Bob Dylan relates the history of mattresses

I am immersing myself in Bob Dylan's Theme Time Radio Hour on BBC Radio Two. It is perfect for a rainy Bank Holiday Monday with the rest of the family gone to watch Pirates of the Carribean 3, which I would only sleep through. Dylan's theme tonight is sleep, coincidentally.

Bob Dylan's introductions are weird. He has a particularly strange voice which sounds like someone Taking The Michael. He talks about strange things like the history of mattresses and the Three Bears. But he plays some superb tracks and the programme "hangs together" beautifully.

But all in all, Theme Time Radio is like swimming in chocolate and is radio as it should be. Well done Bob Dylan and well done BBC.
