Musician Bob Dylan turns 70 years old on Tuesday, and Marfa Public Radio is honoring him with a two-hour original tribute, from 8 to 10 PM.
As a songwriter, Dylan has influenced millions, and as an activist he inspired a generation. Whether you’re a fan or not, Dylan’s music has been a part of American culture for the past 45 years.
A group of local Dylan fans are hosting a live two-hour program, which KRTS is broadcasting Tuesday night, from 8 to 10 PM.
They will play early Dylan, late Dylan…and some Dylan that might surprise you. If you have a Dylan request, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before our local tribute, from 7 to 8 PM, we’ll also play a special edition of Sound Opinions: “Like A Rolling Stone – The Music of Bob Dylan.” The Sound Opinions hosts are joined by Dylan scholar Clinton Heylin and legendary musician and Dylan collaborator Al Kooper to talk about his development from a Greenwich Village folkie to a plugged in rocker.
