3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]n a way the rare contemporary selections are more interesting, with Costello and Nirvana among those making the Zim's playlists."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.123
4 stars out of 5 -- "For three years, the Bard of Minnesota had his own radio show of wildly eclectic sounds of mostly 20th-century American popular music....The tunes are flawless."
Record Collector (magazine) - p.98
4 stars out of 5 -- "The constant chopping and changing of moods, eras and methodology makes this album almost impossible to review with any sense of continuity -- which in itself defines the brilliance of the radio show."

The first episode of Bob Dylan's Theme Time Radio Hour aired on May 3, 2006 and featured Dylan as DJ spinning an eclectic mix of folk, blues, R&B, soul, rock & roll, bebop, country, and even rap drawn from his personal record collection, and aside from revealing the broad sweep of Dylan's musical interests, the shows, each of which was woven around a single theme, were a fascinating tour through roots and urban music in all of its forms. This two-disc set contains 51 tracks, and it exhibits a delightful diversity, with sides ranging from Clarence Ashley's Appalachian banjo take on "Little Sadie" to Toots & the Maytals' "54-46 That's My Number," Marlene Dietrich's "No Love, No Nothin'," and Mel Blanc's always topical "Money," an eclectic mix if there ever were one. Throw in Roy Rogers, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Nirvana, Johnny Paycheck, Elvis Costello, Fred Astaire, Oscar Peterson, and the Mississippi Sheiks, and the sheer range of Dylan's musical interests amazes with its breadth and inclusiveness. ~ Steve Leggett
