Bob Dylan's Basement Tapes tonight on Fog City Blues

Nov 12, 2014

In 1967, Bob Dylan and several members of what became The Band got together in upstate New York. For months, they played and played – and recorded as they went along. It took 8 years for some of the music to come out officially, but in that time, the legend of The Basement Tapes grew. Bootlegs were passed around, little hints of the bigger treasure that existed somewhere.

Bob Dylan's birthday

May 24, 2014

It's Bob Dylan's 73rd birthday today.  We'll celebrate.

We'll hear his songs sung in Women's voices, such as Joan Baez, Odetta, Nanci Griffith, and a singer from Bhutan named Lhamo Dukpa.

A Patchwork Quilt can be heard Saturdays at 5pm on 91.7 FM KALW in San Francisco and online at kalw.org.

The voice you’re hearing now is unmistakably that of Bob Dylan. No, he’s not part of the Bay Area local music scene, but a project called “Highway 61 Revisited” is.
