson show and I'd like to let you know that next year you will get to hear me, Rick Rizz and some blockhead named Dave Niehaus, calling balls and strikes.

Games will be played in a elementary school ball field located in front of Swartzie manor, where balls will fly through those new storm windows he recently had installed.

In other Mariners news Mariners designate a no peanut zone. No mention of a No Dori Zone at this time."

Hopefully all will be well with Mariners land and they will figure out once again how to hit run and pitch without tripping over themselves while chewing taboacco flavored bubblegum.

I'm so happy the Mariners are going back to KIRO-710! What I really want to see, though, is for KIRO 710 and the M's to bring back clubhouse reporter Noel Zanchelli. Whatever happened to him? I used to tune in to every pre-game and post-game show just to hear his insightful stories about the team. You could always tell he was having fun, loved his job, and wanted to give M's fans the chance to get to know the team both on and off the field. I say, bring Noel back!!!

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.
