XHM #84 - "It's crazy what you could have had" (2011 October 03)

7:31am - 9:03am

Calexico's score to the Irish indie film The Guard provides us with the rootsish theme for the show, along with a tribute to the recently dissolved R.E.M. (1980-2011). Do you like guitars? I guess there are some here in this MP3. Look closely...
