    Progressive Talk KPTK 1490 AM is still on the air ... I'm listening to it right here as I type this comment. It's the Mike Malloy show (a rebroadcast, I'm sure).

    Here's their weekday schedule, and here's what they play on the weekend.

    Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration. -- K.Marx A.Lincoln

      You are listening now, but I suspect not for long...

        about KPTK in Seattle, or is all this just speculation, assumption, and rumor? If the latter, it would have been like me speculating that every hip rock station in the Bay Area was going to go country just because KSAN did.

        KPTK also doesn't seem to suffer from KPOJ's reception problems, described here by commenters.

        Why are war casualty counts "American troops" and "others" but never "human beings"?

          We're losing too many progressive stations.  I hated to lose Green 960 - one of the stations I streamed almost all the time.

          Consider it just that right now, though I suspect it's in planning.

          Funny, Norman just hosted a party up there.

          I want to be wrong.
