  1. Meanwhile everywhere else in Seattle… “zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz”

    So could someone do something interesting in TV or radio just once this year for the entertainment value? Because nothing on air is “interesting” except to the fake ass corporate groupthink manipulated focus group voodoo BS cheerleader sections which are constantly drooling all over themselves in trade journals like obedient cubicle chamber servants.

  2. KOMO radio call letters will change. Studios and offices are being constructed in facilities in the International District of Seattle.
