"Bob Dylan makes disc jockey debut

Music legend Bob Dylan is embarking on a new career, by becoming a regular DJ on US satellite radio service XM.

The 65-year-old singer presents Theme Time Radio Hour, an hour-long mix of songs based around a central theme.

The first show features songs inspired by the weather and performed by Jimi Hendrix, Judy Garland and Muddy Watters.

According to Lee Abrams, chief creative officer at XM, Dylan has 'complete creative freedom, both musically and in terms of what he says' ".

Should be interesting.
