HEY!  Bob Dylan has a birthday this weekend!  How are you gonna celebrate it?  If you're a show on KMSU, you'll celebrate it by playing nothing but Bob this Friday! From six to nine a.m. we're going to play nothing but The Bard From the North Country, so be sure to send us your request.  We're pretty well stocked for the day, so go ahead and stump us!  Somebody always does, despite my decades long quest to try and get everything I can possibly get from the man.

KMSU will be playing him throughout the day, too, so continue listening until you can't stand it anymore.  Is there such a thing as too much Dylan on the radio?  I'm pretty sure... yeah, no.  No there isn't.

What's that you say?  A full day of Bob Dylan on the radio isn't enough for you?  How about OVER FOUR HOURS OF THE LAST WALTZ THAT YOU PROBABLY HAVE NEVER SEEN, LET ALONE HEARD?!!!  Sorry about the yelling.  I have the volume cranked as I watch it.  Dangerous Minds posted this a few days ago, and somehow it's still available to watch.  I don't know how long it will be, though.

This is the ENTIRE Last Waltz concert, including songs not available anywhere else.  Even better, it's the original soundboard recordings, so no overdubs here.  It's stunning.  We were listening to some of it at the station the other day, and it knocked us out.  You even get the full Dylan set (skip to the end of part three).  The video is solid, though it is from a single camera at the back of the room.  Bill Graham recorded all the shows that he produced, so this is most likely from the Winterland archives.  

These guys really knew how to throw a farewell bash.

NOT ENOUGH?  WHY DO YOU GUYS HATE IDLE TIME SO MUCH?  How about some kick ass footage from the 1966 tour of England?  You know, the one where people were booing off the stage for going electric?  The guy's on fire in this footage, and most likely very high.  I'm talking to you, John Lennon footage!
