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

The reality of life is that it’s not always fun and laughs, even when doing something of a joyful nature, like Radio City… is for Rob and Jon.  This episode is filled with goodbyes, as tributes are put forth to Kim Shattuck, Ginger Baker, Rip Taylor and Barrie Masters – all too many to take in one week.  But, to take away some of the sting, The Beatles hit #1 in the U.K. and #3 in the U.S. album charts with the re-release of Abbey Road (!); Bernie Sanders lies about having a heart attack; the New York Mets fire manager Mickey Callaway – something that Rob has rallied for; Donald Trump’s public meltdowns spin out of control; R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe releases his first recorded solo track via his website, plus “In Our Heads” and a whole lot more!

Death is never a pleasant topic; saying farewell is hard.  But as you’ll find on Radio City…,  Jon and Rob handle it all with grace and dignity – and humanity.  Which is why this podcast connects so well…
