Happy Birthday ‘Murica!  We’re celebrating your Independence by playing your greatest American songwriter in history, all day long!  Enjoy!

Canada Love You!

Thanks to all for partaking of our Canada Day celebrations!  Now… BACK TO BOB!

HAPPY CANADA DAY!

HAPPYCANADADAY

Happy 151th Birthday, Canada!  Your patriotic Canadian Walrus has hijacked the station to share music by Canadian artists all day long.  I hope you’ll indulge this annual tradition and hopefully hear someone you’ll want to learn more about.  And by “someone” I mean The Tragically Hip, among others 🙂

Please note that today’s Theme Time and the evening live concert will be set aside for a couple of great Canadian shows that should give you a few laughs.

Thank you for joining us in celebrating DylanRadio.com’s Home & Native Land!

Something is coming…

Did you know that DylanRadio.com is based in Nova Scotia, Canada?

Did you know that your DJ is quite patriotic?

Did you know that Canada celebrates its birthday on July 1st?

If you answered “yes” to all three, then you already know what’s coming this Sunday.  😉

Happy 77th Bob!

Thanks for everything, Bob!  We love you!

We Have Been Released!

The Wilburys have been appeased!  Thanks to everyone for taking part in our Wilbury Weekend.  I’m happy to report the wandering band of ne’er-do-well minstrels have agreed to return the station back to it’s original format, but they warn that future takeovers are not only possible, but probable. 😀

WHEN WILBURYS ATTACK!

ACK!  The Wilbury’s have hijacked DylanRadio.com!  I received a ransom letter where they demand that, if we ever want to see our beloved radio station again, we need to request & dedicate songs by the notorious gang of brothers: Nelson, Spike, Otis, Clayton, Charlie T Jr, Muddy, Lefty, Lucky & Boo!  Let us appease these ruffians lest they take over the rest of the internet!

They further demand that we broadcast their propaganda, The Traveling Wilburys Revisited, throughout the weekend at the times below:

  • 3pm Friday (2pm Eastern, 1pm Central, 11am Pacific, 7pm London, 6am Sydney)
  • 9pm Saturday (8pm Eastern, 7pm Central, 5pm Pacific, 1am London, 12pm Sydney)
  • 8am Sunday (7am Eastern, 6am Central, 4am Pacific, 12pm London, 11pm Sydney)

Just do what they say, everybody, and I’m sure they’ll release us someday!

Meandering Minstrel Madness

Don’t tell anybody, but I have it on good authority that a mob of maniacal meandering minstrels are masterminding a plot to take over the airwaves this coming weekend.  I’ve already contacted INTERPOL and CSIS in an attempt to thwart this assault, but they may not be up to the task.  Those five brothers are crafty geniuses.  STAY VIGILANT!

Thanks for your support!

February and our bandwidth upgrade are all wrapped up!  You have no idea how much it means to me that you guys chip in the gas money for this musical road trip we’re all on.  Without you, I’m just some dude behind the wheel of a broken-down jalopy.  Moreover, I hope donators also appreciate how much their support means to all the listeners who can’t afford to assist in that way.  Special thanks to the folks who have made a monthly commitment to keeping us going!  I’d love to post everyone’s names to honour them publicly, but I also respect your privacy.  Can’t keep your names from my wife, though.  She hears about you all the time.  😉

Finally, a special thank-you to everyone who supports us in other ways, whether it’s through checking out sponsors, spreading the word about the station, or even just taking the time to interact with us on Twitter or Facebook.  A car runs on more than just gas, and without you helping out in those ways, I’d still be stranded in an old, dead beater.  Thank you to each and every one of you!

Upgrade Time!

I’ve update the running total for the bills, and it’s a little higher this month  due to a bandwidth upgrade to facilitate some live shows starting next month, so anything you can do to lend a hand would be IMMENSELY appreciated.  Thankfully the set-up costs are one-time, so it won’t be a monthly burden.  Most importantly, only donate what you won’t miss… YOUR bills are far more important than some website on the net.

In gratitude for this extra “emergency” thing, the little thank-you gift to Patreon donators will be extended to everyone who donates towards this current bill, regardless of amount. I can’t possibly thank you enough for everything you folks do to keep the site running, and I hope you’ll find the live shows entertaining.

With this better connection, I’ll also be looking to facilitate some other Dylan-related stuff (such as Google hangouts), so if talking about Bob on-air is something you’d be interested in, please leave a comment so I can contact you when that time comes.

As always, no matter how you’re able help out (monetary, visiting sponsors, or just spreading the word), this station only exists because of YOU, and you have been AMAZING for keeping this train rolling for 10 years now. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
