A Sydney institution since it first went to air in 1985, the annual 2SER Bob Dylan Birthday Marathon returns on the 28th of May to celebrate the 81st birthday of the Picasso Of Rock.
We will be talking to Rockwiz legend Brian Nankervis who is a huge fan of Bob’s and has stories to tell. We will be featuring the 5CD set Springtime In New York: Bootleg Series Vol 16 which is full of goodies in the form of alternate versions, outtakes, rehearsals from the 1980 to 1985 period.
For the last 38 years 2SER’s Bob Dylan Birthday Marathon has been celebrating the Nobel and Pulitzer-prize winning artist’s birthday with news, reviews, interviews, the Dylan Quiz – and all the Bobsongs that fit and of course the requests section roars into the early hours.
As ever there will be a profusion of live versions, soundtrack contributions, rare tracks. So for 8 hours and over 6 decades of Bobcat Heaven tune into 2SER and throw a party to celebrate the 81st birthday of His Bobness. Saturday 28th May 8pm to 4am.
