An Emmy Award winner, Ken Levine has enjoyed a career spans the worlds of radio, television and Major League Baseball. As a writer, director and producer in television, Ken has worked on such shows as M*A*S*H, Cheers, Frasier, The Simpsons, Everybody Loves Raymond and Dharma & Greg. In addition, he has done radio and TV play-by-play for the Baltimore Orioles, the San Diego Padres and, currently, the Seattle Mariners, as well as hosted radio shows on various stations in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Ken’s new book, The Me Generation… By Me: Growing Up in the ’60s, is a unique look at the major events that shaped the 1960s — The Beatles, Batman, The Beach Boys, Shindig, the civil rights movement, the hippie movement, the Watts riots, Vietnam, JFK, LBJ, Haight-Ashbury and everything in between — all written from the perspective of a future comedy writer. We’ll go back in time and take a look at the ’60s when Ken Levine joins us in our first hour.
Ken Levine will be appearing at the Barnes & Noble in the Grove in Los Angeles on Monday night, Oct. 29 beginning at 7pm.

Also joining us this week will be award-winning writer/producer Rita Lakin. During her 25 years in television, Rita not only created The Rookies, but wrote and produced for such TV shows and made-for-TV movies as The Mod Squad, Peyton Place, Flamingo Road, Nightingales, Hey, I'm Alive, Death Takes a Holiday and Women in Chains. Rita was also one of the first women to work in television as a writer and producer, and along the way, she opened doors for many other women to enter television throughout the ’60s and 1970s, at a time when the industry was still almost entirely run by men. We’ll talk about Rita’s career in television when she joins us in our second hour.

Rita Lakin is also the creator of the best-selling Gladdy Gold series of comedy mystery novels, the latest of which is Getting Old Can Kill You. She will also soon be re-releasing one of her earlier novels, Four Coins of the Kabbalah. For more information, visit

All this, plus Wesley Hyatt with a look at how some of the new fall TV shows are faring. It’ll be a full program as always, and we certainly hope you’ll join us.
