The Top 10 New Year’s Resolutions Read by Bob Dylan

From 2006 to 2009, Bob Dylan hosted the Theme Time Radio Hour on Sirius Satellite Radio. Each show featured “an eclectic mix of songs, from a wide variety of musical genres, … along with Dylan’s on-air thoughts and commentary interspersed with phone calls, email readings, contributions from special guests and an array of classic radio IDs, jingles and promos from the past.” That eclectic mix also gave us this: Dylan reading, in his distinctive, quirky way, a list of the most oft-cited New Year’s Resolutions, ones that we annually make and sometimes break.

Happy New Year to all! And best of luck with the resolutions. If you need some help, check out this post: The Science of Willpower: 15 Tips for Making Your New Year’s Resolutions Last from Dr. Kelly McGonigal.

    Beware the “free” trial of SiriusXM . It’s nearly impossible to get out of, without incurring substantial fees !

    I’m a Long Time “Bob Dylan Theme Time Radio Hour” listener. It’s just as wonderful today as it was Years ago when the show first started. Keep Up the good work and Happy New Year!

    that sounds like Arlo Guthrie doing his Dylan impression, or wait, is that Bob doing his Arlo impression?

    I remember hearing this when it first aired. Gotta love Dylan. His singing voice is almost starting to sound like Louis Armstrong on his latest album. Must be due to all that hard living he was talking about giving up in his resolutions!
