Show 477 - Bob Dylan 2011

Air Date:

Wednesday, 25 May 2011

Hey baby, Little Steven here.

We are celebrating Bob Dylan’s birthday this weekend.

For you younger listeners, he was the cat that singlehandedly introduced cool lyrics into pop music.

Especially if you were too young to remember Chuck Berry - but Bobby took it to a new place.

Everybody making a personal statement about anything has him to thank.

Joining us will be Little Richard, Jason & the Scorchers, the Ramones, the Byrds, the Turtles, Jimi Hendrix, and Gary U.S. Bonds.

Brand new music from Spanking Charlene, Candy Golde, the Dahlmanns, the Biters, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, and Flogging Molly.

Come find out what Manfred Mann, Al Aronowitz, and Cher Bono have in common.

It’s Bob Dylan's birthday in the world’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio.

I’ll see you this weekend in the Underground Garage.

    Bob Dylan's songs and style were ground breaking then & still hold the listener today. To say his music is infinite
    is true. Just pick up a guitar,learn to play a Dylan Song and you will understand.
    Happy Birthday Bob

      It'd been a piece of cake for Jimi who otherwise broke so many barriers. who would've evaluated BD's material better than Jimi at the time .......!?

    Everyone have a big one for Bob this week! Bob transformed the experiences and possibilities of the songwriter in just the same way as Jimi re-imagined the sonic landscape for the guitar. Bob was,is and and will always be COOL in my book. Keep on Keeping on Bob.......

    The player you use is an absolute storage & CPU hog I keep having to stop & restart my browser, either Firefox or IE, to reclaim storage. Why doesn't someone at UG tech support pay attention & FIX THIS already!

      Hi, Undergroundperson --- I think you're right about the player being a "CPU hog" (I've got basically a brand-new, very capable HP laptop at decent speed, but doing anything else on it while using the player causes the stream to "hiccup"), but as for "storage space": How much RAM do you have? I have 2 Gig of RAM, which isn't all that big, but I have no problems in that area. If you are tech-savvy enough, maybe upgrading the RAM would help. P.S. Y'know, there *are* ways of *recording* off of here, if you "look around" a little bit on the internet, and the one I use is *free* :-) . . . if all else fails, try recording a show you like and playing it back that way.

        it is a CPU hog, but it is better than the NPR media player

      I figured out if I open the show in two windows, I can use the first window to scroll and read the set list once I minimize the second window. The second window I take the site all the way to the player. Very important: Once the first segment starts to play, PAUSE IT! You will see that after the load bar COMPLETELY loads, you can start the set and it will play uninterrupted. No hiccups. I haven't tried to do anything else while listening because I want to remember everything I hear...which is almost impossible, but, I get a lot more. NEXT: Once you get to the end of the 3rd segment (set) you should end (close) the program and start over again in window two at segment 4. This releases everything stored on your computer up to set 3. (By the time you get to set 3, you may wish to end it and start there if you find it loads too slow. This would mean you would have to end at the end of set 4 and start set 5 anew.)
      I have to minimize the player during play so I can scroll window 1, otherwise I lose the player and have to start it again.

    Thank you, as always, for the excellent Dylan's Birthday show (one of the top five best ever), and especially for that wonderful cover of "Absolutely, Sweet Marie" by Jason and the Scorchers. Great country-rock outfit; if only they hadn't Bumbled-up their career by making a beer commercial, which caused the critics to slag them . . .

    Wow! Staring at the load bar while listening to Etta James, I thought I saw the picture of Bob's head "nod" about halfway through....LOL! Like a hologram.... Little Steven helps me "connect the dots" like musical notes to my fingers, only with musicians to their histories...among other important, change-making people. When Hendrix finally bid us farewell musically here, I felt a tear unexpectedly form in the corner of my eye. "No one argued his worth..." Reminds me of when Bob was shut down at the school way back when. Imagine all of the people who were scarred by such a move and never persevered spite it as Bob had? All of that talent never to be heard from....
    Happy Birthday Bob! (My first time experiencing your show came a few years ago at the PawSox Stadium in Rhode Island. Thank you for a great evening! Hope to see you again!)
