Scold Them When They Comeback Dirty, Crying

No Time Left For Yourself Because Comebacks That You’ve Made

On the March 23, 2017 edition of the 68Comeback Special, we told two absolutely true stories about Dolly Parton, one patently false one about kd lang, and we learned what horn sections are really for. There were songs about colours, songs with exceedingly noodly guitars and songs that were all too reminiscent of This Mortal Coil. All in two hours. Imagine if your life was as to the point.

On the March 3, 2017 edition of the 68Comeback Special, we tried out some new catchphrases and celebrated Mark E.

The Meanest Hunk O’ Comeback That Anybody Ever Seen

On the February 16, 2017 edition of the 68Comeback Special, we discussed the rulingness of Amy van Keeken and Jim Croce, gave preference to everyone’s early work, never really reached a conclusion one way or the other about babies on the moon.
