It's Star Wars on Satellite Radio-Bob Dylan to DJ satellite radio show

"Bob Dylan shocked his fans 40 years ago by embracing the electric guitar. Now he's stunning a few more by embracing another technological innovation: satellite radio.

The singer has signed on to serve as host of a weekly one-hour program on XM Satellite Radio, spinning records and offering commentary on new music and other topics, starting in March. The famously reclusive 64-year-old performer said in a statement yesterday that 'a lot of my own songs have been played on the radio, but this is the first time I've ever been on the other side of the mike.'"

First Victoria's Secret commercials, now this. Much as I like Dylan, it's starting to look like he's selling out. I'd probably be less concerned if he was on Sirius, but XM sucks, and/because it's owned by Clear Channel!

Ouch. I didn't know it was owned by Clear Channel. Do you think Bob needs the money?
