Word In Your Ear’s Mark Ellen and David Hepworth are joined by two distinguished guests, Sid Griffin and Barb Jungr, both of whom are closer to Bob Dylan’s music than most.
Apart from his work with the Long Ryders and Coal Porters, Sid Griffin has had a life-long fascination with Dylan and has recently written Million Dollar Bash, a book about The Basement Tapes. Among Barb Jungr’s acclaimed recording output you’ll find no less than four Dylan albums of Dylan songs. The latest is Hard Rain. The Village Voice described her as “one of the best interpreters of Bob Dylan anywhere on this angst-ridden planet today”.
Barb and Sid talk about all aspects of Dylan’s life and career, from the serious, chin-stroking stuff, through the light, trivial side to the richly comic aspects that used to keep us so amused in the Word office.
