Jokerman — The Funny Side of Bob Dylan

March 11, 2019

On Sunday March 3rd, I was pleased to join Lisa Finnie as Guest Host on her radio show, The Dylan Hour.

Lisa & Mike

My theme for the show was Jokerman, and I played some examples of Bob’s humorous material.

If you missed it, here it is. I’ve broken it into 3 parts to help minimize the file size.

At some point, I will expand my commentary on the songs – you have to be brief on a one-hour show, and anyone who knows me knows that I can talk at length about Dylan.

I hope you enjoy it!
