Hi!

It's been a while since I posted on here, but I wanted to let you know that from this Sunday onwards, I'll be hosting a weekly radio show about Bob Dylan, his music & anything else.
Definitely Dylan airs Sundays at 4pm GMT on Resonance 104.4FM, a London radio station, but you can also listen online, as well as on mixcloud afterwards.

If you're interested in tuning in and joining the discussion, check out the Facebook page or follow @DefDylan on Twitter. I'd love for more Dylan fans to get involved and send suggestions etc.

Thanks a lot for reading, and I hope you'll tune in sometime!

Good luck with this, im looking forward to listening to it.

As much as i enjoy pod dylan it does have some problems like not being able to fast-forward, anytime i pause it it goes back to the start and it always cuts out before end as well.

Ha, I don't think my radio voice is quite as good as Dylan's, unfortunately..

I'll be posting links where you can listen back on mixcloud afterwards.. I understand it's tricky with different time zones.

Today's show will be all about beginnings, birth, and rebirth!

I live in London, Laura, but missed this earlier. Listening now, sounds great.

Really enjoyed the show, Laura. Impressed that you played "It's Alright, Ma" early in your first episode. That's not an easily-digestible track for casual fans, but it's one of my personal favorites. I also liked how, for certain songs, you played live performances or studio outtakes from The Bootleg Series instead of the regular album versions. You're clearly delving deep into Bob's music.

Looking forward to the next show!

Thanks The Reasoner, I'm glad you enjoyed it! It was actually quite funny, the engineer in the studio with me that day isn't a big Dylan fan, so after every verse of It's Alright Ma, he looked at me, expecting the song to be over, ready to pull down the faders, and I had to tell him "nah, we've got four minutes left!"... it's a long song.

I feel like what's the use in having a show dedicated to Dylan if you can't dig a little deeper. It's just a shame that I'm only allowed to play officially released material, so no bootlegs :(

This Sunday's episode I'm especially looking forward to actually, it'll be all about Dylan's duets! Can't wait!

If you're interested in catching up on this week's episode on Dylan's duets, you can listen back here:

By the way, I've also started a Spotify Playlist with most of the songs from the radio show (some of the songs I play aren't on Spotify)..
Here's the link: https://open.spotify.com/user/ht54dzrn4 ... mURFfDrgKA

I know you all probably know and have most of these songs already anyway, but it might still make for a fun playlist to listen to on shuffle. I'll be updating it after every episode, so follow the playlist for more songs!

(Spotify is being a giant pain, so currently the playlist doesn't show up when you search for Definitely Dylan, so you have to access it via the link)

Excellent show!
Nice to see/hear some not-so-obvious duets included.

Appreciate your off-the-cuff insights amidst well researched commentary.

Looking forward to the next!

Sounds great, look forward to checking it out! Any chance you're going to release it as a podcast on iTunes/Stitcher? A little easier to listen on the go than Mixcloud.

Thank you Still Go Barefoot, I'm so glad you've enjoyed the selection, I had such a great time putting that duet episode together!

the3penguins, I'm still looking into another way of making the show available. Unfortunately it looks as if it's a licensing issue. In order to play music on a podcast, you need a special license, whereas the radio station is obviously already licensed.
I know it's a bit inconvenient to always listen on mixcloud, and I'm still doing my research... I'll keep you guys posted. :)

In the meantime, here's yesterday's episode, I call it Dylan's Outtakes Vol. I:

I figured out how to sneek in and listen before the link comes out.
Another good one although I still can’t get your last name, 3 shows in!

You can grab the mixcloud version as an mp3 by pasting the link here: http://www.mixcloud-downloader.com

Loving the show, Laura. I have a lot of ideas for different Dylan-related topics you could cover, so I'm curious what you'll do next.

No facebook here, but I did find the spelling in the comments section of the last resonance post: Tenschert
Meanwhile, looking forward to what today's show brings, if there is one.
Cheers!
