DYLAN: LIKE A ROLLING STONE

From Joyride Media | Part of the DYLAN series | 59:00

Patti Smith hosts this hour of Bob Dylan music and conversation covering 1965-1974

Bddylancover_small With the mantle of folk protest singer off his shoulders, Bob Dylan launched into a flurry of creativity in the mid-1960's. His sound exploded with electric instruments and a blend of folk, rock, blues, and gospel influences. By the late 60's, Dylan was singing country music like he had grown up in Nashville. His lyrics still commented on the world, but through a wider lens that mixed personal reflection with mystical and surreal images. In this hour, we'll hear how Dylan found his own unique voice, and how that changed rock and roll for a long time to come. Interviews: Sean Wilentz, George Wein, Roger McGuinn, Anthony DeCurtis, Greil Marcus, John Hiatt, John Cohen, Ray Benson, Josh Ritter, Bill Flanagan, Garth Hudson

The Emergence of Bob Dylan (1 or 2 hour special)

From Paul Ingles | 01:57:55

THE EMERGENCE OF BOB DYLAN traces the incomparable artist's rise to the world stage. First hour can stand alone.

61cropped2_small Scores of great stations across the U.S. have already aired THE EMERGENCE OF BOB DYLAN and the good reviews are rolling in. "Well told, well crafted, well produced. The story telling is exquisite..." "No doubt the best documentary on Dylan, certainly of his early years..." "Insightful interviews, interesting choice of songs and a good narrative thread runs through both hours..." "What a fine tribute to one of the best singer-songwriters... I thought the song choice was exceptional..." "Being too young to have been around when Bob Dylan changed the world, I've always known that his contribution was great, but never really understood it in context. Your radio program really helped to put it into perspective" This two hour special from Paul Ingles ("The Beatles In America - 1964") and Public Radio International is still available for air. Two separate 59 minute segments, newscast compatible, one 30 second break in each. BROADCAST RIGHTS: Any Public Radio station may now carry this program. The program must be carried in its entirety or as just the first hour. Otherwise, no excerpting is permitted. PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Hosted and produced by Paul Ingles, THE EMERGENCE OF BOB DYLAN traces the incomparable artist's rise to the world stage. Ingles examines the confluence of Dylan's career and that remarkable time in the American pop music landscape. In the first hour, he takes listeners on an exclusive tour of the Experience Music Project's Dylan retrospective with curator Jason Emmons and EMP Artistic Director Bob Santelli. Both hours feature several artists who crossed paths with Dylan early on. Listeners hear from Robbie Robertson of The Band, John Cohen and Mike Seeger of the New Lost City Ramblers, folk music expert Izzy Young, and others from Dylan's nascent years. Both hours contain a healthy mix of Dylan's music from this period, including both well-known and lesser-known tracks.
