Dylan Thang

"Theme Time" is a weekly radio show with the records chosen to fit a particular theme -- "mother," "baseball" and "tears" are some of them -- with Dylan playing and commenting on the various tunes.
Only three selections are from this decade: the White Stripes' explosive "Seven Nation Army," Mary Gauthier's downcast "I Drink" and The Yayhoos' country-soaked "Bottle and a Bible." Among the major figures from earlier years are Joe South ("Walk a Mile in My Shoes"), the Clash ("Tommy Gun"), Merle Haggard ("Mama Tried") and Bo Diddley ("Mona").
