Will KRWM WARM 106.9 jump into Christmas first, with KCMS Spirit 105.3 close behind?

Will Seattle radio undergo any format changes after the holiday?

We will soon find out whether Dori Monson will continue to host Seahawks pre & post-game shows. Back to his chat show at KIRO FM after another apology this week, Monson’s return is rare in this era of cancel culture.

  1. What a depressing commentary on the state of commercial radio.

    In this time of pandemical isolation, “Our Auto Erotic Expert” would pull better numbers on a late Saturday morning, following “Around The Horn With Kenny G”, in which Mr. Gorlick blows the same note for 120 minutes straight.

    That song list says two things: (1) Focus groups must be abolished; (2) the media influencers at P1Media Group and MRC Entertainment, to clear their heads, must spend the entire winter chained to trees in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey.

  2. The key to programming for the Christmas season is the drop ins: “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid,” “Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings,” “Keep the change, you filthy animal,” and “Do you hear it? It’s a funny, squeaky sound.”

    1. And traditional Christmas music. The kind we played back in the 1970s. Piano and orchestra. Music dating back to the WWII era.

      1. Our family had a 78 rpm Columbia album of the Lyn Murray Singers. Four discs = eight Christmas Carols. My parents even let me take that album to school when I was in the fourth grade. I stood up in front of the class and announced and played them all on the hand-cranked Victrola manufactured by The Victor Talking Machine Company of Camden, New Jersey. From the inside of the lid, Nipper looked on with obvious pride.

      1. I threw my back out once doing the Gregorian limbo.

        A cruel lesson: Never chase Carmelite water and Rompope with Carthusian Chartreuse on the rocks.

        “Brothers, come quickly. I am drinking stars!”
