Bob Dylan. The Bard of Hibbing. Modern music wouldn’t be the same without him. His influence permeates everything that’s come in his path. No other single artist has left such a profound mark on the art of songwriting.
To honor that greatness, we’re going to spend the week of October 17-24 celebrating all things Bob. We’ll countdown The Bob Dylan 100; we’ll play plenty of his deep tracks; and we’ll also survey the rich catalog of Dylan covers by artists from around the world.
That’s where you come in! We also want to spin Dylan covers from our own backyard, the Local 518!
We’re asking local artists to dig out their tapes and files and send us a Dylan cover. What? You haven’t done one yet? Well, get to it! Simple well-done, home recordings may work; cool studio tracks are even better. Grab a classic, knock it out and send it to us by 10/12 for full consideration.
We’ll play you playing Bob!
WAV is the best file format for WEXT, but we can also accept AIF, or high quality MP3′s. Upload files to your DropBox and send a link, or use HighTail, Sendspace, Google Drive, or some other online storage and send us a link. If you have any questions, please reach out using our contact form.
Charlie Mars is on the verge of releasing his next album, “The Money.” On November 8th, he’s coming back to town to play at The Linda in Albany.
He knows how much we love his music, and so one of his first calls was to us to see if maybe we’d want to gather a few friends to hang out for a bunch of songs one afternoon in September. Our answer: HECK YEAH!
Who’s with us? Details and the form to register after the break.
Our pals Ian, Jared and Ben – also known at The Howlin Brothers, are headed our way. As they pass through town, they are going to stop by and play a rippin’ set of songs LIVE ON THE RADIO. And in order to make this a truly memorable situation for both them, and the radio listeners, we thought let’s get a bunch of listeners together for this event.
So, we’d love you to join us as a VIP listener at the station for the Howlin Brothers’ Live Radio Hour on Monday, September 29th. Register to be a VIP and see the details for the event after the break.
