Bob Dylan at 80, pt.2: New Covers and More


ICYMI Bob Dylan turned 80 on May 24.

In anticipation of Dylan‘s 80th birthday, 14 esteemed artists – including Richard Thompson, The Flaming Lips, and Cowboy Junkies – recorded brand new versions of classic Dylan songs exclusively for Uncut Magazine. We'll listen to some of them along with other Dylanalia from host Devon Strolovitch's back pages this Wednesday, May 26 at 9 pm.

Devon Strolovitch studied medieval Judeo-Portuguese manuscripts and earned a PhD in Linguistics from Cornell University before coming to KALW. He is the Senior Producer of Philosophy Talk, and since 2007 has hosted Fog City Blues, the weekly digest of Blues in the Bay Area and beyond.
