Radio City With Jon Grayson & Rob Ross:  Episode One Hundred Fifty Six

In a world spinning completely out of control, Rob and Jon immediately bounce back from the seriousness of 155 with a much more measured, relaxed and positivity-driven show.  Most saliently, Episode 156 officially marks 3 full years’ worth of Radio City… – this podcast began in February 2017 and have now reached another milestone!

While things haven’t returned to calm, the boys veer away from the now-hollow egg of destruction masked as protests and look at the un-constructive panderings of politicians to put a salve on an already open wound; the foolishness of making proclamations that are meritless when you don’t have a clear set of plans or alternatives; the bombast of New York City’s mayor not wanting his daughter’s mugshot on social media after her arrest for looting during a “protest”.  Irresponsible reporting trickles even to music as a beloved Los Angeles music venue gets a premature obituary, while a legendary record store in New York shutters its doors quietly forever after 60-plus years; the insanity of Warner Bros. cartoons “removing” guns from characters’ storylines; the annual reappraisal/revisitation to R.E.M.’s Fables Of The Reconstruction on the 35th anniversary of its release; a warm and thoughtful chat on how to regain one’s sense of balance and clarity after the last few weeks (and subsequently months), a different twist on “In Our Heads” and, as always, so much more…

This is a show to help you breathe and think clearly again – and Jon and Rob take you to where you want and need to be.  So sit back, relax and allow yourself to be re-focused with Radio City…
