Today fm available in RealAudio are running a poll to find the most popular Bob song. Ian Dempsey's Breakfast Show (7am GMT to 10am GMT) have Bob Dylan as a regular contributor, writing folk songs on request for people who are getting married, emigrating, etc. you get the picture. Anyways "Bob" will be joining Dempsey on the morning of his birthday to announce the results of the poll. (by the way the guy who 'does' Bob is hilarious and his songs are very very funny. One that springs to mind is "the night they took Coronation Street away" a protest song against the removal of a soap opera from RTE TV.)
Anyway, You vote for your best song at and the winner is announced between 7 and 10am by Bob himself on Thursday. I would like, for a change to see some real votes going in, and not the usual 'Blowin in the wind' 'Times they are a-changin' scenario.
You get the picture. Derek Keogh

I was wondering if you could put a note on your site to see if any Chicago area Bobheads would like to help organize some sort of Bobfest next Thursday or Friday for the Big 6-0 at Alive One.  The address is 2683 N. Halsted.  It is a really cool Dylan friendly bar in Lincoln Park.  I spoke with someone there today and they don't have anything formal planned but would be more than willing to host and help organize such an event.  I've been to a few parties there where they'll rent out part of the bar for something like $20 a person all you can drink for 3 or 4 hours.  Thanks and keep up the good work with the Website!!!
