Stranger Songs
Tuesday May 23rd, 2023 with Mike Regenstreif
The Traditional Folk & Blues Songs of Bob Dylan

The theme for this edition of Stranger Songs is "The Traditional Folk & Blues Songs of Bob Dylan." I’ve always felt that the best songwriters have a deep understanding and appreciation of traditional music and Bob Dylan is among those who set the standard for that. All of the songs on this program have been part of Dylan’s repertoire at some point over the past 60-plus years. Click on LISTEN NOW to hear this show.
