We kicked off the show with bitchin’ birthday wishes for our mentor, our Master Splinter, our Doc Brown – Sludge. Abe really knows how to make someone feel good on their birthday!

We kicked off the very first show in our new time slot with a brief rundown of our background. Just to let any new or unfamiliar listeners know that we are more than qualified for this spot, both as a collective and as individuals.

Abe, for instance, took the top spot in the 1993 New Lenox Shriner’s Pinewood Derby. Sam brought … Read More

We kicked off the show with a farewell to you, our loyal Saturday audience. February 16, 2011, was the first time you welcomed us into your cars, your homes & your lives. Alas, in life, and certainly in this business, change is the only constant. So from all of us here at The Abe Kanan Show, we thank you for … Read More
