Republicans who tune into KFYI-550 on any weekday morning between 7-10am will hear the daily critique of Republican elected officials by the nearly famous Barry Youn(g). This has been going on for several months now with little critical attention paid to any of the other parties elected and unelected. For example, how often has the “nearly famous” Barry Young show given any critical analysis to Pearce challenger, Jerry Lewis or known domestic violence state legislator, Daniel Patterson?
We have decided to ask our readers to participate in a simple poll, “Has KFYI’s Barry Young gone too far” because the perception is that Young has become gratuitous in his attacks on Republicans.
Here is your chance to vote in the poll but more importantly (and stay on topic!), voice your opinion on whether or not certain local conservative talk show personalities have become part of the circular firing squad.
If you want to vote, the poll is on the right sidebar.
Update: Sonoran Alliance is not part of any boycott efforts.
Tonight on the Alexander & Goldman Show: Bankruptcy attorneys discuss bankruptcies, mortgages and foreclosures
Stay tuned afterwards for ALRA On the Air, they have a terrific show lined up from 7-8pm with Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio discussing the Phoenix food tax and Senator Sylvia Tenney Allen talking about the Wallow fire. Is an environmentalist wacko to blame?
Arizona has several talented conservatives on the radio. Here’s a rundown of some great interviews over the last week.
Hair on Fire with Barbara featuring an interview with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and former Arizona GOP Chairman Randy Pullen.
The Alexander & Goldman show featured an interview with Sheriffs Paul Babeu and Larry Dever available here.
Tea Party Talk with Van discussing a possible run for public office.
To any other conservative radio hosts we forgot to mention, please send us an email to include you in the lineup!
Tonight on the Alexander & Goldman Show: Arizona after SB 1070; then Washington, Wall Street & financial theft
The liberal media is falling all over itself trying to show that Arizona is worse off after passing SB 1070 last year. Both the Arizona Republic and the East Valley Tribune are running dire articles about what it has done to Arizona (at least NPR has balanced coverage). Besides the fact that the toughest parts of SB 1070 haven’t even gone into effect, thanks to the federal government suing Arizona and getting an injunction against them, the evidence is to the contrary. Last year, the census found that Arizona is the second fastest growing state in the country. Last fall, we were 12th in the country for job creation. We will get to the bottom of the spin.
This Friday, we’re asking who you listen to and who you think has the best political/talk radio show in Arizona. We’re trying to cover the entire State of Arizona from Flagstaff to Yuma and Phoenix to Tucson. Arizona has an abundance of politically astute, satirical and entertaining radio personalities. The list (with links) includes:

- Live & Local with Russ Clark – KBLU 560 (Yuma)
- Mitch & Joe Show – 105.1 Big Talker (Flagstaff)

- John C. Scott – KJLL 1330 (Tucson)
- Mike Broomhead – KFYI 550 (Phoenix)
- Bill Buckmaster – KVOI 1030 (Tucson)

- The Jon Justice Show – KQTH 104.1 (Tucson)

This is your chance to vote for your favorite daily political radio show and tell us why they have the political news and talk in Arizona. (And if we’ve forgotten someone, please let us know!)
(The poll will remain open for one week and limits voting to one vote/IP address.)
Jay Heflin with The Hill is reporting that Congressman and former US Senate candidate, J.D. Hayworth, has been chosen to be a national advocate for the TEA Party. For those who have followed Congressman Hayworth’s career, this is an excellent choice by leadership of the TEA Party movement
In 2009, prior to Rick Santelli’s famous words on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile, Hayworth was instrumental in giving rise to the Arizona TEA Party by lending his voice and by giving voice to leaders here in Arizona. As a broadcaster at KFYI, Hayworth promoted grassroots and TEA Party gatherings across Arizona including the famous 6,000 person march on the Sate Capitol on April 15, 2009.
Now as the TEA Party continues to make progress in States like Alaska, Delaware, Kentucky and Nevada, Hayworth’s understanding of the issues and his political redemption from a Congress that once lost its way will give further credence to this important American political movement.
OK, I admit, I’ve been waiting a long time for this partnership to take place…
