I heard Coast to Coast for the first time in close to 11 years tonight, and it suddenly dawned on me why they say "west of the rockies" and "east of the rockies"; it sound more like end-of-the-world if you talk about people in geographical terms like "we're so fucked it doesn't matter what 'state' you're technically in" because the nuclear shellings have since made such things an antiquated triviality. "Where are you calling from survivor?" I'm glad it's back on a station I have business listening to, although I've grown out of it a bit.


just in- Goldman -Sachs and a Russian investor just put up a 500 million dollar stake in Blatherwatch, raising it's market value to 50 billion dollars......this double's the net worh of founder and CEO Michael Hood to about 12 billion - uhh oh crap...my bad... they were talking about Facebook..now i remember.....


Freaked me right out today when David Boze was on, then I was away from the radio for a bit...
Then Hannity was on!
As far as the "Rivers thing"...
I'll not listen every bit as much as I didn't listen before.
I don't get any of the wacky whatever radio.
Ron and Don are as bad as that stuff gets and I cringe every time I hear those voices on ads.
My fear was that Rivers would land at KIRO and make that problem even worse.


Also, tuned in KIRO tonight just to see if Coast to Coast was on and it's weird hearing it on FM.
I'm not a big Noory fan, but glad that it's on instead of that awful Phil Hendrie show...
I'll listen on occasion when Lars Larson isn't in good form...
Geez, I better check the KTTH schedule and see if and when Lars is on now.


It is a sad day for Seattle talk radio when less David Boze is a bad thing. And to be shunted aside for Hannity? At least it means they have moved John Gibson even further back where no one will listen to him.

Still, wouldn't it be nice to have an interesting conservative on in Seattle? Hell, who knew we would someday miss Mike Siegle.


Hey, hey, hey!
John Gibson is my favorite.
I'll never have a day where I wish I could hear Mike Seigel.
It is too bad that Boze is squished down to an hour.

95.7 should blow KVI off the map.
As far as talk radio, I see 97.3 veering that direction.


Rivers on 95.7, with Spike - that may not be bad. There's also 104.5, which isn't bad better than 570 AM for oldies rock. Boze was not stimulating to listen to, some of his stuff wasn't bad, but he did not have the zip or the wit that Bryan Suits does.

Streaming internet helps especially in the 4-7PM time slot.


All that time riding his "Harley" in pleated slacks must've rattled Carlson's brain loose. He doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground, and he knows even LESS about radio. Nobody wins without Rush in this town and I have a hard time believing anyone would be stupid enough to try to launch another Conservative station in this market. Unless of course you're talking about someone with the brains of a (former KVI/KOMO PD) Dennis Kelly or (former KTTH/KIRO PD) Rod Arquette. They would be stupid enough.

Hey, let's let Ron & Don PD a new station. It would, no doubt, be an abysmal failure, but at least they'd be off the air!

RIP, Mr. Boze.

Who the eff cares about David Boze??? Yeah the loss of another local guy is truly too bad. But how could The David Boze Show even fathom success in the Seattle market when he framed his show around a bitter, dying ideology in its last death throes?? Kinda like Medved thinking he'll get Limbaugh/Beck/Hannity sized contract only if he hates the least among us a little more (think homeless vets or poor urban kids getting fed at school). And don't even start me on his refusal to admit the Neo-Con/Cheney experiment was a huge failure; and a failure that will sadly affect the future of his beloved Jerusalem.

Back to Bozo, I cannot imagine that he is even that exciting to his fellow Stepford-esque Hillsdale alum in their 20's and 30's. BTW young adults in that age demo no longer even know WTF terrestial radio is!!! Anywhoo that's the huge media sea-change that the likes of Rupert Murdoch cannot even get their empire around.

David Boze needs to go away and get a real job. And I basically liked Bryan Suits, even though I disagreed with a lot of his positions that he took on his show. I guess it's just a personal thing.


Agreed on the 104.5, they have one heck of a playlist, deeper then most so called oldies stations that's for sure.

On the 104.5 subject, as I type they're playing Harry Chapin's "Taxi"(I'm a pretty regular listener to the station and I always hear a few "Oh wow, that's nevr played on AM or FM" songs).

The problem(one of the few ones KMCQ has) is no DJs and no news or sports or anything like that. I know you can go anywhere and get news or sports, but it would be nice if they had at least one local DJ, so it wouldn't seem automated all the time.

They did have Mark Christopher for a few months last year, but since he's now at KVI, that would be impossible for him to go back to KMCQ.

I mean there has to be someone out there who would like to be on the air and who is an expert on oldies who would like to work at this station.
