Cast: Bob Dylan
After taking note of a particularly powerful shift in pop culture during the 1960s, acclaimed jazz proponent Ralph J. Gleason played a crucial role in spotlighting such legendary San Francisco bands as The Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. A man who always seemed a bit ahead of his time, Gleason also recognized the remarkable talents of a radical young folk singer named Bob Dylan. When Dylan arrived on San Francisco on December 3, 1965 for a three night stand that would find him performing in both Berkeley and the western California musical hot spot, the televised press conference that followed would find the musician who had just gone electric at Newport fielding questions from not only Gleason, but such cultural luminaries as Allen Ginsberg and Bill Graham as well. It was this interview that would provide greater insight than ever before into the mind of the musical genius behind such classic songs as "Blowin' in the Wind," "Mr. Tambourine Man," and "Subterranean Homesick Blues."
