Live from the 2010 LA auto show with Kudlow and Batchelor

John Batchelor radio show

CNBC’s Larry Kudlow and John Batchelor, host of the John Batchelor radio show, talked to me about the pre Los Angeles auto show parties and the General Motors IPO.
Kudlow asked about the Volt, and of course the tax credit.
The first event I went to was a Ford Ecoboost with thirteen cars in fuel leading segments, then off to a Rolls-Royce party on Rodeo Dr at the designer Bijan’s showroom.
Kudlow and Batchelor caught up to me just as I arrived at the Cadillac design center.
