right-wing blogs we like

Well-written, and flaming.

Whatever happened to Cliff Lenz?? Google didn't produce anything current.


According to this link, Cliff Lenz became a music publisher. I haven't found what he publishes, though: http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/entertainment/2003638439_bestbets28n.html




I recently saw Pat O'Day at an event and was surprised that someone who touts abstinance of alcohol by disciplined treatment apparently can't apply it to himself in regard to smoking. He smokes like a chimney.


Time does cloud memory. I don't remember Shirley Hudson as being such a hottie. What ever happened to her.


A realtor at Windemere??


Sure brings back memories. I was lucky enough to be part of a small group invited to a party given by Cliff many,many years ago. He was as kind and authentic in person as on air. Also, he started out as I recall in Seattle radio at a small oldies station called KUUU. Anybody remember those call letters? Seems like they were at the end of the dial.

I think Bill Rice was the news guy there as well.


BTW, Cliff was a talented musician himself. Piano if I recall correctly. I wonder if he composed? A talented, intelligent and attractive man.

"I recently saw Pat O'Day at an event and was surprised that someone who touts abstinance of alcohol by disciplined treatment apparently can't apply it to himself in regard to smoking. He smokes like a chimney."

Schick-Schadel treatment has nothing to with "discipline." It's so-called "aversion therapy." It's a lucrative but not very effective treatment whose business plan depends upon repeated visits by those who can afford them. O'Day has a major piece of it.


Does not one have to be somewhat disciplined just to commit oneself to the program of aversion therapy. Think so there Eienstein, but thanks for your contribution even tho you don't know what TF your talking about.

Mark C.

Motivation to change perhaps, but discipline isn't part of it.

Patients undergoing aversion therapy are made to think of the undesirable experience that they enjoy, for example, a violent person might be shown images of violent crime, or an alcoholic might be made to drink, while drugs or electric shocks are administered. In theory, the patient will, over time, come to associate their addiction with the negativity of electric shocks or seizures.


Lan Roberts was so skinny way before he got cancer.


I was struck by how thin he was, too. Being that thin isn't an advantage when you get sick.


You can NEVER be too rich, too tan or too thin.


You'd also think that knowing and befriending Lan for so long that O'Day would heed Roberts's last years preaching of the downside of smoking. Lan, as many of you may recall devoted much time to that cause.

Super Model

Too thin = DEAD. Now that's smart.


Sorry Bla'M, didn't mean to offend any one - guess some can give but not take. Any way, got the hint. [smile]


God bless Dr. Bill! To listen to him mentoring the young 10 year old Tyler was incredibly inspirational.

This is a man that needs to be heard.

I request Mr. Hood do a piece on the incredible insight, intelligence and plain 'ole good American common sense. What a great American!


Jesus 35 years ago these guys looked like broken down old men. No wonder not many of them are left.

    • 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....
