About This Show
Show Info: Bob Dylan podcast episodes produced by Joyride Media look back on the most influential moments of Dylan's long career, leading up to brand new COMPLETE BASEMENT TAPES features in late Oct 2014. Segments are hosted by Patti Smith (1-19) and WFUV New York personality Rita Houston (20-27). His friends, early influences and collaborators discuss their close relationships with Dylan, the stories behind his greatest songs and other memorable moments of his career. Journalists and biographers add critical insights and provide historical contexts. A few of today’s singer-songwriters also detail how Dylan’s art influenced their own lives and careers. We also hear comments from Dylan, himself, from interviews recorded since 1961. COMPLETE BASEMENT TAPES - Four brand-new episodes premiere late October 2014 with the full stories behind Dylan and The Band's mythic 1967 Woodstock, NY recordings.
