Thread Name: Happy Birthday Bobby Zimmerman (May 2000)
Subject: RE: Happy Birthday Bobby Zimmerman
Shortly after his first album was released,
I heard it on an AM radio station out of Dallas,
Texas. They had a "folk" program at 2 a.m. central
time - middle of the night because most of their
listeners only wanted country. That's also where I
first heard Joan Baez and many others. I can't begin
to assess the impact his music had on the direction
my music took. The Weavers and Kingston Trio had
started me down that road, but his songs locked it
in. Ever so grateful. Happy birthday is in order.
