right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing

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.

It will be good to see some coverage of the other side of talk, particularly now that there is a battle for listeners.

Hopefully KJR recognizes that they have been rather stagnant.

Randy

Kudos, and I welcome BlatherWatch out of the political talk ghetto... I will be really interested in chatting about sports radio with Geov Parrish. There will truly be a big change in Seattle in this area.

sparky

I heard on the radio news tonight (KOMO) that the P.I. would disappear only in its paper form, but would continue online....true?

Welcome Geov!

Randy

Do any liberals even like sports?

Thought I Saw A Bum

Oh yeah, Elise is a big name, she's fucking awful. KJR keeps running "live and local" spots. Yet they set aside 6 hours of the day where they don't take phone calls. Mitch is a douche, Softy is a meatball, Ian is a bore and bitter Coug but Groz and Gas are cool. Hugh Millen is also a twat.

Their Seahawks post-game is piss poor. Plus they add to the loser mentality that Seattle sports fans have. They all pulled a train on Holmgren after the last game, but can someone tell me how many titles he won here?

joanie

I posted a welcome and imprudently uttered the name of he who has been disappeared.

So this time I'll just say welcome to Blatherwatch. I'll be looking forward to reading your commentaries, Geov. I like lots of sports. But I like them best when we win.

Puget Sound

The best show on KJR is the weekend stuff with John Clayton. Now that he 'can' go over to KIRO the folks at KJR may start to appreciate him a little more. Little things like not bumping his show for Huskie-Talk would be a good start.

sparky

Speaking of sports:
wow

Duffman

I agree Puts...Clayton is the best...bar none!

howie in seattle

The great think about Geov is that he actually spends time preparing to go on the radio, you know, like reading up on what he's talkin' about!!!

Geov
I look forward to your commentary. You may have noticed that the morning show has gone back to talking about sports and less about good looking chicks. Mitch has evolved into a top flight sports reporter. His interviewing skills are very apparent. Softy is sophomoric, but what the hell, you have to look toward WSU for excellence in broadcasting! (lol) Ian projects that professionalism. Mike Gastineau is an example of how a nice guy can live through and thrive the era of "shock Talk" he is outstanding.

Even Goldy puts an occasional sports story on his blog.

chucks

Do any libs like sports?
Yep, lots of them. You should have seen all of the Oblahblah shirts at Seahawks games.
Libs sat side by side with us, suffering together through an unbarebly crappy 4-12 season.
We suffered to gether as the Sonics drove off in to the sunset.
The Mariners? Yep, them to. How 'bout those Cougars? Dawg for desert.......We have soccer and hockey. I don't know much about them.
Oh well, it is a new year. New hope for change in local sports.
But at least the libs have their very own President to clean up the mess Congress made of our and the rest of the worlds economy.

sparky

chucks, did you look at the video I posted????? crazy stuff..

Puget Sound

chucks
if they do as well in DC as they have in Washington State we should be fine, eh?
they don't want to talk about that. i guess they haven't figured out a way to deal with it other than to put the blame on W.
what they gonna do when they don't have W to kick around anymore...
pardon me whilst i LMAO.

chucks

Wow Sparky
No, I hadn't looked at it untill now. Watched it twice. Those folks are nuckin' futs!!
You know, I always wonder about the guy that tried it first when it comes to stuff like that.
Cops run in to buildings when bullits are flying. Firefighters run in to burning buildings to save the lives of strangers.
Others jump off of huge cliffs wearing Rocky the flying squirel(sp) suits.

KS

I hope KIRO is more relevant on sports than they are sometimes on political talk. John Clayton is the best on talking sports - agreed with Puts and Duff.

KJR - stagnant at least 1/2 of the time. Groz and Gas are OK, but maybe it is just that sports around here are going through a down cycle.

Dave Clark

Groz and Gas are the epitome of stagnant. Their best segment is voicemails. Something that started nearly a decade ago.

They are neither Journalists, nor analysts nor are they entertaining.

Fremont

I love Eat the State (a must-read for election directions), I love ETS on KEXP, I love Geov, and maybe I can learn to love sports! Welcome Geov...can't wait to hear your commie interpretation of field hockey.

Harry Hole

"Do any liberals even like sports?"

lol most of the rightwing talk radio listeners I know hate sports. they either sit around smoking and drinking all day watching Fauxnews or read books about Manifest Destiny and wolf down fast food. It's not just watching sports they abhor either. good luck getting any of them to get off they're KFC butts and exercising. i think most believe you have to be a fatass like Rush or Glenn to be successful.

    • 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.
