Don’t You Know There Is A 68Comeback On Here?

On the August 7, 2014 edition of the 68Comeback Special, we celebrated grown men who spite children and camping with cousins, and we finally went public with our overwhelming fear of people with small teeth. Did you miss it? Do you feel bad? The help us figure out how to do podcasts already!

‘Cause the 68Comeback Never Gives It Away

Whoooooa, that was some nap! What time is it? WHAT? Ah well. The blog took a little bit of a hiatus, but things are different now, so, on the July 17, 2014 edition of the 68Comeback Special, Tom didn’t show because he’s a very important man, but Craig handled the thing mostly ably. We sent some love out to North Side’s Time to Shine/K-Days with a quick set, Gabe and Kosta stopped by with a fun Summertime Fun Report, and then simians took over the world (I wish).

CJSR FunDrive 2013: Adventures In Giveaways

So here’s the deal: on last Thursday’s edition of the 68Comeback Special, our first of CJSR FunDrive 2013, we raised $1700, a formidable sum without a doubt, and we thank all who donated. High fives all around.

But that stuff’s all in the past, and we’ve got the shiny future of THIS Thursday’s 68Comeback to look forward to.  History has shown that we are not afraid to pull out the giveaway draws in week 2, and so it’s important to consider what, exactly, that means. Saint Raymond has once again smiled upon us and delivered a box of his B+W books. They are tidy, reasonable testaments to how completely awesome he is. We gave some away last week AND WE WILL PROBABLY DO IT AGAIN.

Also, it appears that we have come into temporary possession of these Nirvana anniversary editions: the Nevermind 20th Anniversary box set (4 CDs, 1 DVD, oy!), and the In Utero 20th Anniversary double CD set. You say, “WHAT?REALLY?” and we say it’s true, we’re going to have a draw for the two of them together in the same package at the very end of the show, from the names of everyone who pledges on the 68Comeback Special in 2013.

And also again, do you know about Queen of Wundi? It is a generous gift from Wunderbar, wherein an upcoming evening’s proceedings at Wunderbar will be dedicated to the winner of ANOTHER draw at the end of the show. Queen of Wundi features: Your name in lights or at least on the gig sheet, 2 free admissions, a refreshment allowance, an option on photographs taken of you wearing a crown, and at least one of the bands on the bill will play a song that has been named for you.

Purely ceremonial.  Freakin’ exclusive. Queen of Wundi. And you could be the first one ever.

And all you have to do to enter is something you’ve probably been meaning to do anyway – give your pals at 68Comeback Special a pat on the back during CJSR-FM’s FunDrive 2013. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is. Your first step is tuning in tomorrow, Thursday October 3, between 3 and 5pm.

Bring Him 68Comeback Or Alive, Lawd Lawd, Bring Him 68Comeback Or Alive

As the last ‘regular’ show before fundraising broke out, it was clear from the get-go that the September 19, 2013 edition of the 68Comeback Special had something to prove. By the end of it, Tom had taken a stand against the notion that any given quality – intelligence, honesty, emotionalism – is improved with addition of ‘childlike’ as a modifier, everyone was thinking they’d like to see O Brother Where Art Thou again sometime soon,  and what? Don Ho? Geeeez.
