Patt Smith presents Bob Dylan’s life story

And it's free to download

A free series of official Bob Dylan podcasts presented by Patti Smith have been made available online.

Ten short casts have already been posted telling the story of Dylan‘s career chronologically and it is anticipated that the series will eventually run to about 20 episodes, forming a two-hour documentary.

The tenth episode, which was posted this week, took the story up to the late 1970s and the beginning of the ‘born again’ period.

With Smith acting as the presenter, each includes Dylan recordings and historic interview snippets with the man himself plus contributions from musicians such as Roger McGuinn and Garth Hudson and commentators including the author Greil Marcus.

All are legally downloadable as MP3 files from Blogs.legacyrecordings.com.
