Any guess on what the topic will be for their show? Perhaps candy, or the color red? Or maybe it’s one of the already announced themes: “Hello,” “Young & Old,” “California,” the 2nd Annual Countdown Show, “Dreams,” “Fruit,” “Something,” “Nothing,” “Streets,” “Parties,” and “Mail.

Oh, and on a Jack White-related note, does anyone else thing it’s HYSTERICAL that the UK CD single of “You Don’t Know What Love Is (You Just Do as You’re Told)” has a “Frat Rock” version? Hahaha. It takes me back to that White Stripes Roseland show where Jack yelled at the “Frat Fuckers” in the front of the crowd for squishing people. Ah, those were the days.
Theme Time Radio Hour
On Wednesday, September 19, Bob Dylan’s award-winning XM music show, Theme Time Radio Hour, will kick off its much anticipated second season. Along with the show’s signature eclectic mix of songs related to a specific theme and entertaining stories about the music and topics of interest, listeners will hear contributions from special guests, including Luke Wilson, Amy Sedaris, Jack White, John Cusack and Richard Lewis. The sultry voice of Ellen Barkin, will continue to herald the start of each “Theme Time” episode this season.
The first episode of season two will be devoted to the theme “Hello,” with a typically wide, varied and surprising song list. Fans can expect to hear future episodes this season dedicated to themes such as “Young & Old,” “California,” the 2nd Annual Countdown Show, “Dreams,” “Fruit,” “Something,” “Nothing,” “Streets,” “Parties,” and “Mail.”
New episodes of Theme Time Radio Hour, which airs Wednesdays at 10 a.m. ET on XM’s Deep Tracks (XM 40), will also be available all day every Wednesday on XMX (XM 2). In May 2006, Bob Dylan’s Theme Time Radio Hour debuted to critical-acclaim exclusively on XM; the show has become one of the network’s most popular programs, and is heard by nearly two million listeners each week. Among the show’s myriad accomplishments of the past year, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum added the show’s “Baseball” episode to its archives in June 2006.
