As we transition into The Songcircle's timeslot, we explore some of the lesser-known corners of Bob's discography, including a home recording of a 17-year old, Little Richard-besotted Bobby, some interesting alternate and live versions of songs from his classic period, a few tunes from the Basement Tapes, and a focus on a much-maligned, though beloved by your DJ, '80s album.
