BMcG on the BBC!
BBC, Radio 4 in Manchester, England has a popular radio series called Soul Music that takes an in-depth look at the effect a particular piece of music has had on people. Bill was asked to participate in an episode dedicated to Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone.” Other participants included Al Kooper (who played organ on the original recording), David Dye (from World Café radio) and critic Griel Marcus. Since the program wasn’t available in the United States, we’ve divided the 27 minute show into three 8-10 minute mp3s. Part 1 is where most of Bill’s interview appears (in his first appearance he’s the first to mention the song’s title at the top of the show).
Many thanks to Lindsay Leonard and Nicola Humphries from the BBC for all their help.
