Six O’Clock Triple shot – 5/23/14 Happy Birthday, Bob Dylan
(The Six O'Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)
We celebrate a rock and roll birthday tonight as we head into the Memorial Day Weekend. Bob Dylan turns 73 Saturday (5/24/14). Recently, Dylan felt some heat from a Croatian civil rights group after some politically charged comments caused controversy. The Council of Croats filed suit against Dylan in France after an interview with Rolling Stone. Bob was initially charged with a hate crime, but was acquitted of all counts earlier this year.
Tonight, we celebrate his birthday one night early with three of Bob's best. We'll roll to "Maggie's Farm", get rocked as we get "Tangled Up In Blue", and get stoned with "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35". It's tonight's Six O'Clock Triple Shot on 94.9 WMMQ!
