Radio City With Jon Grayson & Rob Ross:  Episode Two Hundred Fifteen

And here we are with an episode recorded in July (don’t worry – we’re getting there!) and just as poignant as if it was recorded today.  As always, even though there are serious topics to be discussed, the boys do share a lot of positive vibes.  Most poignantly, Rob talks about his health, which has improved over the last year and his new part-time job as Jon talks about some of his own health updates (getting older is NOT easy!); Jon talks about his conversation with actor Dean Cameron and other celebrities at a recent sci-fi convention.  Rob gives his critique on the Donna Summer and Mary Tyler Moore documentaries; Jon delivers his take on a Buffalo Springfield documentary; Jon and Rob both dissect the inappropriateness of “concerts”, where performers lip-sync but charge obscene ticket prices and their collective observant puzzlement over the Taylor Swift phenomenon and turn the topic into an astute analysis of the lack of staying power with songs over the last generation or two.  Rob’s review of Django Haskins’ most recent album is the final main portion of the program and it ends with Rob and Jon celebrating ten years of working together (when Rob made his first appearance on Jon’s old Overnight America program on CBS Radio) and ten years passing, since Maxwell’s closed in Hoboken (which started this whole thing off!).

Once again, Jon and Rob keep it smart, thoughtful and compeletely relatable.  So give yourself some time to relax and breathe and tune in to this newest edition of Radio City….  You know you need to.
