R.E.M. made the world listen. Formed in 1980, the quartet out of Athens, Georgia exploded the old idea of what pop music is all about. The 25th anniversary edition of the band’s iconic “Out of Time” album is set to be released in November. A 2014 MTV documentary explores the band’s Georgia roots. We listen back to our conversation with the filmmakers of the documentary and we also talk with Jordan Stepp, the writer of the Athens Music Junkie blog.
