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

none of the hate. Well, none of the explicit hate, implied maybe, given Huckabee's extreme conservatism shielded under the nice-guy image.

That's sure the truth and well put. Conservatism these days is so extreme that it is almost synonymous with hate for so many about so much.


I have to add that I predict Huckabee will be the winner because I think Rush has worn out his welcome with all but a few low-lifes who still think in put-downs and name-calling.

casual observer

That's an UGLY affiliate list for Huckabee.


He doesn't even make it in seattle


I was thinking the very same thing. The towns in E. Wa that are carrying him might do pretty well for their particular stations. KONA has a pretty strong signal..you can get it all along the Columbia Gorge from about Cascade Locks to way beyond Pendelton, going east, and once you are over Snoqualmie Pass on 90. Huckabee is actually a perfect match for the Tri-city area. What these stations need to do is stream their broadcasts if they don't already. KCIS is All Religion, All the Time. I dont think he will do much in the Seattle market.


I'll check him out in between Bob Rivers. KCIS is a rather weak station, but so is KLFE.


The Santorum campaign has energized the Religious Right in the GOP and this will boost Huckabee's chance against Rush. Huckabee, an old Baptist minister, can blend religion with politics at a time when Rush is causing some of the fathful to lose faith in him. In additon, if old political polls are to be believed, Huckabee will be a bigger female magnet than Rush.
In any event, it will be interesting and you can bet on one thing, the company losing this race will be doing another round of layoffs.


Huckabee will pick up new listeners as well as steal a few from Rush. Rush will remain the king for as long as he chooses. He has stumbled a number of times before and will again. He still has the best show on all of talk radio.


Well, Rush's show is the meanest.


The meanest show with substance. Mike Malloy and Ed Schultz (to name two lefties) can outmean Rush, but they lose on the substance.


Sorry, I thought we were talking about Rush and Huckabee?


Rush and Huckabee, like two bald men fighting over a comb.


You complain about lack of local talk radio, but you ignore KJR and KIRO AM. It doesn't just have to be politics. Case in point: you often talk about R&D and they are not political. I'd rather read about sports talk or anything local, rather than some network show on KPTK that no one has ever heard of.

Paul if you have news about the sports radio channels please email us at the link above and let us know. We will follow up on it right away. Thanks!


But I though YOU listen to talk radio so I dont have to?!?!?

    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....
