Patti Smith Presents Dylan's Life Story - And It's Free!

A free series of official Bob Dylan podcasts presented by Patti Smith has been made available by Sony.

Ten short casts have already been posted telling the astonishing story of

tenth episode, which was posted this week, took the story up to the late

All are legally downloadable as MP3 files from:
