Online radio destination AOL Radio will begin simulcasting Bob Dylan’s weekly XM Satellite Radio show “Theme Time Radio Hour” on Wednesday (Aug. 30).

In addition, Dylan fans can catch 18 "Theme Time" shows back-to-back as part of XM’s weekend special, which will stream on AOL Radio beginning Friday (Sept. 1).

"Dylan fans like me have long wondered what music moves and inspires the man, so to hear him playing DJ on the 'Theme Time Radio Hour' is as insightful as it is entertaining," said Erik Flannigan, GM/VP of AOL Music. "We're thrilled AOL Music will expand the audience for this truly one-of-a-kind program."

Dylan's "Theme Time Radio Hour" debuted in May 2006 and airs Wednesdays at 10 a.m. ET on XM’s “Deep Tracks” channel, with additional encores airing throughout the week.

This is the first time that the show is being made available to non-subscribers and free of charge.
