Click on the link here for Audio Player: Bob Dylan In Session – Saturday Of Folk Music – 1961
Something special tonight – one of the many radio programs Bob Dylan performed on early in his career. In the 1950’s and early 1960’s, when FM radio was almost the sole domain of the “audiophile” and the independent station, many programs were devoted to live music – whether it was Jazz or Folk or Classical. And it was a major factor in getting new artists established to an audience not particularly interested in the mainstream, but interested in what was new.
Here’s what’s on the player:
