"Songs and music have always inspired me."

===============~Bob Dylan

May 3, 2006, marked the premiere of Bob Dylan's DJ career, hosting a weekly radio program, Theme Time Radio Hour, for XM Satellite Radio, with song selections revolving around a chosen theme. Dylan played classic and obscure records from the 1930s to the present day. The show was praised by fans and critics as "great radio," as Dylan told stories and made eclectic references with his sardonic humor, while achieving a thematic beauty with his musical choices. The show ran ran from May 3, 2006 -April 15, 2009.
These broadcasts are now available, thanks to CROZ-FM. All 100 shows (in 160-kbps mp3 format) can be found at their archive site.
Just click on the Click on the arrow icon to download each show. icon to download each show as a single zip file. These are not podcasts - each song is a separate mp3 file with title and performer details completed in the ID tags. If you put the shows on your iPod, they will appear as Bob Dylan albums. This is a really great offering that will take you a long time to download, but I think you will find it worthwhile. A great companion for long road trips.
