099 – "One More Night"
Sign on the Window isn't the Bob Dylan podcast you need, but it's definitely the one that you want! Each week we select a Dylan song at random, live with the song for a week (or two) and then get together to discuss. This week we revisit 1969's Nashville Skyline and "One More Night." In this penultimate episode of Season 3, Kelly and Daniel talk about the dorkiness of the song, "nature" Bob versus "nurture" Bob, generic pop songs and children's TV shows (or, shows from our childhood, like Mr. Face and Stick Stickly, Blues Clues and Scruff McGruff).
