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

KRKO went to a heavy-on-news format in the late '80s when SR first bought the place, but abandoned the format almost immediately. A five-person news staff (plus the legendary Bill O'Mara on sports) was down to about 1/2 person within 18 months. Hard to imagine their real intent is to create a news-talker serving the north sound. The format costs.


As I mentioned before, I sure hope the message board posters on radio-info are getting some kind kickback from Michael for his "syndication" of the posts over there ---

KRKO has found itself in the difficult position of being the third sports talker in the market...

radio-info message boards: "KRKO is in a very tough position right now. They are essentially the #3 sports station in the market."

You got to hand it to those Skotdals.

radio-info message boards: "You gotta hand it to Andy."

etc. etc. etc., many more ...

KIRO lurker

Michael is getting some kick-back from the Skotdals too. They wouldn't be the first to buy his favors. If he doesn't hate you, this blog is a tool for the highest bidder. (Ask DK).


If he doesn't hate you, this blog is a tool for the highest bidder.

A feather in their collective cap that Joanie, Sparky, Andrew, Duffman and the fifth reader (forget his name) are such highly sought-after consumers that people would bid to be positively represented to that niche, select coterie.


Michael is on Burbank's payroll too.


I'm not sure what you just said, SIGG, but it was well put. Hoood plainly was paid-off by Fisher until they fired his daughter, then he turned against them.


KKOL's new transmitter site didn't cause Tacoma to explode, as the nearby refinery was so convinced would happen, so KRKO will likely get through this as well.

What's amazing is that the Skotdals have such a commitment to AM.

You paying attention, KIRO?


I'm not sure what you just said, SIGG

me think weird that said "blog tool for highest bidder" - what tool if only 5 reader - me confused



Does that make you the fifth then, Sigg?


I will miss 1520, Oregon City!



ELO, hahhhahhhhh that's rich.

This is totally freaking me out! He's definitely a challenging kid, but has never behaved like this before. We are reacting more calmly than we did at first, and things seem to be getting better, butIf your house burns down and is uninsured, tough luck. But if you get sick and have no insurance and no money, you can still get treatment at the nearest hospital emergency room. (You will be billed, and if you have enough money you will have to pay the bill.) If you have no money, you're a free rider, but the amount of free riding is kept down by the cost that emergency rooms impose on patients by making them wait--and a queuing cost is a real cost to the people forced to stand in the queue. Many of the uninsured are young and healthy; they are like the person with the fireproof house. If they were forced to insure, therefore, premiums for health insurance might fall, though this is highly uncertain. Many of the uninsured, rather than being young and healthy, are uninsured because of pre-existing medical conditions that imply that these people will incur abnsadf ormally high costs of treatment in the future. Medicaid, charity treatment in emergency rooms of hospitals, and Medicare when utilized by indigent people constitute a form of poor relief.

Next time I'll put on some lederhose and sing "Adelvice". That should shatter the Captain Von Trapp illusions most thoroughly..

    • 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.

      Once a rabid right-wing talker, except for Lou Dobbs, it's all business....
