Today’s is Bob Dylan’s 70th birthday. OR IS IT??????????????

One year ago, WDST’s program director Jimmy Buff sent me this image about Bob Dylan, arguably Woodstock’s most famous one-time resident.

Buff said then that the image from Dylan’s passport (isn’t his real name Robert Allen Zimmerman?)is from the liner notes the the “Bootleg Series Vol 1-3 Boxset.”

“Note the date,” Buff wrote. “My theory is Bob is happy to let the world celebrate the wrong date.”

Radio Woodstock is playing Dylan’s top 70 songs all day long and will giving away Dylan music. WDST will be at the Woodstock village green from noon to 2 p.m. today handing out free Bob Dylan birthday cake.

Mmmmmm, cake.

Here’s Weird Al Yankovic doing “Bob,” a nice homage to the “Subterranean Homesick Blues” video.
