It's been 25 year since the release of R.E.M.'s "Out of Time.". In November, a deluxe edition of breakthrough album hit shelves — making it a perfect time to dig out this episode from the Dad Rock archives.

Patrick Foster and Jim Lenahan look back at the band's second period, when Berry, Buck, Mills, Stipe moved up to a major label.

This episode was a follow-up to Dad Rock Ep. 7, which focused on R.E.M.'s I.R.S. years. It features fan and GFOP (good friend of the pod) Justin Gay.
