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

Allan, where are you? You left us here with Dori....

Gregory McKie

Allen prell
Stinkweed Moholohan

I'm actually looking forward to reading Allan's latest.

He is a very funny writer.


I hope Allen's book has a thinly veiled Dori-like character. Perhaps a pizza deliverer who attends community college (on-line) and fancies himself morally superior to his customers. His name could be Marion Robert Bronson. His delivery companion is his dog, Moon Pie. People tell Marion that he reminds them of Peewee Herman...

Miss you Allen!!!


Prell's humor is too arbitrary for my taste.

Puget Sound

his humor may be arbitrary, but if you 'get it' he is a rare bird.

the day he was let go, i had the chance to hear his show on a long drive. everyone in the car was in stitches and i recall thinking, i'll be listening more to this man.

then after the show he got canned.

i am still ticked at kiro.

Motercity Man

Will Prell do a book signing in the Seattle area? I’ll also pick up a copy, but a Blather mention in his sig would be a riot.

Bitty from Lake City

Yes! A Seattle book tour! Miss hell out of you, Alan.


Just when I thought it was safe to check into the Blatherwatch site on a regular basis with little more than Dori bashing and weekly "old radio photos"...
now this?
I have to admit, Prell is the very reason I know what Blatherwatch is.
I was so happy to see that he was canned from KIRO, heard of his "protest march" and found this site looking for the car crash photos of Allan with "grape juice blood all over him".
I have to admit, that was very funny.
He was funny at times, just so annoying that he could never last as a radio host anyplace. Not with that voice.
Looking back, I'd much rather hear his voice on ads and a show I don't listen to rather than R&D.
I do hope Allan is happy, he wasn't a bad guy, just annoying.
Really, REALLY annoying.


By the way, I'd love to see the old Blather photos if you can post them... Allan's protest...
Something about the chains of oppression and the blood of something or other on him...
I think everyone would like to see that.


Allan Prell was funny at times, especially if you didn't take him too seriously - if you did, you'd be lost. Although, I wondered if he was playing with a full deck and he was annoying at times. He also had a peculiar belief system and a wacky sense of humor, but was entertaining - the only talker I found more entertaining at times was Michael Savage. Maybe not coincidentally, I discovered Blatherwatch about the time he was canned.

I'd listen to him again, if I knew where to locate him.

Jaynie Dillon Jones

As a Prellian myself, I look forward to reading Allan's new's release.

I know, that's how we met...

    pacific nw talk stations

    • 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....
