02/06/15: Media Roundtable Week In Review; Grandpa's Cough Medicine

Media Roundtable Week in Review Logo

We discuss the week's top news stories with our roundtable of local journalists: Fred Matthews, Examiner blogger; John Burr, Jacksonville Business Journal editor; A.G. Gancarski, Folio Weekly and Florida Politics columnist.

Topics include the mayoral race, an endorsement of Lenny Curry by the Chamber of Commerce-affiliated group JAXBIZ, a JEA committee approving an agreement between the utility and City Hall to help pay down Jacksonville's pension debt, and more.

We also look at the bizarre, strange and just plain ridiculous news from across the Sunshine State in our Only in Florida segment.

And Jacksonville outlaw bluegrass band Grandpa's Cough Medicine gives us a preview of their new album "180 Proof" with a live in-studio performance. You can watch a bonus performance on our Studio 5 Sessions page.

You can subscribe to First Coast Connect's daily podcast in iTunes.
