This is Radio Bob
I'm Walking, one of the Fats Domino tracks featured in Wednesday was taken from a terrific Uncut Compilation Radio Bob -Another 17 brilliant tracks taken from Dylan's Theme Time Radio Hour.Volume 2
Note to self - must track down Volume 1
Theme Time Radio Hour was a satellite radio show hosted by Bob Dylan which ran from May 2006 to April 2009.An eclectic mix of songs on a weekly theme featured showing that Bob has excellent taste. It also showed his fine sense of humour and a nice line in self deprecation .
While the CD was down from the shelves I took the opportunity to give it a listen and what a belter it is.
I could have chosen any of the 17 songs. Obviously Fats has featured before as have the featured songs by George Jones and Johnny Burnette.
However, as I'm sure you will all agree these three are not too shabby.
Faron Young - Live Fast, Love Hard, Die Young
LaVern Baker - Soul On Fire
Webb Pierce - Drifting Texas Sand
