Our countdown of 2017 episodes continues with our most downloaded podcast of last year - Robyn Hitchcock on the Dylan classic 'Blonde on Blonde' ----- Legendary English singer-songwriter Robyn Hitchcock returns to the podcast to talk about an artist who’s influence has shaped his entire career - Bob Dylan and his iconic 1966 double album ‘Blond on Blonde’. We talk about why some people are obsessed with finding the literal inspiration behind every Bob line, how Robyn fell in love with Dylan at boarding school, why David Bowie was the British Bob Dylan, how the Nashville session players changed the way Dylan made records, Dylan’s knack for song titles, whether it matters what order you sing the verses to these songs in, why Visions of Johanna is Robyn’s favorite song and the difference between being ‘a Bob Dylan’ instead of ‘the Bob Dylan’.
My Favorite Album is a podcast unpacking the great works of pop music. Each episode features a different songwriter or musician discussing their favorite album of all time - their history with it, the making of the album, individual songs and the album’s influence on their own music.
