Bob Dylan may lend his voice to GPS program



Tbd-bobdylan082709 Remember how Bob Dylan got picked up by some clueless New jersey cops because he was wandering around a Long Branch neighborhood before a show? Maybe he would have had better luck if he had been following a GPS -- with his voice on it.

The 68-year-old said on his satellite radio show, Theme Time Radio Hour, that he is considering voicing a program for a direction-finder in the future, the New York Times says.

“I’m talking to a couple of car companies about being the voice of their GPS system,” he said, although he conceded he may not be the best choice. “Left at the next street. No, right. You know what? Just go straight. I probably shouldn’t do it because whichever way I go, I always end up at one place — on Lonely Avenue."

Aw. At least the cops in Jersey will pick him up. Maybe he should play his upcoming charity Christmas album, Christmas in the Heart, to cheer himself up a bit.
