About/Contact Ralph Zig Tyko
“I’m under arrested development. I’ve the right to remain silent. I just don’t have the ability.”
My name is Ralph Zig Tyko.
I am the host and producer of COMFORTABLY ZONED RADIO.
I am a political lefty, and a cultural Jew. “I believe in miracles, not fairy tales.” -Madelon Chapman
I was born into a dysfunctional family, long before the catch phrase became popular.
I was raised in New York City where I graduated PS 148, Joseph Pulitzer Junior High School 145, and Newtown High School in Elmhurst.
I spent hot summers at Kittatinny Camp and joined the Air Force to escape the cold draft. After Basic Training and Tech School in Texas, I was stationed at Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, California.
After the service, I established roots in California and lived in Sacramento, San Francisco, and the East Bay Area. Over the years I’ve: sold insurance, owned and managed an insurance agency, wrote, performed and produced comedy. I was known as “The Unzipped Mind of Ralph Tyko,” from time to time was billed as Zig Zagman Jr., and also wrote and performed as Max Gornisht.
I was the West Coast Representative for Topps Baseball Card Company, covering the California and Northwest Leagues from 1983- ’96. I produced and hosted a number of televised baseball interviews and the video documentary, “Portland Rockies Inaugural Year 1995.”
I keep busy now as the executive director of People Care 4 Day Care, Inc.
I produce and host a week;y radio show, Comfortably Zoned.
I live in paradise, Alameda, California.
