I never thought to write all this down before, but a friend asked me to hop on his podcast to talk about our favorite band, R.E.M. This is my attempt to get my thoughts together before that conversation.

I honestly don’t know when I first heard the band, but I do know it was in high school, with the Green album.

I didn’t listen to them all day every day, and there’s a lot of their catalogue (covers, concert films etc.) I feel like I’ve enabled to be new to me years later.

This has been a blessing in later…

This has been a blessing in later years as they now have the ability to become new to me…
