One thing that my kids love it LeapFrog's video Letter Factory. It teaches the letters and their sounds. My 3 year old knows about half of the alaphabet letter sounds just from watching this video a few times. And it is win win the kids get a treat of watching tv while you know they are learning!

No, it's not bad. He's still young and has plenty of time.

Maybe start having a 'letter of the day' thing with him. Point out the letter anywhere you see eat, eat foods that start with that letter, finger paint with pudding (fun, messy, and yummy... all things little boys like), etc....
