As I posted last week, I did an interview with Brian Wise on Triple R radio in Australia about Bob Dylan and the Basement Tapes.
I talk about the background and context in which the Basement Tapes sessions occurred, and why they’re important. Following my interview is an interview with T Bone Burnett.
The interviews aired this past Saturday, but now they’re available on-demand.
You can now stream all of it right now online at Triple R radio right here.

Recently I was interviewed at length by Triple R radio’s Brian Wise, who DJ’s a three-hour show every week called “Off the Record.”
Last Saturday the first of four or five segments from the interview aired on “Off the Record.” That segment focused on Bob Dylan and included some discussion of why Dylan is so important to the narrator of my novel, True Love Scars.
As part of his show, Wise also interviewed David Kinney, author of The Dylanologists, and music critic Bill Wyman talking about Dylan.
I was also recorded reading from my True Love Scars, and two sections about Dylan are part of the first segment.
You’ll find a transcript of the interview here at the Australian Addicted To Noise site, but if you listen you’ll hear me read two excerpts from the novel that are about how Bob Dylan has impacted the narrator’s life.
The Kinney and Wyman interviews follow the one with me.
Listen to “Off the Record” here.
