Bob Dylan's recent 70th birthday found host David Garland thinking about the ways Dylan has influenced and affected songwriters. One thing Dylan did was to show that songs could expand beyond the confines of the conventional three minute pop song form. Offered here are some old and recent long songs, by Dylan himself, and by Neil Young, John Jacob Niles, Joanna Newsom, and Alasdair Roberts.

I wish that there was time to listen to other cultures --even in other languages but the choices made were still excellent. In the Balkans, in particular Northern Greece in certain prefectures this is a tradition still maintained
