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).

Two Oregon teens are suing the state for failing to protect itself from the effects of climate change. They also say that this is causing our water supply to deteriorate.
Let's talk a little more about these two girls. The report from the lawsuit says that these girls enjoy doing things like going to the beach, skiing, and backpacking in Oregon's forests.
Now..I won't claim to know these girls, but doesn't it seem like you would need to drive a car to get to the beach, or the mountain, or the forest?
So doesn't that mean that they are actually contributing to the problem that they're suing the state about?
It doesn't make a lot of sense to me, but I'm only one man.
I had the attorneys representing the girls on the show today to present their case. You be the judge on whether this lawsuit is justified.
We talked for about 30 minutes, and I had to blow up a few of Rep. Esquivel's ideas, but it was an intelligent conversation.
After I finished with Rep. Esquivel, I received a call from my favorite type of caller: a naysayer!
Chris was his name, and he said he was going to beat me over the head with my own words. Was he successful?
Take a listen, and judge for yourself...
The cost of replacing the bridge has increased dramatically even before construction of the new bridge has begun. The new bridge, cascade points out, is twice the width of the current bridge but the tens of thousands of cars that use it every day…get no more room.
Instead, taxpayers are going to be forced to fund a 300 million dollar bridge that provides two huge sidewalks for bikes and pedestrians, and gives nothing more to cars.
This is more of Portland’s war on the car, a fight that’s waged nearly every day.
Inadequate freeways force cars onto surface streets, and when that becomes dangerous for residents the city’s answer is to reduce the size of the neighborhood street.
The Rose city is choking off the arteries that move goods, services and workers around the region and then people wonder why jobs are scarce and paychecks are thin.
Mayor Sam Adams wants to be a recycling hero but even though the city’s residents already recycle better than just about any other city in the country, that’s not enough. So a couple of years ago, he decided that if you live in Portland you’ll get half as much garbage service, pickup every two weeks, for the same price people paid for weekly service.
Then your recycling yard debris and chicken bones will get picked up every week. This failed to take into account diapers, for adults or infants, rotting food and all the other stinky stuff that goes into the can.
A few people objected at the time, but government relates differently to citizens these days. They hold lots of public hearings take note of your objections and then do what they planned to do anyway.
This weekend, temperatures peaked over a hundred degrees and I’m wondering how many people have a garage or backyard that now smells like Tijuana. Will liberty loving Portlanders challenge this stinking recycle plan…or just go quietly accept the dictates of their masters?
In the beginning Govt created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the economy was formless and void, darkness was over the surface of the ATMs, and the Spirit of Govt was hovering over the land.
3 And Govt said, “Let there be spending,” and there was spending. 4 Govt saw that the spending was good, and that it separated the light from the darkness. 5 Govt called the spending Investments, and this he did in the first day.
6 Then Govt said, “Let there be roads and bridges across the waters, and let dams divide the waters from the waters.” 7 Thus Govt made the infrastructure and the patronage jobs for eternity under the firmament from the Potomac which was above the firmament; and it was so. 8 And Govt called the firmament Washington. This Govt did on the second day.
9 Then Govt said, “Let the regulations and the guidlines under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the Bureaus appear”; and it was so. 10 And Govt called the Bureaus demigovts, and the gathering together of them He called AFSCME. And Govt saw that it was good.
First of all, there are none within a hundred miles and I’d like to get one of their delicious chicken sandwiches.
Meantime, Portland, keeping it weird, has Homosexual Hamburger Mary’s getting into the fight with a hate free chicken sandwich. Where’s the hate boys? Dan Cathy of Chick Fil A, for the record, didn't say he opposed Gay Marriage. He said he supported the biblical version of marriage. That’s a good and positive statement.
But while some gays are taking this in stride as the personal statement of a man’s personal beliefs, the victimhood seeking part of the gay community sees it as an insult. And they’re determined to punish this man and his company for voicing his opinion and believing in the bible. That’s un-American and those homosexuals who take this position should be ashamed of themselves.
President Obama meantime, lauded as the first gay president, is actually the coward the gays should be bashing. He’s a switch hitter. First he’s opposed to gay marriage cause that makes black voters happy. Then he decides he needs his gay friends so he says he’s personally in favor of same sex marriage, which is a contradiction in terms to begin with.
But he also says he’s not going to do a damn thing about homosexual marriage AS PRESIDENT. Hey Barry, if you straddle the fence any more, you’re going to end up with a fence post where it don’t belong.
