People may get all worried and superstitious about Thursdays the 13th, but on the October 13, 2016 edition of the 68Comeback Special, it was high-minded and levelheaded all the way through. Literature, worthwhile human pursuits, the appearance in our dreams of well-loved, intelligent people with unreasonable but entirely fulfillable expectations and the right of the artist to have a say in how she or he is represented in the media were all topics of conversation, though it probably never sounded much like that.
