BONUS BLOG: “40 Years is a Looong Time“

April 14, 2023

Austin Kleon, an author, I admire, shared this today —

R.E.M.’s Murmur turned 40 years old. I was struck by this observation by guitarist Peter Buck: “If, on the way to the first day of recording Murmur, we had chanced upon a radio rebroadcast from exactly forty years previous, we would have heard speeches from Franklin Roosevelt, news about World War II, and the swinging sounds of Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller. Forty years is a looong time.”
