Playlist for 9-23-11: Here He Was, The Man That Time Forgot

John Paul Keith returned to Zero Hour this week to play a few songs and talk about The Man That Time Forgot, which is duking it out with one or two other albums for my favorite of the year. Brian from Big Rock Candy Mountainwrote eloquently about the great album’s many pleasures. I started with a high school theme in honor of my 20th (really?!!) high school reunion, which took place this weekend in Suffolk, Va., without me.
