8:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Bob Dylan NEW!
Without a doubt, Bob Dylan is one of the most significant songwriters in the history of popular music. His songs have been recorded and performed by literally hundreds of artists, including Chrissie Hynde, Linda Ronstadt, The Byrds, The Grateful Dead, Joan Baez, Maria Muldaur, The Band and many more. He has been awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for his compositions. We have over two hours of music here, and we’ve left so much out that we could have made an EP out of this effort. But we restrained ourselves. Don’t miss this one.
Before, in between, and after we’ve got our wide Open Stream of rock, rock n’ roll, country, folk, reggae, soul and da blues. We’re here 24/7 (not just when we have programming) and we’re totally free of charge and commercial advertising. What’s not to love?
