On today's show:
Scorsese's Take On A Dylan Tour
(Starts at 9:00)
Bob Dylan's 1975 Rolling Thunder tour was an antidote to the arena shows he'd played the previous year with The Band. He assembled a group of musicians and a rotating cast of accomplices that included Allen Ginsberg, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell and others, and they played small venues, mostly on the East Coast, with Dylan himself driving one of the tour buses. Martin Scorsese's documentary uses archival footage and new interviews to recount the tour. Producer Margaret Bodde and editor David Tedeschi spoke with guest host Steven Cuevas about the project.
The Culture Week-In-Review
(Starts at 1:00)
This week brought a lot of news from the world of culture: the New York Times revealed the true damage of a 2008 fire on the Universal Studios backlot; the TV Academy punished some members for allegedly taking part on block voting for potential Emmy nominees. We talk about those stories and more with L.A. Times TV critic Lorraine Ali.
