Mulligan Stew May 22nd 2021- Happy Birthday Bob Dylan!


Bob Dylan turns 80 years on Monday.

For the many who have lived their lives inside his songs, that, in itself, is a flag they carry high.

Bob Dylan defies description. Always has.

One way to get a clearer picture of the man and his many songs, thoughts, words, and music is to talk to the artists who have played with him or were his peers or followed Bob into a life of music.

This week’s guests on Mulligan Stew include:

David Bowie – on the judgement of Bob’s generation

Robbie Robertson – what did the Band learn from Bob and Bob from them.

Colin Linden – toured in Bob’s band.

The Avett Brothers – playing The Grammys with Bob and Chimes of Freedom LP

Barney Bentall/Steve Dawson – all about Blood on the Tracks

Susan Tedeschi- Derek Trucks – on their two heroes,  Leonard Cohen, and Bob Dylan.

Plus great tracks from Bob.  Thank You for a memorable 80 years, Bob!
