The 68th episode of Bob Dylan's
"Theme Time Radio Hour"
was his two hour long 'President's Day' sale.
This show was repeated in October 2008
between the 78th and the 79th episode,
a few days before more than 64 million wise Americans elected
Barack Obama as the 44th president of the USA on November 4th,
and Bob Dylan said during the band introduction in Minneapolis:
Tony Garnier, wearing the Obama button....all right...
Tony likes to think its a brand new time right now an age of light
Me, I was born in 1941, that's the year they bombed Pearl Harbor.
Probably been in a world of darkness ever since.
But it looks like things are gonna change now!
