More Lost Time host Ric Dube talks about Boston rock legends the Cars and plays rare demos and a selection of cuts produced for other artists by frontman Ric Ocasek.

Ocasek's solo material is highlighted. Also, an exclusive interview with the Cars...is assembled from old audio clips.

Also, the identity of Hoboken's mysterious Mr. Bonus is identified. The program is sponsored by Wellington's, who seem to be promoting a sale of 8-track stereo tapes of some sort.
