Lars got his start in radio at age 16 spinning records (remember 45s?) and reading news, sports and weather (twice an hour) on KTIL (The Mighty 1590) from a little cinderblock building on the edge of a cow pasture in Tillamook, Oregon (75 miles West of Portland, Oregon).
36 years later, he’s only moved 75 miles east to Portland and light years to “the Right”. Emmy and Peabody award winner Lars Larson brings nearly four decades of experience as a radio and television journalist to the microphone for six hours of the best talk radio in America. Six hours of daily prep keep The Lars Larson Show on top of the news and top-of-mind for listeners across the country.
Along the way, Lars has worked for more than a dozen radio stations and five television stations. Today, Lars holds down the fort from 12pm – 4pm on Radio Northwest flagship FM NEWS 101 KXL. His local talk show airs on seventeen stations in the Pacific Northwest (and earns him the biggest local talk radio audience in the region).

The sequester is coming, and it looks like there's nothing that will happen in the next 48 hours to stop it. But the President and the crazies in DC are on a crusade to scare every American into thinking that you're going to have to live life without meat inspectors, with longer lines at the airport, and with less teachers for your kids.
The reality is that the dollar amount of these cuts is relatively small; a mere 2.4% of the federal budget. But the President seems to be hellbent on making the cuts in the places where it hurts the most. The logical thing would be to ask each government agency to look through their budget and find a way to cut that small percentage out of their department.
But when it comes to our government...logic is rarely present.
Now the government has made the decision to release somewhere between 6,000 and 10,000 illegal aliens who were already on their way somewhere, and they're using the sequester as the excuse.
Congressman Bob Goodlatte joined me on the program today, and says that the release is nothing more than a scare tactic that will end up costing the taxpayers more money at the end due to the additional crimes that will be committed.
So if a paying customer came to you and was prepared to drop in the neighborhood of $25,000 on advertising, you might think that something like that would be an easy yes from the station sales department. Well in Washington D.C., they're either rolling in money, or trying to keep a certain type of message from getting out.
Steve Vaus is a Grammy winning recording artist who you may know as Buck Howdy. He's been in the recording industry for years, and is, as he puts it, a rabid supporter of the second amendment. He decided to invest $25,000 of his own money to put a pro second amendment ad on the radio, and the stations in D.C. that he has approached have turned him away, saying that his message is "too controversial."
Listen to this ad that he wants to put on the air. I'd challenge you to tell me that you think this it controversial. I feel like this is a man with a god given talent trying to let the people of Washington D.C. know that there are people out there who DO support the second amendment, despite what the Marxist-In-Chief might think of your gun rights.

Here's how the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper has it:
The Oregon House voted 38-18 to grant in-state tuition rates to undocumented Oregon high school graduates. The bill now goes to the Senate.
House Bill 2787 would grant in-state tuition for undocumented students who have attended school in the country for at least five years; studied at an Oregon high school for at least three years, and graduated; and show intention to become a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident.
Yet every time I have talked with ICE they tell me that absent a change in federal law, And excepting cases of political asylum an illegal who is in our country illegally cannot legalize their status without first returning home and getting in line with everyone else.
So...how does someone "show they intend ..." When it's not legally possible
Thus, a reporter might ask, is this essentially illegal requirement of the law simply inserted to give an air of legitimacy to the law, with the authors intending that the state will NEVER actually enforce this provision?
I'd ask you...if it was a republican bill with such an openly fraudulent provision ...wouldn't you call it into question?
And here's the real significance of this...
The illegals you so sympathetically portray in the paper (like the long term illegal and union official who broke the law)
WHEN THEY GET THAT DEGREE AND STILL HAVE NO SSN NUMBER...WHAT GOOD IS THAT DEGREE WHEN THE LAW SAYS THEY CAN'T LEGALLY WORK IN THIS COUNTRY
It's strange that the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper would pillory any american who worked a job with fraudulent credentials yet support the right of 100,000+ oregon illegals to do the same
The GOP needs some help. There's no easier way to say it. So what do you do?
RNC Chair Reince Preibus joined guest host Rich Miniter, and he had some very candid words about the republican party and what needs to happen for the party to return to prominence.
But when it comes to matters of space exploration, and defense against things like meteors and asteroids, the planet is still in the dark ages in some respects.
Dr. Travis Taylor, who you might know from the National Geographic channel's show "Rocket City Rednecks," says that the task of preventing an asteroid impact at this point in time is practically impossible, and, unless there is a great advance in the technology to protect the planet outside of atmosphere, we will be hit be an asteroid someday. It could be tomorrow, or 1,000 years from now.
Dr. Taylor joined me today on the program and talked about what might need to be put in place to defend the planet from these sorts of threats.
