In the last few months, I've been regularly listening to Theme Time Radio Hour and I enjoy it very much. Bob is funny, most of the songs are unknown to me and I've discovered quite a few good ones for me. :)

The show had already finished when I started getting into Bob Dylan in 2013, so I don't know how much "hype" surrounded it while it was still on the air.
Nowadays, it seems like a hidden treasure. This sub-forum is pretty quiet. I wonder if everyone here has already listened to it and moved on... or if many people like listening to Bob's own music but not necessarily to the music he presents here.

I guess this isn't the most original poll question, but I have no idea whether the body of TTRH is considered "standard knowledge" that everyone has listened to at least once (like his albums) or more obscure like "Bob playing harmonica on a Roger McGuinn album".... :D

There are some shows in the third season I do not recall hearing/listening to. I have the first two seasons on flash drives and ravel with them so that I don't have to find radio stations wherever I am. Always have interesting music and a DJ I enjoy listening to. Its a good thing!

Over the years, I have been listening to every show. In fact, I guess I've gone through the whole catalogue two or three times. And I found something new to enjoy every time.

Probably about half scattered across all three seasons.

I listened to quite a few of them when they were broadcast. Then listened to most of them again, but not all. Need to find where I was up to and tune back in.

All of 'em, some several times and it is high time I revisited the ones I only gave a cursory listen to first time round, it's my favourite radio show bar none.

I'm currently going through every show and re-editing the cuts between recordings.
Sometimes the original uploader would separate an intro from the song that follows and this drives me crazy.

The reason I'm doing this is because I have uploaded all of Theme Time to my Apple Tunes, which consists of 24,000+ songs. When I put it on shuffle, occasionally a Theme Time track will pop up, and I like to have it at least make some sort of sense.

It's like Bob is my DJ for all of music, and just like an old time DJ, he only speaks after 5-10 songs or so.
For the record, I finished #71 today -- only 30 more.

I adore them and listen to some over and over again.

I am really enjoying the Bible episode. Have listened to it about 12 times now over the last few weeks.

Was aware of this series when it first came out. I listened to a few episodes then. Even more now. Probably have listened to about 2/3rds of the episodes.

And I bought the 3 CDs, with the songs, not the talking. My local dingy record shop has managed to survive and stay vibrant after all these years. He sells new and second hand stuff. I go in regularly and ask any 'Bob stuff?'. He will occasionally chuck over something new to me, that I've never heard of.

One day he showed me the 3 CDs of the Theme Time radio hour. He said 'Who'd buy these? Only songs, no talking?' I grabbed them.

So, now I can listen to a selection of the songs only, or listen to the show with Bob's really relaxing continuity. Perfect for me.
