Music CommentaryMusicMusic History

A Bob Dylan Primer is a series of broadcasts dedicated to the work and life of Bob Dylan. The first season consists of 12 episodes, appearing approximately once a month, and covering the time period from Dylan’s youth in Minnesota and early days in New York City up to the release of Dylan’s Time Out Of Mind in 1997. I’ve attempted to combine a detailed account of Dylan’s life with my own personal observations about Dylan’s creative output and place in our world. It’s my hope that A Bob Dylan Primer will be embraced by a wide range of people, from Dylan fanatics to those who are just trying to understand what all the fuss might be about.

  • Great series for those new to Dylan and those not

    I only discovered this podcast, having already sampled or become obsessed with several other Dylan casts. I really like the straightforward format of this one and think the host has some new things to say (and a very cool voice).

Michael has a very different look at the career of Dylan than anything I have come across in years. Like Michael, I stumbled onto Dylan in the early 70’s. Although I actually had heard more Dylan than I thought at the time.

  • Epiphany

    Both a pr-eye-mer and a primer, this series came at a most unique time in history-dedicated to an impossibly unique artist, laureate and entertainer that voices a love, a respect and an awe of the talent of an individual that himself has expressed he is no different than you or I. Thank you Michael & Associates

  • Road Map for the Soul

    2020 was shaped up to be my “Year of Dylan.” Even before the zeitgeist defined itself by the events of the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter Movement, I found myself pulled towards Dylan. Clairvoyance or coincidence, it turned out to be a saving grace. It is no exaggeration to say that my yearlong obsession with Dylan was one of the few crutches that allowed me to limp across the 2020 finish line. more
