I've dipped in out of TTRH over the years but recently started all over again and although i expect the answer to be no I was just wondering if one of his songs ever slipped in there?

No, he did not.
But he did obliquely reference a couple of them, and even sang "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" on the Baseball show.

I remember thath he played a couple of song by others which he has also played live, but I can't name any by heart right now.

Yeah, I think I remember that, too.
I actually have a goal to go through each episode and note the subtle, sometimes sly references he makes to his own music.

For instance, I can't remember the name the song, but on one of the shows Bob played an old folk standard with the exact line: "I sleep in the kitchen with my feet in the hall" as if to say, Yep, I lifted my line from Workingman's Blues #2 directly from this old song.

Aha, you're right, found a couple -

Lonnie Donegan's Cumberland Gap -
I got a girl six feet tall
Sleeps in the kitchen with her feet in the hall


Cisco Houston's version of 'Talking Blues' -
I got a gal she's six feet tall
And sleeps in the kitchen with her feet in the hall

Someone need to do a theme time for Dylan songs. Trains, rain, roads, dreams, and so on. That would be interesting.

Can't think of a more reasonable candidate -
What do you say, Mr. Stetson?

Haha. It would be a worthy undertaking. Death, mother, god, stars. How cool would that be?

YES!

I mean, do it - it's your idea!
I've got just a shade under two years before retirement,
and if you haven't done it by then, I may have a go.

Go for it summerteeth. Morning, wind, rivers, paintings, summer. It’s endless. Maybe theme time was the template for how to look at the work.

OK, found one.
In episode 19 (The Bible), he played Samson and Delilah by Reverend Gary Davis.
He had played it live before (2004-06-11).

I'm almost sure that he played Blowin' (or at least some notes from it) on the flute on one episode.

Yes, you're right.
I looked it up and listened to it again. On episode 53 "Days of the Week,"
Bob played BITW on the recorder (well, who knows if was really Bob playing it).
