In honour of the former Robert Zimmerman’s upcoming 80th birthday, Roy has put together a ‘Roots of Bob Dylan’ episode. You won’t hear any Bob, though. Instead, you’ll hear original versions of songs that inspired Mr. Dylan – songs that Bob has covered or has used as templates for his own numbers.
Roy spins tracks from Nat Shilkret with Willard Robison, Jimmie Rodgers, Little Jr. Parker & His Blue Flames, Paul Clayton, Billy Lee Riley & His Little Green Men, the Davis Sisters, Billie Holiday, Bobby Vee, and more.
That’s Sunday, May 23 at 1 PM Mountain Time, for The Roots of Bob Dylan on Rooooy’s Record Room, the show that revolves and reveals.
