Stranger Songs
Tuesday May 24th, 2022 with Mike Regenstreif
More Songs of Bob Dylan

A year ago, in the week surrounding Bob Dylan’s 80th birthday, I presented three shows of Dylan songs on CKCU: two editions of Stranger Songs and one of the Saturday Morning Show. Given his prolific output over the past 60 years, I only scratched the surface of Dylan’s great songs. So, our theme on this edition of Stranger Songs – which falls on Dylan’s birthday – is More Songs of Bob Dylan – all of them interpretations by other artists. Click on LISTEN NOW to hear this show.
