The Dylan Hour with Lisa Finnie
Sundays 11am - 12pm (Pacific Time)
The Dylan Hour features the music of and related works by and about American singer-songwriter, author, musician and poet Bob Dylan. The show is programmed, produced and hosted by Lisa Finnie, a Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter and longtime Bob Dylan fan. Lisa plays greatest hits and classic album cuts along with rare and obscure tracks from Dylan’s five illustrious decades of recording.
The Dylan Hour is a theme-based show, and each week Lisa plays Dylan’s sound recordings that she links by various ideas, often selecting themes that relate to happenings in the world of Bob Dylan as well as general topics in the news, social and political events, holidays, the weather, etc. In addition to tying the songs together by theme, Lisa researches and incorporates background information about each track into her broadcast, such as musician and producer credits and recording session dates and locations.
Lisa also conducts periodic interviews with writers and artists who have participated in Bob Dylan-related projects. Some special interview guests have included author and Dylanologist, Michael Gray; Princeton professor, historian and author Sean Wilentz; former LA Times pop music critic and editor Robert Hilburn; film director Todd Haynes; cultural critic and author Greil Marcus; author/musician/broadcaster Sid Griffin; and musician/journalist Michael Simmons.
With Dylan’s huge back catalog and steady stream of contemporary work, Lisa has had the good fortune of expanding, tenfold, her own appreciation and knowledge of Dylan’s material since taking over the weekly programming of The Dylan Hour in 2006. She was honored to participate as a guest lecturer for a gallery tour of Experience Music Project’s exhibit Bob Dylan’s American Journey 1956-1966 at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles in 2008.
Lisa welcomes listener requests, show theme suggestions and other feedback for The Dylan Hour.
