Continuing a tradition dating back to the previous century, KPFA’s Derk Richardson and Larry Kelp co-host “Bob Dylan 76th Birthday Special” on Bob’s birthday: Wednesday, May 24, from 8 p.m. to midnight. Four hours of the Nobel Prize laureate’s greatest recordings, rarities, some fascinating cover versions by musicians from the Grateful Dead to Nina Simone, plus a salute to Bruce Langhorne (who died April 14), the lead guitarist on Dylan’s classic early recordings through 1965’s “Bringing It All Back Home”

From left: Bruce Langhorne, Carolyn Hester, Bob Dylan and Bill Lee (Spike Lee’s dad), 1961
