R.E.M. R.I.P.


R.E.M. is no more!  They announced on their website that it is time to call it quits.  While it has probably been a decade since I've seriously followed their career, they have been part of the soundtrack of my life, and their music triggers a lot of memories.

Thursday on the show we're gonna go full on R.E.M., so don't be bashful if you have any songs you wanna hear.  They meant a lot to a lot of people, and that includes the gang at Shuffle Function.  Thirty years is impressive for any relationship, let alone a creative life in the spotlight.  Nice work, fellas.

Mike and Peter look like they're having fits on stage, they were so jerky and jumpy.
