A Book Of Poems, A Book Of Knowing Comeback

On the June 15, 2017 edition of the 68Comeback Special, practically all we could think about was how it was just a week until the one thing and the other thing, but we strove hard to remain in the moment, except there were a few times when we caught ourselves thinking about the past, but in those cases we tried not to be too hard on ourselves and instead use accounts of ourselves delivered in the third person to deliver us back to the path on which we…were…or are…or planned on being on…or…

Hell Yes, I Comeback

On the June 8, 2017 edition of the 68Comeback Special, we welcomed some very special company who taught us some things about people who don’t get microphones, we nodded in a Chomiak direction, and we sought the opportunity to reach a reasonable compromise with any and all future dates.

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.

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