This week Eli and guest host Steve Strohmeier play a bunch of old recordings of songs Bob Dylan has been strongly inspired by over his long career. These are songs that Dylan has heard and then used the melody, the lyrics or parts of both to create his own songs. In this way he has taken the older forms of music that he was exposed to and changed the feeling to suit himself and his contemporary audience. In this show we take a direct look at how Bob Dylan takes various songs and forms of music and “Bob-Dylanifies” them.
