Something rare to start off our Emergency Fundraiser this Monday. An excerpt of a session Bob Dylan did for the weekly broadcast Skip Weshner’s Accent On Sound, live from One Sheridan Square in New York on February 1963.
Skip Weshner was one of that handful of radio personalities of the FM era who regularly featured a vast array of International and folk acts appearing around the New York area from the 1950s to the early 1960s. He was responsible for bringing live Folk music to the attention of a much wider audience, since Weshner’s broadcasts were syndicated to numerous FM stations around the country.
Die hard fans have no doubt heard this, along with much of his early performances. But I confess to be very fond of this early period of Bob Dylan. And for a snowy February night in Greenwich Village, this one was a ray of warmth.
And – as you know, we’re in the first day of our Emergency Fundraiser. If you like these rarities and want to keep hearing them, please consider making a small pledge to help keep us from losing the archive and losing the site. We need your help.
