Today's edition featured new music from some legendary performers and a phone conversation with another legendary performer. Robert Plant's new album, a new release from Loudon Wainwright III, and the last studio album from the late Jesse Winchester were highlighted. We spoke with another legend, singer/songwriter Iain Matthews, whose musical roots can be traced to his work as a founding member of Fairport Convention, but who has followed a most intriguing musical path since the heyday of Fairport. He plays The University Cafe this evening, with master guitarist Jim Fogarty accompanying him, and our friends from Butchers Blind opening. (www.universitycafe.org)

Our annual All-Dylan program to celebrate his 73rd birthday this Saturday. Since Dylan's fourth album, Another Side of Bob Dylan, will see the 50th anniversary of its release this August, we based our program on that album and the recording session for the album, playing tracks from the album as well as recordings from the session that were not included on the released album. We also roamed the extensive Dylan catalogue for other songs and included quite a few cover versions as well.
