Yet another reason to love Bob Dylan

Original image

I know it's not terribly new, but since he's touring and he's got a new album at all, I just have to direct your attention (if it hasn't already been directed) to Bob Dylan's "Theme Time Radio Hour" on XM Satellite Radio. The show features songs Bob likes -- it's really that simple -- but, crucially, it also features Bob himself, providing quirky descriptions and banter as only he can. In a recent show arranged around the idea of "matrimony," he described one artist as "a tornado of a singer who can rise to great heights, but with a diameter of only a few hundred yards or less."

If Bob's not your thing, you're missing out maybe you'd prefer Tom Petty's show instead. Best I can tell, however, the only other remaining member of the five Traveling Wilburys is not working on a show of his own. (The other two are the late great Roy Orbison and George Harrison.)

Fans of Broadway hit Hamilton will soon be able to dine like the Founding Fathers: As Eater reports, a new Alexander Hamilton-inspired cookbook is slated for release in fall 2017.

Called The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating, and Entertaining in Hamilton’s World, the recipe collection by author Laura Kumin “takes you into Hamilton’s home and to his table, with historical information, recipes, and tips on how you can prepare food and serve the food that our founding fathers enjoyed in their day,” according to the Amazon description. It also recounts Hamilton’s favorite dishes, how he enjoyed them, and which ingredients were used.

Recipes included are cauliflower florets two ways, fried sausages and apples, gingerbread cake, and apple pie. (Cue the "young, scrappy, and hungry" references.) The cookbook’s official release is on November 21—but until then, you can stave off your appetite for all things Hamilton-related by downloading the musical’s new app.
