Bob Dylan’s radio show comes to the Beeb

Bob Dylan‘s previously reported weekly US radio show has been picked up by the BBC to be broadcast by digital station 6Music. The Theme Time Radio Hour will go out on Fridays at 9pm from 12 January. The show will be marketed via a series of previews during Christmas week, with Radio 2 airing six recent editions of the programme.

Dylan began the show, which is hosted by XM Satellite Radio, back in May. The musician plays an eclectic mix of music as well as broadcasting interviews and discussions. Dylan says of his venture: “A lot of my own songs have been played on the radio, but this is the first time I’ve ever been on the other side of the mic”.
