Radio City with Jon Grayson and Rob Ross:  Episode Thirty Three
Usually, the boys do that thing with a smart remark, a wink and a laugh.  But this particular show was recorded later than usual – done on the Monday when everyone was trying to come to grips with the Las Vegas massacre, only to be hit with the devastating news that rock legend/god Tom Petty had died.  It took a lot for Jon and Rob to carry forth and do the show as best they could under the circumstances and it’s to their credit that they managed to balance it all.  So aside from their assessment of the Las Vegas horror and an obviously loving tribute to Tom Petty, listen as they have the last word on the President’s disastrous visit to Puerto Rico; the welcomed return of “South Park” and “Tosh.O” to Comedy Central; the rockabilly sounds of Lara Hope & The Ark Tones and the brilliant debut of Sven-Erik Olsen; the next installment of Rob’s mini-series, “1984 – The Year The American Underground Came Above Ground”, focusing on The Replacements’ Let It Be; the winding down of a draining baseball season and the bumbling start to the N.F.L. campaign and, without fail, “In Our Heads”.
So sit back and take this one in.  This show offers more than just cheap laughs – it also offers thought and hope…
