Desert Island Brains

Because the clocks went back last night, I've been up since 5.15. So it was very early this morning when I heard on the radio that Kirsty Young's guest on today's Desert Island Discs is the frighteningly gifted Ian Bostridge. I'm intrigued to learn that one of his picks is Bob Dylan's Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right, one of my favourites. It ain't no use a' looking on the BBC web site because at the time of writing it’s out of date. The programme will be on at 11.15 this morning. I'm there.
Edit I've changed the Dylan link to the original version.
