What's on The Tom Sullivan Show 6-2-09

Geithner Gets Laughs
Treasury Secretary “Tiny” Tim Geithner tried to reassure the Chinese government that the dollar is strong and their assets are safe.  How did the Chinese respond? Laughter.  How concerned should we be about the dollar and China’s willingness to lend?  How can we reduce our debt and avoid interest rates from rising?
Car Culture
Remember when cars used to be “cool”?  What happened to America’s car culture?  Have we fallen out of love with the car?  And is this auto-indifference the root of industry's problems?  Tom drives down Memory Lane and asks what went wrong with the American car.  Plus, the latest on the GM and Chrysler bankruptcies.
Too Much Reality
Is reality TV getting too real?  After losing on “Britain’s Got Talent”, singing star Susan Boyle checked herself into a private clinic for "emotional exhaustion".  The stars of "Jon and Kate Plus 8" are being accused of exploiting their children and their marriage is on the rocks.  Tom takes a look at reality television.  Plus, Conan takes over for Leno.
