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.

e dawg

Let him take Frank's place on NW Nights. Frank can go over to KVI AM and spin some oldies like in the KBSG Days.

Puget Sound

Very sad.
Boze is much more interesting then Sean Hannity.


I don't agree with much of what he had to say. But he was better than Hanity. Glad kevin Calabro is sitll on. All we now is a basket ball team

David M

I'm a liberal but I've always enjoyed listening to David Boze's take on things. I have no interest at all in Hannity. What a weird move.


David Boze strikes me as ideal for Seattle. Quite listenable, even if you don't agree with him, somewhat like Carlson in "non-election season" mode. Less bombastic than Munson who I can take for no more than 5 minutes.

I can't take Hannity at any price.


Good news that Boze will at least still be on, but I don't know if 1 hour is worth it unless it's your "hobby" like Weisbach.
Very good news that John Gibson will keep the 3 hours in Seattle, but I sure would rather he had the 4 - 7 pm instead of Hannity.
I can watch a bit of Hannity's TV show only because he has a panel discussion quite often.
(Usually good stuff)
His 3 hour GOP radio advertisement just isn't my thing.

henri [pronounced "ahhnn-REE"

Interesting how so many libs and conservatives agree: Hannity's a bore. Not to mention an asshole. Dumb move to add him.

KTTH should find a place for Kirby Wilbur. Flush Gibson.

Topic change:
Anyone listen to KIRO-FM this am [Thurs 12/2?]. They hyped some soccer game continuously. Then the anti-climax: After a gag of hype, they missed the live announcement: Seattle didn't get it. Who cares anyway.

I've tried the "new" KIRO-FM morning team. It seems they only repeat the same crap every 15-minutes. What's your take?

[Wish this site would add a forum.]


Limbaugh and Beck have some kind of perverse entertainment value but Hannity is just a boring bully.


Another vote for Hannity is a bore..


"I've tried the "new" KIRO-FM morning team. It seems they only repeat the same crap every 15-minutes. What's your take?"

Always been that way. It's just that Bill Radke is much more annoying than Tony Minor or Gregggg Hersholt were.

casual observer

Interesting move since Bonneville took Sean Hannity OFF their station in Salt Lake City because his on-air style was not in line with Bonneville's Deseret Media Company's mission statement that calls for civility and other ethical stances.



I kinda like the Radke thing on KIRO in the morning, but can't stand that they repeat the whole show every hour. You only need to listen to one hour to get what they're talking about. Why bother listening for more. Maybe that's the thinking behind Bose too? People don't listen, so just repeat the same crap?


Hannity is un-listenable.

Boze will be missed. Though I liked his show better when Young Jake was his producer.

However, I guess moving to Dori's show was a good move for Jake.


Yes, "Young Jake" was great with Boze because of the whole dynamic with Dave always treating him like the younger brother...
Pushing him around, yet he loved him sort of thing.
It was a great chemistry.
Jake on Dori's show tends to come off more like Dori's grandson.
Jake seems younger than he is, and Dori sounds older than ever.
It certainly has added a new take for the show...
As a long time Dori listener, I'm tuning to Schram and Medved much more often these days.
I think it has more to do with Jessica than anything.
Also, Phil was such a big part of Dori's show...
Good for Jake that he was "upgraded", sort of a drag for Phil, although I think the Carlson show and KOMO really gained with Phil's move.


Is Joanie actually Amy Hagopian? This U.W. professor and Garfiels PTA member thinks that army recruiters are similar to child predators...... Can this region really have two resident kookbutt leftists of this level of absurdity? Two, two drivers of '69 Volvo station wagons with Jesse Jackson for President bumper stickers? Sadly folk, Joanie is not Amy Hagopian. Thers is room for more than one Amy here, in fact there is room for thousands and thousands of them.


It seems to me musical chair talk radio is the order of the day. Kirby Wilber was fired, and the domino effect began. Oh where, Oh where will conservative talk radio land nobody knows. Lets all live in a yellow submarine, because it seems conservative talk radio in Seattle is sinking fast.

Puget Sound

Boze will have fun with this. The Dems who crossed party lines to vote with Repubs to vote against the Millionaire's tax.

"The roll call on the so-called millionaire’s tax, which also needed 60 votes to advance, was 53 to 37, with Republicans again unanimously opposed and joined this time by Mr. Feingold, Mr. Lieberman and Senators Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, Tom Harkin of Iowa and John D. Rockefeller IV of West Virginia."
