Rob Ross has been, for good, bad or indifferent, involved in the music industry for over 30 years – first as guitarist/singer/songwriter with The Punch Line, then as freelance journalist, producer and manager to working for independent and major record labels. He resides in Staten Island, New York with his wife and cats; he works out a lot, reads voraciously, loves Big Star and his orange Gretsch. Doesn’t that make him neat?
Radio City with Jon Grayson and Rob Ross: Episode Thirty Five
There’s never a dull moment or a lull in conversation with Jon and Rob, who just know how to break down and dissect what’s happening around us. So on this 35th episode, the boys begin with the “who’s going to the World Series?” assessments; one film maker’s burning bridges with a blog post that he proudly shared (while pissing off a LOT of people who took taking angry notice); the bullshit handwringing nonsense of Hollywood as they now turn to Harvey Weinstein as their latest devil incarnate to publicly roast; Columbus Day in New York and the “being angry about something… anything” while having the flames fanned by New York City’s misguided mayor; Black Flag’s My War on the next installment of “1984…”; Populuxe video’s for “Garage Sale”; the new album from Dori Freeman, the outstanding Letters Never Read and capping it with “In Our Heads”
Sometimes you may become uncomfortable; sometimes you may become outraged; sometimes you can’t help but laugh and sometimes, you may be inspired. And that clearly means Jon and Rob are doing their job and you’re getting it.
