Bob Vs. Bob

While surfing the radio dial on the afternoon of March 11, I stopped on the Mountain, at 99.5 FM, long enough to hear what sure sounded to me like the tail end of a Bob Dylan song -- specifically "Shelter From the Storm," from the 1975 album Blood on the Tracks. But according to the Mountain guide working this shift, I was wrong. "That's Bob Denver on the Mountain," he said.
