For the first half of today's three-hour celebration of Bob Dylan's 80th birthday, Jeff is honoring Laurie Sonnenfeld's request, which she made in generously lending us Movin' On's timeslot, that we play some female covers of Bob. We're offering almost 90 minutes' worth! Featuring legendary artists like Nina Simone, Lucinda Williams, Abbey Lincoln, Bonnie Raitt, and many others singing songs both well- and lesser-known from the Dylan canon.
