Dylan's favourite

Halfway through season 3 of Bob Dylan's Theme Time Radio Hour, Tom Waits has reached the #1 spot on the list of "most-played" artists. You can find the list over at Expecting Rain. Waits himself is also an avid contributor to the radio show and is said to mail cassettes with ommentary to Dylan on a more or less regular basis.

That could explain why "Beyond Here Lies Nothing" sounds so familiar...

"Beyond here lies nothing" is stolen from Howlin Wolf "Who has been talking". And we all know that Tom has been under influence of Wolf too,, specially on the 'Heartattack and Vine' album.

If you'd like to hear all of Tom's taped contributions to TTRH I've posted them all on my blog Carnival Saloon: Tom Waits on Radio Bob.

(There's lots of other great Tom stuff there too)
