Bob Dylan Interview | Mary Travers and Friend Radio Show

In his book No One Else Could Play That Tune Clinton Heylin notes that the only contemporary radio interview in which Bob Dylan discussed Blood On The Tracks was with Mary Travers but he carefully steered her away from it after a brief exchange. This is said interview (just the talk, the commercials and music are edited out). They also talk Woody Guthrie, topical songs, and about the then forthcoming Basement Tapes release. At one stage the conversation gets a little philosophical until Bob points out to Travers that she is crossing another one of his red lines.

Mickey Bradley Radio Show | Leave The Capital Special

Paul Hanley met up with Mickey Bradley of The Undertones at Louder Than Words Festival in Manchester. They exchanged signed books. (Paul once stood in on drums for The Undertones at a gig in the Shetland Islands which is a whole story in itself!) When Mickey got back home it was clear he was fired up by the book and dedicated half of his weekly record show on Radio Ulster to the it. Even that wasn’t enough to satisfy his enthusiasm, he did the same the following week with the second part of the book. We’ve wired both together here seamlessley for your enjoyment.
