The Dream Dylan Concert - on radio

Thanks to Martin Cowan for the tip that BBC Radio 2 is to broadcast a compilation of 11 Dylan performances played 1962-2001, including Like A Rolling Stone from 1974 and The Groom's Still Waiting at the Altar from 1980.

The Dream Dylan Concert is on BBC Radio 2 at 8pm on 6 October. Many Radio 2 shows are available via the web for seven days after broadcast, though some, including Theme Time Radio Hour, are only available in the UK, for copyright reasons.

The Dream Dylan Concert looks well worth hearing/taping – and it's not, as I first suspected, the Japanese CD, Bob Dylan Live 1961-2000.
