I saw the Hurricane Sandy storm surge hit Wall St. and keep going higher and higher. Something I'll never forget. Read my report.One of the most fascinating, interesting and brilliant men I have ever met, Alexei Kondratiev, passed away early in the morning on May 28, 2010 from a heart attack. One of the many radio shows I did with him is posted along with a written eulogy. On this Site you can see what our upcoming shows will be, review the guest list, listen to Archived Shows and Podcasts or a Live WBAI Feed or a WBAI Archive, and even read some good comics and articles. Plus find out what's happening on Eco-Logic, Ken's environmental show. Bookmark this page and return often. There will always be Something New of interest to comics fans, and even some silly fun thrown in for good measure. No casinos, Canadian drugs or any of the other stuff that some spammer (Not Me!) showing the comicbookradioshow.com web address as their "from" is trying to sell you.

DVD Version of 'Nuff Said! Available!
I put some
of my thoughts and experiences about
I found out on Dec. 1, 2003 that 'Nuff Said! is not and never was "on hiatus," it is cancelled. Several new schedules have been proposed since then and 'Nuff Said! was never on them. Although there will be no regularly-scheduled episodes of 'Nuff Said!, but there are segments aired whenever another producer gives me part of their time slot. Check this web site often, especially on Tuesdays.
Hosted by Ken Gale
Evolution Comics, Ken and Mercy's independent comic books.
The Comic Book Legal
Defense Fund's Petition for Discretionary Review has been refused.
That refers to the 9/23/02 'Nuff Said! special. A Dallas, Texas
comic book store sold an adult comic book to an adult... and was busted
for it! The case got to court and the comic shop manager lost! He
was sentenced to six months in jail plus a year's probation plus a
$4000.00 fine. For more on this story, click here.
During the trial, the prosecutors stated that "Comic books, traditionally
what we think of, are for kids." As if! The state of Texas called no
expert witnesses. Seems to me that no law was broken, but plenty of
prejudice was displayed by the Texas court.
There always seems to be big changes at the Pacifica Foundation which owns WBAI-FM. The make-up of the Board of Directors was changed drastically in January, 2002 and the banned and fired returned to the airways. In June, 2002, the program schedule of WBAI was changed drastically with very little notice to producers or listeners. That's when 'Nuff Said! ceased to be a regularly-scheduled weekly show and when Eco-Logic began. In January, 2004 all the stations' appointed Local Advisory Boards were replaced with new elected Boards with increased representation and powers. That seems to have caused increased factionalism.

In September 1993 Ed Menje and Ken
Gale came to the realization that "With great power comes great
responsibility." And so, pooling their extraordinary abilities and
knowledge of the comics industry, they embarked on bringing sound to a
medium which had rarely known it. Serving as a forum for comics pros and
fans, their show explored the full diversity of the field with
entertaining and intelligent interviews and discussion. From golden age
cartoonists to the most recent indie creators, listen to enough episodes
and you'll hear it all in full spectrum stereo and streaming
real audio. OCCASIONAL SEGMENTS CAN BE HEARD ON
