Came To Your Party, Ate All The Hors D’oeuvres, ‘Cause We’re 68Comeback

It was August 22, 2013, and the 68Comeback Special wanted to make their listeners happy. So they bitterly mocked those who would suggest that summer was ending, replayed a song for Chad that they played for him a couple of weeks before but he didn’t hear and rocked their friend, Sam. They tried to get to the bottom of the most minor plot point to be found in all six Star Wars movies and Gabe delivered an all-time classic Summertime Fun report (did you miss it? Tough shit).

Better Take Care Of Your 68Comeback ‘Cause Nobody Else Will

Oh, he is most definitely Chad, and during the August 1, 2013 edition of the 68Comeback Special, after Craig had bailed out to go camping and Tom had bailed out in the name of billionaire playboyism, he was at his very, very Chaddest, interviewing the two armadillos and the passenger pigeon from Frank Zappa’s touring band in the mid-70’s,  while simultaneously digging a hole to Argentina (which is like digging a hole to China, but with different angles). What would we do without this everyday hero? A whole lot more crying, that’s for sure.

I Need A 68Comeback And I Hope You Understand

The truth of the July 25, 2013 edition of the 68Comeback Special is that it was all things to everyone, as long as everyone is all about the bitter grumblings of CJSR’s vinyl library, the differences between ‘festivals’ and ‘gatherings’, how Craig is able to control the entire universe to a very limited degree, and how Teddy Pendergrass will change your life if you let him.

When You Know That Your 68Comeback Is Close At Hand

Tom flew the July 11, 2013 edition of the 68Comeback Special solo because Craig’s mommy was in town and also there were other things that complicated getting to the station just enough that he decided to be a big baby about it and not come at all. But look at this list, and consider how much more impressive it was that each and every one of these bands played each and every one of these songs live in the studio. If you missed it, well, all we can say is, ‘Screw you, buddy, screw you.’

But You Just Gave Me That 68Comeback Look

On the July 4, 2013 edition of the 68Comeback Special, we tried to get you to feel bad without knowing you were feeling bad, we made up stories about Dr. Dave McNeilly (sorry Doc), we met, then exceeded, our quota for French song titles, heaped an appropriate amount of derision upon London, and we flew the Zebra Pulse flag (again). And so you know, Gabe’s Summertime Fun Report was a thing of beauty that you will regret missing (if you missed it) for a long, long time, so don’t let that happen again.
