Dylan Sunday - Theme Time Radio Hour #9
Bob Dylan, Theme Time Radio Hour #9 (Divorces)
A little late with this one, but I like Dylan Sunday and so just pretend, okay? Here's the next installment of Bob Dylan's radio show, Theme Time Radio Hour. We'll probably take a little break from these shows, unless there is a great outpouring of comments for this to continue. I guess I'll leave up to you, my dear readers. Speak or I will speak for you.
Anyway, here's a sad topic to bring up, as there's nothing good to say about this one. As a recently divorced person, I can attest to how awful this is. It seems like a common thing today, yet it's such a devastating one, especially for the kids. Of course, as George Constanza said, "I'm the result of my parents having stayed together, so you never really know."
This episode is not one of my favorites. While it's cool to hear the old country tunes, this one is just overloaded with them. It's interesting how half of the songs are railing against modern society and divorce, the other half are discussing their own divorces. My favorite moment lasts about 7 seconds. It's when Jenny Lewis of Rilo Kiley fame gives a show ID; I love her, she even sounds cute. Anyway, enjoy and weigh in on the future of these posts.
