Radio Comics

      Hello everyone, hope all is well.  This is just to let you know that I am talking comic books and pop culture every Friday morning at 8:15 am on 101.5 FM radio and on 1330am simulcast.

     Give it a listen, it's a lot of fun and a peek at the behind-the-scenes of comics and other pop culture genres.

     So join me and Steve, Linda, Chelsea and Joe every Friday morning at 8:15.  We'll talk comics!

     Take care and adopt a (one that is commented on over the air waves) comic book today!  

Stan Lee and X-Mas Celebration

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  This past week has been a big one in the world of comics.  Of course there was Christmas and guess what I gave out as presents...that's right, comics!  Of course I received some also.  And I hope everyone had a nice holiday.

     Let's not forget Dec. 22nd, just last week, when Stan Lee had his 95th birthday.  The magazine, "Alter-Ego" just did a special on Stan.  Check out your local comic shop and pick one up.  Stan, as well as Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko revolutionized that 1st wave of Marvel Comics which has since swept the world.

     So in conclusion, yah for Christmas and gooooo Stan!

     Take care and adopt a (Christmas or Stan Lee) comic book today!

Great New Cleveland Book!

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Yes, Gray's publishing has done it AGAIN!  "Cleveland Radio Tales" is out and brought to you by the same authors (Michael and Janice Olszewski) that brought you the wonderful books on Cleveland's television history.

     Can you imagine a radio exorcist?  How about a DJ that performed his show in the nude?  Did you know that Jack Paar, pre-Tonite Show, almost lost his job as he saved Cleveland from the Orson Welles Martian scare?

      I'll be talking about this and other items from this great Christmas present book over the next few weeks.  Stay tuned.

     Take care and adopt a (Cleveland radio history) book today!

Lanigan is Back!

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Today I'm stepping aside from comics to tell you that John Lanigan, icon of Cleveland radio, has finally got his memoirs out from Greys Publishing.

     It is a great book that covers over 50 years in the radio business and has many funny stories and fateful ways that a young 18 year old broke into the field and stayed there until he retired.  Over 50 years of tales from this Cleveland icon and John covers all of them.  Yes, especially the 25 years on the Prize movie on our own Channel 43!

     I've met John a couple of times in the past and believe me, the book even captures the way he speaks, now THAT is a great book!

     Don't forget, Christmas is right around the corner, so check out your nearest Barnes and Noble to pick up this enjoyable life story of a great guy who spent most of his working life in Cleveland, Ohio!

Bendis at DC

     Hello Everyone, hope all is well.  I guess it is now official, Brian Michael Bendis, the one-time Cleveland, Ohio writer that took Marvel by storm has signed an exclusive with DC Comics.

     According to his press release, Brian made a comment that jokingly amounted to, "Now I can go over and mess DC up."
