|Bob Dylan – the formative grumblings and stirrings of the 60′s Song and Dance Man|
Something special tonight - one of the many radio programs Bob Dylan performed on early in his career.
In the 1950′s and early 1960′s, when FM radio was almost the sole domain of the “audiophile” and the independent station, many programs were devoted to live music - whether it was Jazz or Folk or Classical.
And it was a major factor in getting new artists established to an audience not particularly interested in the mainstream, but interested in what was new.
This session, from July 19, 1961 features Bob Dylan (and a guest appearance from Danny Kalb), is from the program Saturday Of Folk Music from, I think, WNCN.
Here’s what’s on the player:
