Album Hour

Hey Listeners,

Get ready for lots of covers tonight, but hopefully in a way that's a little different.  We'll hear all of Blonde on Blonde tonight - in order - done by other artists - Others on Blonde.  We'll mix it up and spotlight a couple of other classic records along the way - Willis Alan Ramsey's first (and only record) and Let It Be.  We'll close the show with some other killer Dylan covers.  Turn it up!
