"Life Matters" is America’s #1 Advice/Personal/
In addition to sharing insights and information on issues and current events not commonly discussed each week in the mainstream media. “Life Matters” also features interviews and health and wellness issues.
This week, Sunday September 25th, 2011, the interview portion of the the show focuses on “How Batman Almost Never Left The Bat Cave” Special Guest, Comic Book Lover, Film and Television Executive Producer, the force behind such projects as National Treasure, Constantine, and countless animated features, Michael Uslan will “Reveal How Rejections and Perseverance Paved The Way to The Batman Movie Franchise”
“When I bought the film rights to Batman in 1977, no one wanted to make a Batman movie,” said Michael Uslan, executive producer – along with partner Benjamin Melnicker -- of the modern Batman film franchise. “Well, not a good one, anyway. First, the president of DC Comics tried to convince me not to buy the film rights. He told me that no one wanted to make a Batman movie, but I made the deal, anyway. Who knew that he was actually on the money? I was rejected by every studio in town, multiple times, before I was able to convince people that Batman would be viable as a serious interpretation and not as a comedy.”
“What we showed with Batman was that you could make a good, dark and serious comic book movie,” Uslan said. “What we proved with the Dark Knight was that we could use comic book-based material to transcend the genre and simply make a good movie, period. The bottom line is that Batman changed the industry, and if I didn’t bloody my knuckles for close to ten years on doors that were repeatedly slammed in my face, comic book related films might not be enjoying the success they are having today.”
Although the show is currently broadcast live from Phoenix, Arizona on terrestrial radio station KKNT AM 960, Listeners can listen on local small market radio stations, visit the shows website at www.LifeMattersMedia.com Sundays - 5 pm to 6pm MST to listen live or check out the show's website Archive to hear the show later.

(*DAR.fm is where “Life Matters” draws its coveted “#1 in America. . .” ranking from.)
"As we put together the show we always envision it being listened to by a family sitting down to Sunday dinner." Says Bofman. With the exception of an interview on a serious subject, an atmosphere of fun, humor and good times permeates the show. "Life Matters" strives to be a fun, entertaining, informative and inspiring hour as my Co-Hosts and I agree, disagree, and discuss what our listeners deal with in their lives. Even so, its important to us that our end product be a show the whole family can enjoy together." In a world of “Shock Jocks” and “Contentious Radio Talk Shows” that apparently is what makes “Life Matters” unique.
