Patti Smith hosts music and conversation about Bob Dylan. His friends, early influences and collaborators discuss their close relationships with Dylan, the stories behind his greatest songs and other memorable moments of his career. Journalists and biographers add critical insights and provide historical contexts. A few of today’s singer-songwriters also detail how Dylan’s art influenced their own lives and careers. We also hear comments from Dylan, himself, from interviews recorded throughout the last 45 years.
