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
    prolific former Seattle KVI, KIRO talk host speaks authoritatively about radio.

wow. go Luke.

Bernard and Donna Yates

I've been digging Dave & Luke in NH. They have the right balance of seriousness and fun.

Bill Wippel

Great to see a station owner going the distance. KIRO Newsradio did this so well in the 70's and 80's. More power to them!

Bingo maniac

Luke looks like one of those fags that GayRea would love to get his mouth all over.

Bingo maniac

Everyone, let's Tebow a little for our hero Glenn who threw his back out.

dave, not dave ross

Yes i particularly enjoyed Lukes trenchant comments about the cab driver who was so uninformed he shouldnt be allowed to vote, and his disdain for how early the bars close. what a waste of time and money


Maybe Dave can leave Puke in New Hampshire.


This reminds me of real radio reporting. Thanks KIRO!


Dave is doing real reporting--Luke is visiting bars.

Dr Dunn

"Spasrkler" - what does that mean? How can anyone take someone seriously who can't speak in comprehensible English? Explain please or I'll put you in the "to be ignored" gang of idiocy.

As a first time poster and long time reader I hoped that the insult/rancor factor would be reduced. Making fun of grammer errors or poor spelling is really not the way to go.

Mary can you please stop with the insulting commentary? I trust you can do better or perhaps go somewhere else if you can't follow the rules.


Waiting for the hoped firing of Luke. Seems like the station doesn't really want my demo to listen (and buy).

Maybe I'm just not into sham-wow jokes and Fruit Loops, Coco-Puffs and Ho-Ho humor.

In my day, tards like him would piss you off by reciting 20 minute segments of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Not original, not funny and his stammering and seeming complete inability to speak coherently make him very unlistenable and, given greater proximity, highly punchable.



"Maybe I'm just not into sham-wow jokes and Fruit Loops, Coco-Puffs and Ho-Ho humor."

Well, some prefer Jeff Renner reading weather casts in his articulate BORING zzzzzzzzzz way, or listening to KOMO 1000 drive time...

Me? I like the cart to be moving on, not broken down, with the donkey's leg snapped and crusted in the ooze and blood, rotting in the sun as the ants, spiders, vultures and Mitt advance.

Luke Burbank's golden emanating tones are among the most unique and talented that SeaTac yakker lovers' ears have been able to Sham Wow up in a long time.

Luke is in the Hardwick, Prell, Ross, French vein, only for a new day...

Also, I loves me my Monty Python, and I'd rather hear a person talking to me like a person at the bar than like a "Professional Talk Show Host" reading from the news or (yawn) weather script with the chortle chortle of a Dan Lewis or a Jeff Renner, or a Jean Enerson,,,,,reading other people's shit in their "Professional" adult voices.

I'm not in my adult diapers with my tapioca bowl (yet).

Dig it, Man?

and the beat goes on n on (if we is lucky ducky)
Maybe you lost your shot years ago, but you don't have to be a hater.

Let Luke's wings unfold, like a horror movie insect,,,in 3D!

There's still hope for you Rand. I believe in you Brother! Let me give you a big hug, Friendo! Let me drink your milkshake!


Dude, Luke Spermbank is, like, you know, way cool.

Barking Frog

Good for KIRO ... signing Luke was pure genius. I love listening to Dave and Luke. They are both so different yet they compliment each other! To all the Luke haters ... get a life and listen to something else rather than complain!

    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....
