And experts say this past week's market volatility,a 245 point gain followed by a 335-point slide, shows retirement accounts are no sure things. Monday at 9:00 The Sound of Ideas, we'll explore retirement savings with James W. Russell, author of "Social Insecurity," who laments the loss of old-fashioned pensions . Join host Mike McIntyre.

Weekly Regional Roundtable

Weekly Regional Roundtable October 10, 2014

One suburban department isn't thinking cameras as it prepares to bury the department canine amid community anger that the dog's death was avoidable, and an apology from his human partner. And we'll rock the list of who's now eligible for the next induction ceremonies at Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Join host Rick Jackson for The Sound of Ideas.
