Well-written, and flaming.

So I guess you've completely given up on actually listening to Seattle talk radio now, right? I mean you clearly have time to take more shots at political groups you dislike, but can't be bothered to, you know, cover changes in Seattle like Lars Larson switching stations.

Blatherwatch used to be an interesting take on what was going on, but you've clearly changed its focus.


Since when is Lars Larson Seattle talk radio?


You mean his nationally syndicated show? That doesn't make him a Seattle talker.

Radio Queen

The point made by Sarkus is valid. This blog has turned into a political bash fest--and it's always at the expense of conservatives. Perhaps Bla'M should retitle the blog to fit his mission...and he does have one.


But, you see it's HIS blog, lest you not forget that and as far as I know NO ONE is twisting your arm to either read or participate in these topics. So get-a-long little doggie if you must. Bwahahaha

Radio Queen

But you see, the title of HIS blog is misleading...It actually used to be all about radio. Just suggesting that the blog be labeled to reflect what it really is. Truth in advertising, you know...


There is absolutely NO (peer-reviewed) evidence that Bla'M is NOT listening to talk radio so we don't have to and your claims are not scientifically validated.

Listening to talk radio includes topics covered....

Nearly impossible to prove a negative.

As for finding out what science is up to...don't ask Al Gore -all you will hear is a biased and blasphemus opinion from a corporatist.

...don't forget the carbon offsets he's willing to sell ya also. how much money has that man made on those things?

blathering michael

Hey Radio Queen, Sarkus, Miles ... this blog has always had about a 40/60 mix liberal politics to radio stuff.

But if that's not OK, I'll send you your money back... oh yeah, that's right, YOU DIDN'T FUCKING SEND ME ANY! Guess I still own this rag unencumbered...


Bla'M, just curious...what are the "costs" in running this, as you put it, rag? I thought cutting/pasting from other sources was free.


I believe the snarky personal attacks are passe here now, RQ. Plenty of other blogs on the intertubes if you are dissatisfied with this one.


Queen, who cares. Life is short. Too short to get concerned about the small stuff. It is what it is.

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber
    • KIROFM 97.3

      Seattle's foremost public radio news and talk.

      Visit the burnt-out husk of one of the seminal right-wing talkers in all the land.

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).
