Kabuki Square

 February's show is another cavalcade of covers, this time focusing on the music of Bob Dylan. I've indulged myself in this episode with several of my best loved tunes. As usual, it's a mix of songs you may know well, and some you have never heard of. 

Please do email me to let me know what you think.

As always, you can listen to the show by grabbing a direct download here:EMFABFEB2021

Here's a Dylan cover that didn't make it into the show, not because I didn't like it, but because the visual component is necessary, I think. Utterly charming.
