We listened to Bob Dylan, the 60’s counter-culture icon, after seeing his name mentioned in President Obama’s book A Promised Land. We also got to ask President Obama a few questions, and we'll ask him even more on the December episode of BookTube only on ALnets 12/16/20.

Bob Dylan(Robert Zimmerman)folk singer in the 60's ..folk songs and protest songs. the 60's were turbulent times. Vietnam War..and at that time, the US had a "draft"system..where the govt might choose you to go to war...and you HAD to go..or face jail. Many dodged the draft and went to Canada ..Rev King,Malcom X , marches desegregation.. Many demanded that the laws needed changing.

I’m reading Obama’s book now & seeing this just made me smile. I miss him as our President. I’m miss Michelle. The last 4 years have left me stunned. As much as I have hope for the next administration, I long for the trust I felt when this beautiful family was our First Family. Such hope. Such promise. Such integrity. If you don’t agree, save your breath & save yourself the embarrassment.

Although Obama was a horrible President, he was definitely correct when he said you two are exposing yourselves to different genres and time periods which is admirable.

Out of all the music you have listened to has anything gotten into your regular rotation because you liked it so much?

This was the intro credits, for the 'Watchmen' film, and plays over a scene full of Easter Eggs, that expand on material that didn't make it into the film for space reasons. You see the first generation of 1930s costumed heroes, falling into addiction, madness, getting killed in action, being replaced by the more jaded new generation.

I’m ecstatic for both of you, Tim and Fred! You’d already reached so many people and experienced some every cool firsts but you’ve now reached a unique echelon by meeting and talking to President Obama. It’s been an exciting adventure watching you guys listen and react to so many vastly different types of music. Your reactions are priceless, you make us laugh, smile, tear up and we remember oldies and discover new music with you. We love your heartfelt comments you share because you’re connecting with so many people from such different backgrounds worldwide. But you will never forget meeting Prez O! Just think about that - President Obama knows who you are. Officially wowed! ☮️ & 💟

That's great. He's a great man I miss him. Talk about mixing music we're older them him. My brother used to mix music on a reel to reel recorder from the radio. In Friday nights they didn't have commercials. Then we got excited when the cassette tapes came out. Good ole days.

Now guys I tried to get you to do Pat Foster "Talkin Hitler" . He was also a folksinger in the 50s and 60s. If you search you tube for "pat foster dick weissman talkin to hitler" you can hear him singing. Pat Foster used to hang out in the folksinger place in NYC in Greenwich Village. He knew Bob Dylan, Woody Gutherie, Phil Ochs, Dick Weissman, and others. So PLEASE do Pat Foster. He was my father in law. He died when he was 61.

LOVE this - just one more thing that's made me cry (in a good way!) recently. Mad props to you both for grabbing the attention of, and getting to talk to!! President Obama. How I miss that voice of kindness and reason. I'm hoping you'll react to some holiday music this season? Please? Knowing how you love Frank Sinatra, check out his version of Jingle Bells. And Christmas in Hollis by Run DMC - it's Christmas rap!

Simply said, if Bob Dylan is one of President Obama's favs, it's for a very good reason. He is a Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, considered one of the best songwriters of the 20th century and his music has been considered poetry.

WOW!! How fantastic, and what an honour 😊 you’re obviously doing very well, and now you’re going to do even better. I became a Bob Dylan fan when I was 13 (almost 57 years ago) a friend brought his album home from America and I fell in love with it, and Dylan, straight away ! All his songs are fantastic, but his protest songs are the best!

I love you guys - but WTF is up with ALnets ads now? Breaking in the middle of a freaking sublime song to show us an utterly wanky ad - no TWO utterly wanky ads. Way to ruin an experience. Anything I can do in settings to stop this abomination form happening? If not, anything the channel runners can do?

Wow. With BLM I’ve been a more Ernest way...I have a lot to learn. Really didn’t know SO many suffer SO much because we have been divided. If we didn’t have the last pres I might never have known all these pretty horrific things happen every day (actual physical abuse, emotional abuse, mental anguish, spiritual loss). Now I know it’s a matter of days before a new bunch enter as government. I’m trying to get used to just breathing without intense anxiety upon waking each morning to some thing in the news, It’s gonna take time. I feel like we could have PTSD of some level (who kept up with daily news). Now I’m confident that you younger people will engage , will become present in the solution of all this discord. I’m hopeful we can save all living things (including the earth) as we change together into a loving 🥰 caring place for all. You two are SO awesome in presenting so many formats with your music. I listen to everything! LOVE ❤️ it. Thank you.
