Show 146: May Your Song Always Be Sung – Playlist and Archived Stream

listenup146

This week on Listen Up!, we play nothing but tunes written by a literate oddball outsider who somehow managed to cross over into the mainstream of the American psyche and become a permanent cultural identity. Hear the songs of Bob Dylan (whose birthday is Sunday May 24th) as sung and interpreted by others over the last 50 years.

Follow the Listen Up! Blog and/or “like” the show on Facebook.  Both serve as an addendum and a means to interact with the program.
