Talkin’ Dylan

Posted By on June 19, 2007

Imagine my surprise to get a request to talk about Dylan over National Public Radio. It happened in early May when Cary Burkett, a producer at WITF 89.5 FM, the NPR affiliate in Harrisburg, Pa., contacted me.Seems Cary had come across my online review of Dylan’s “Modern Times” and wanted to interview me about Dylan’s latest attack of popularity. I was only too happy to oblige, as long as Cary mentioned my book, “Cleveland Rock & Roll Memories,” and named this blog.

I didn’t hear from him for weeks. I thought I’d been too pushy. I didn’t know what to do, because e-mail protocol is prickly.

Finally, Cary e-mailed me to discuss the telephone interview. He said he’d taken early vacation and apologized for not having gotten back to me. We did the interview. Here’s the clip:
