Rural Ledge-ucation #11: Bob Dylan's 70th Birthday

The world's greatest songwriter turns 70 on Tuesday, May 24, so it seems fitting that this week's Rural Ledge-ucation celebrates this milestone with an episode of cover versions of his great tunes. It's probably even more fitting that the sources for these tracks come from bootlegs. There are 35 volumes of a bootleg series entitled Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan, and this show proves they're all full of great treasures.

Listen to it now via the iPhone/Android app, or download the actual file here.
