After several years of meandering musical exploration, R.E.M. has recently returned to the one true path with a rollicking, rocking new album, "Accelerate."
It's something of a return to form for the band, which grew from anchoring the Athens, Ga., indie-rock scene in the early '80s to become one of the most beloved bands of the '90s. Steve Busemeyer, Eric Gershon and Elizabeth Zuhl join me on our latest podcast to discuss the rise of R.E.M. and the joy of hearing the band reclaim its vitality.
