Bob Dylan, your birthday card is waiting




Bob Dylan week here on Soundcheck (see here and here) continues with a look at Joan Herman of Tampa, who's a woman on a mission.

That mission: To give Bob Dylan a birthday banner that's 80 feet long. Never mind that Dylan's birthday is in May. Countless hardcore Dylan fans have signed it, and she wants to present it to him at Dylan's concert tonight in Tampa.

It doesn't look like it's going to happen, said Joan's husband, Don. "He's a recluse, a very private person," he said. (Yes, clearly, as anyone who caught Dylan's recent appearance on Pawn Stars can tell you.)
