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

Back at it with no time lapse and the world, although “on pause” is still spinning rapidly, and at moments, out of control.  And Jon and Rob are right there to observe and report. 

On this week’s show, we say farewell to legendary Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula and equally legendary Stranglers keyboardist Dave Greenfield (his passing was due to COVID-19); another bad opener for the week on Wall Street means another week on the economic roller coaster.  Alongside this, more storied businesses decide to close permanently rather than prepare for reopening; is this the direction we’re headed in?  J.Crew and Neiman Marcus have declared bankruptcy, while small businesses can’t afford basic rent. Even L.A.’s legendary Troubadour may remain closed permanently.  The numbers of deaths increases to over 70,000 as Trump actually toys with the idea of disbanding the task force – in an almost predictable “are you serious?” moment, “Live And Let Die” is played as Trump tours a mask factory…  meanwhile, a security guard is murdered after telling a customer she couldn’t come into a Family Dollar store in Michigan   BUT – on the positive side, a wonderful story of a farmer in Kansas is rewarded for his kindness and reminds us all the news isn’t always bad.  Plus, another fun and thoughtful “In Our Heads” and so much more…
 
Keep yourself informed and entertained, while thinking – tune into Radio City… and unwind with us!
