  1. Beginning today on 1190 KEX they've made some big changes in their schedule. Dr. Laura & Dave Ramsey have switched time slots but there's more! Mark & Dave are now on an extra hour earlier, beginning at 3pm. So it's Dave Ramsey Noon to 3; Mark & Dave 3to 7pm and Dr. Laura 7pm to 10pm.

    I like these changes! Any time you get an extra hour of "hate free radio" with Mark & Dave is a winner in my book!

    I definitely agree! They are entertaining to listen to and "live and local". A good use of 50,000 watts.

    Any cutbacks in the noon hour news guys?

    Seems like they're doing the full Ramsey-hour clock every hour from noon to 3, instead of doing a news block at noon. It surprised me today but I found it listenable and interesting. Since Clark Howard's been banished from KPAM in favor of more political talk, it's nice hearing something useful in midays. And I didn't miss hearing Laura abusing callers, as she does.

  5. Here's what the nation is reading from All Access:

    ---------------------------KEX/Portland Shuffle Swaps Slots For Ramsey, Dr. Laura---------------------------

    CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KEX-A/PORTLAND has swapped slots for TALK RADIO NETWORK/TAKE ON THE DAY LLC's DR. LAURA SCHLESSINGER and the syndicated DAVE RAMSEY show, reports OREGON MEDIA CENTRAL. The swap moves RAMSEY into the noon-3p slot formerly occupied by a local noon news hour and two hours of DR. LAURA, while the latter moves to 7-10p.

    The change also adds an hour to MARK MASON and DAVE ANDERSON's afternoon show, which expands from 4-7p to 3-7p.

    I like Mark and Dave. I certainly hope their getting compensated appropriately for their extra hours.

    Dr. L. can be an extremely preachy and inconsiderate witch, although, imho, sometimes her callers do need to be told to "just grow up!". I never, ever seek out her show for my listening purposes. (In fact, if Dr. L is all that I can find, I'll be digging through the glove box for an old CD or tape.)

    Since when is Dave Ramsey "hate radio"? I like his back-to-fundamentals lessons in money management -- don't spend more than you make. My commute home is usually in the 7-8pm hour, so KEX is pretty much off the list for my drive home now. At least baseball is back in season, I guess I'll just listen to the Mariners, and ads for Seattle businesses, on KXTG for ~30min. during the drive home now.

    "Since when is Dave Ramsey "hate radio"? "

    Nobody said it was.

    "hope their getting compensated "
    This is incorrect. It should read :hope they're getting compensated....
    Two completely different words with completely different meanings.

    If you actually listened to Mark and Dave, you would know that they call their show "hate free radio".
