In which I resist the temptation to pun off a Dylan song: the much-discussed radio show, now for free

(This info comes courtesy of the Very Short List, a soon-to-be-launched daily email update of “the best entertainment, media, and culture. … Each weekday, VSL subscribers get to read about a single recommended gem.” VSL hasn’t officially been launched yet — I’ll include info when it is — but the selections they’ve had so far in their testing phase has been great. Oh, also: it’s free.)

Since my post about Dylan’s “Theme Time Radio Hour” on XM satellite radio, I’ve gotten plenty of emails asking how people can hear said show without signing up for XM. Now there’s a way: AOL has started offering free streaming of Dylan’s show via AOL radio. You’ll need an AOL signon or an AIM screen name; if you don’t already have one, you can get one for free. The show airs Wednesday mornings at 10 am and noon, Fridays at 6 pm, and Sundays at 8 am and 8 pm. To find it, go to the XM menu on the AOL radio page and click on “Deep Tracks” at any of the appointed times; the show will start streaming automatically.
