WMWV’s Morning Show Host Roy Prescott had the chance to interview author Robert Dean Lurie about his new biography “Begin The Begin; R.E.M.’s Early Years”. It is a fantastic read about the Athens, GA band’s formative years. Written by Lurie who lived in Athens, it’s the first book published since R.E.M. called it a career in 2011. The book, available at White Birch Books in North Conway, is a must read for R.E.M. fans.
