Friday at noon on American Routes: Bob Dylan's songs are part of American consciousness, with sources and symbols drawing from old-time country and folk, blues and ballads, ancient and modern poetry, the beauties and absurdities of life, love and loss. His contributions to the big river of songs have grown and been recognized worldwide. The young man from Hibbing, Minnesota, is now an elder... a Nobel Laureate; but his listeners didn't need that or any such weathervane to prize Bob Dylan.
