For the past 25 or so years, I have had a studio on South Beach. From time to time whenever my friends or friends of my friends were in town they would stop by for a cup of coffee and some stimulating conversation. Someone suggested that our conversations, along with some of the quirkier interviews I did for Alive on South Beach, would make an interesting radio show. After listening to hours and hours of taped interviews, I selected those I think are an entertaining mix. So sit back and ENJOY!

That was in the 60’s, and it led to the rise of alternative (or underground) newspapers. These newspapers gave rise to the alternative genre of comic strips called “COMIX”. Dennis Kitchen, a pioneer in publishing Comix, talks about the resurgence of this politically incorrect genre as, once again, the public stops trusting the government and the media.
