This week, Daniel and Kelly look at 1967’s “Dear Landlord.” They delve into landlords themselves, into how this song operates, into the Han Dynasty! It’ll be great!
“Words I can hear, and remember, and sing back!”
This week, Daniel and Kelly listened to and now discuss “Man Gave Names to All the Animals,” off 1979’s Slow Train Coming. In addition to most of the episode being animal facts, they also didn’t really hate the song as much as it maybe begs for.

“Folk songs were the underground story. If someone were to ask what’s going on, ‘Mr. Garfield’s been shot down, laid down. Nothing you can do.’ That’s what’s going on. Nobody needed to ask who Mr. Garfield was, they just nodded, they just knew.” – Bob Dylan
This week Daniel and Kelly listened to “Clothes Line Saga” off the The Basement Tapes. They talked about the recording process, the history of laundry and how to connect with this classic in a present tense.
“Hit that Boogie Woogie button!”
Join Daniel and Kelly as they talk, ever so briefly, about Bob Dylan’s instrumental from 1970’s Self Portrait, then at length about boogie-woogie music and artists.
“These Songs are not meant to be understood, you understand. They are only meant to terrify & comfort.” – John Berryman
