I had lots of fun on the Lance Roberts show today.

Every time I am on with Lance, I cannot help thinking about WLS.

On Sunday evenings, Art Roberts had an oldies show with the theme "Hey baby they're playin our song"

Forget about that. For economic reality, check out Lance Roberts.

I do not know why my lighting is so red in the videos, it's not shown up that way before. Otherwise the quality is good.

What the Next Recession Will Look Like

Don't Expect a Crash

In that last clip, I side with economist Daniel Lacalle in that we will not have a "crash".

Curiously, it will be far worse than a crash for Pension plans.

Side Notes

Recall the Buckingham's hit "Hey Baby they're Playin Our Song".

The Buckinghams named their hit song after the first edition of Art's show, on WLS in the 60's.

Real Radio notes "The theme song was written for the show by the Chess Records studio band. Leonard Chess was one of my dearest friends and the theme song was his gift to me in 1965. I used it on WLS on Sunday nights for 5 years."
