Remember The Comeback We Share Today

We wait a long time every year for this day to finally arrive and we were half-convinced that 2016 would try to do something to fuck it up, but we also know that Rocktember is bigger and better than any one shitty year. SO – on the September 1, 2016 edition of the 68Comeback Special, we considered context in terms of how funny a singer’s voice sounds, celebregretted the disappearance of the man who so thoroughly ruined Labour Day weekend TV watching for all time, offered notes to new bands for naming songs, and for just minute, we thought about how awesome it would be if we were David Stone.
