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

Getting back to full-on reportage and a healthy back-and-forth, Jon and Rob are rejuvenated with this latest installation of Radio City…  and as usual, there’s no shortage of worthwhile topics. 

Among the items discussed, New York City mayor deBlasio actually tells people to report to cops anyone they know/see not practicing social distancing; Trump tweets to the states to “liberate”, essentially calling for insurrection.  A ”liberation” protest is called for in Rob’s home borough of Staten Island; the only people who showed up were  the police.  deBlasio – yet again – arbitrarily says he will close public pools and beaches:  not his decision to make.  Still trying to best Cuomo.  Cuomo, in turn, eviscerates Trump during a press conference, after Trump has the audacity to say “stop complaining”. 

On the COVID-19 front, musical legend Wreckless Eric has been diagnosed with coronavirus; Matthew Seligman, Soft Boys bass player dies from it; plus, a look at China’s economy, people who are sheltering-in-place are becoming bigger idiots and lunatics on social media, instead of actually engaging in thoughtful dialogue.  Whining, selflessness and spreading conspiracy-theory madness is appalling – and, of course, “In Our Heads”.
As the boys readjust themselves and return to what they do best, isn’t it comforting to know that Radio City… is here for you – the way you want to hear it?
