An incredible, wide ranging but somehow deftly cohesive blend of songs with heart and soul – whether it's classifably soul music, or classic country, crackling blues, boogie woogie, primitive rock & roll, jumpin' r&b or wild-eyed modern rock – all songs that were chosen by Bob Dylan for his increasingly awe-inspiring radio show! Theme Time Radio Hour features 50 songs on 2CDs, spanning 75 years of classic tunes, classic characters and rare oddball nuggets – and if Bob Dylan's legend isn't already bursting at the seams, you may as well add the title of dapper old gentleman with impeccable taste to his crown! He spins the rolling 1930s blues of Leroy Carr
, the charming cornpone of Grandpa Jones, rollicking bluesy soul from Otis Rush, cowboy harmonies from Sons Of The Pioneers, female girl group soul from the Donays, buzzing Chess sounds from Bo Diddley, pre-punk from the Modern Lovers, and so much more – that's just a taste! Includes "Turn Your Radio On" by Grandpa Jones, "Gun Fever" from The Valentines, "He Will Break Your Heart" by Jerry
Butler, "Laughin & Jokin" by Ernie Chafin, "Mother Earth" by Memphis Slim, "Walk A Mile In My Shoes" by Joe South, "Those DJ Shows" by Patrice Holloway, ""Black Coffee" by Bobby Darin, "Mona" by Bo Diddley and tons more!
