Wet your whistle with DJ Jonathan’s July 12th show all about food!!! Listen to “One More Cup Of Coffee” from Dylan’s 1976 Desire album and a track from Bob Dylan & The Band’s Basement Tapes. James McMurtry’s “Cold Dog Soup” hits on the travails of being an artist, making references to The Beat Poets, Yeats and Tom Waits. He sings, “Ain’t no money in poetry. That’s what sets the poet free. I’ve had all the freedom I can stand.
“Cold dog soup and rainbow pie…that’s all it takes to get me by. Fill my belly till the day I die.”
