Dylan to steer car-song theme

Singer Bob Dylan’s “Theme Time Radio Hour” on XM Satellite Radio focuses on cars this coming week.

Mr. Dylan has handpicked tunes, both all-time greats and more obscure choices, that celebrate the mystique of the automobile and America’s love of the open road.

As with each of his themed shows, he adds his own eclectic brand of commentary. From Parliament’s “My Automobile” and Joni Mitchell’s “Car on a Hill” to Sonny Boy Williamson III’s “Pontiac Blues,” Mr. Dylan’s personal favorites are woven into programming that Rolling Stone magazine recently called “revelatory.”

The Dylan car-themed show will be aired several times in coming days on XM Satellite Radio. Check local listings.
