The 32nd broadcast of the Bob Dylan Birthday Marathon
Saturday 28th May
8pm till 4am “Fallen Angels on the Cutting Edge”
On 19th March 1962 Columbia Records released the first album of a “bright new face in folk music” – Bob Dylan. 54 years later and the hillbilly kid from Minnesota is a legend around the world, his shelves groaning with awards and his work discussed in the halls of academe.
For the last 31 years 2SER’s Bob Dylan Birthday Marathon has been celebrating the “Picasso of Rock”’s birthday with news, reviews, interviews, the Dylan Quiz – and all the Bobsongs that fit. We will be featuring Bob’s latest Bootleg Series release The Cutting Edge: unreleased songs, outtakes and alternate versions from 1965 to 1966 – everything he committed to tape in this extraordinarily prolific 15 months when he recorded Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde On Blonde.
A half century later Rolling Stone includes all three albums in the top forty of the”200 greatest albums of all time”. We also have Fallen Angels, Bob’s second outing of great American Songbook classics in which he croons the likes of That Old Black Magic, It Had To Be You, On A Little Street In Singapore and All The Way.
As ever there will be a smorgasbord of live versions, soundtrack contributions, rare tracks and snippets from his years as the sagacious DJ of early to mid 20th century popular music.
So for 8 hours and over 5 decades of Bobcat Heaven tune into 2SER and throw a party to celebrate the birthday of His Bobness.
Saturday 28th May 8pm to 4am.
