DYLAN COVERS

Bob_Dylan_-_The_Times_They_are_a-Changin-300x300When I was doing my radio show at KRCB Santa Rosa Ca. the station’s program director decided that we’d do a tribute to Dylan’s 50th. All the DJ’s would do a 2 hour program devoted to Bob, 12 straight hours on the Saturday, 8am ’til 8 pm plus me from midnight ’til 2am. My friend Roland Jacopetti and I decided to do a preview a couple of days before, we jointly put together a 3 hour program of Dylan covers. I engineered it, Roland hosted it.

I came across this tape of the final hour a couple of nights ago, I thought you might enjoy it.

  2. ONE measly comment?!? WTF!?!

    Hi GF.
    This is a great thread for me, as I spent many years balancing my admiration for Dylan songs, against my antipathy for [to?] his voice.
    Sadly, life is denying me any blogging time at all at the moment.
    I promise to come back to this when I can, as I suspect I like plenty of Dylan covers you’ll hate, but I hope to find a couple of new-to-yous that you won’t!
    Cheers.

  3. I’m looking forward to a listen to this. Only had time to play the Neil Young so far. I’ve always loved Elvis P’s take on Tomorrow is a Long Time.

  4. Love Pete Seeger’s version of “Hard Rain” – I’m like DsD, I admire Dylan’s songs but I’m not keen on his voice.

    • Ali: Thanks for that, loved it, I’d never heard it before. Anyone else got a favorite surprise?
      And thanks for all the comments, glad you liked it.
