World Cafe Playlist for 05/24/2021

A celebration of Bob Dylan’s 80th birthday with host Raina Douris

It’s Bob Dylan’s 80th birthday bash on the World Cafe! A baby named Robert Allen Zimmerman was born May 24th, 1941 in Duluth, Minnesota, and he grew up to be one of the greatest songwriters of all time. To celebrate this milestone birthday, it’s a whole show of Dylan songs performed by artists who love him – like Sam Cooke’s take on “Blowin’ In The Wind” and Susan Tedeschi performing “Lord Protect My Child.” We’ll hear Bob doing some of his own songs, too.
