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

She's lucky to be with Reagan. He's got the connections and she ought to do well in that environment. I'll bet CBS elevated the "professional" in her producing-craft and I wish her well.

I just wish Air America would bring back Seder...


Conversly I think RR is lucky to be with Tina Nole. As far as speculating whether or not CBS 'professionalized' Tina I think it's likely she was the professional in that marriage and got frustrated at their (CBS's) lack of professional risk taking and refusing to take a chance with new ideas. That (to some extent) is what's hurting their (& Katie Couric's) ratings.
Much like KIRO is doing with TBTL, television and radio need to experiment and innovate...lest they are likely to go the way of the P.I.
And Bla'M, you reverted back to calling her 'Noles' in last paragraph of your post. :)


I hope Noles and Reagan meet with success. Too bad Ron Reagan couldn't be put on KIRO in TBTL's time slot.

He's much easier to listen to, and obviously more politically aware than the feminized Burbank and his grating on the nerves partner.

Unfortunately, the powers that be at KIRO seem to feel it's necessary to appeal to a school girl mentality during those hours.

so you saying that Dave Ross didn't have a professional show because Tina Nole wouldn't take your 'advice' ? LMAO!
scene: KIRO 710, circa 2004.

"Dave, it's that old woman calling in AGAIN...No, she won't tell me what she wants to talk about only that she must speak to you!"

Puget Sound

"Just tell her I'm not in the Studio then Tina"

"Dave, she can hear you on the Radio"

"Tell her it's a 'Best of Ross' Show"

"Won't work, she just heard you give the news."

"Okay, tell her I can't talk cause other callers are in front of her."

"Daaaaave, you just said the 'lines were clear.'"


That's right, el parrot. Check out what Bonneville has done with the website.

You're still an idiot trying to impress. Give it up.


BTw, Reagan has become snarkier since he's gone national. That's interesting to me. I liked him a little better before but I'll take him his way. I wonder how Tina can survive in New York on a paycheck for producing an hour show a day?


>> I wonder how Tina can survive in New York on a paycheck for producing an hour show a day?<<

Looks like Tina won't have to worry about that. AA just announced they're expanding Ron Reagan's program to three hours (3p-6p PST) beginning on Groundhog Day.


There you go joanie, you got your wish. Now see how long you can tolerate his mamby-pamby chatter whilst the rest of us listen to real radio.


"namby-pamby?" I thought that was you, duff.

"real radio?" Like what . . . billo reilly? billo savage? billo beck? How many other billos are there? Let me count them here...

Sorry, too many to fit.

Real radio? You still listening to your transistor, duff?


Thanks Ron. I hope he's successful. I love Ron but I would have preferred Sam. But, anybody but Bender...

BTW, Mark Green, Arianna Huffington and Katrina VanderHeuvel (sp????) were great on Air America Saturday.

Perhaps because the two women made Mark Green sound green, Green replaced Katrina (easier to spell) with Reagan. Katrina was sharp on the issues. Reagan is conversant and fun but not the intellectual that she was.

I wouldn't mind that show running an extra hour.

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.
