Bob Dylan shocked his fans 40 years ago by embracing the electric guitar. Now he's stunning a few more by embracing another technological innovation: satellite radio. The singer has signed on to serve as host of a weekly one-hour program on XM Satellite Radio, spinning records and offering commentary on new music and other topics, starting in March. The famously reclusive 64-year-old performer said in a statement yesterday that "a lot of my own songs have been played on the radio, but this is the first time I've ever been on the other side of the mike."

FRIDAY UPDATE:  "The concert is still on! We will see you tonight!" reads the message on Baltimore Arena's website regarding tonight's Kanye West concert. The Yeezus show is on; check back tomorrow for my review. --------------- For the past decade, it seems no one can resist labeling Kanye West. The hip-hop forefather Russell Simmons, along with countless critics, have said he is a “genius,” while President Barack Obama has called him a “jackass” on more than one occasion, surely causing many detractors to nod in agreement.

IT WAS AFTER GETTING another alarming glimpse of Bob Dylan's frozen mug in that commercial for Victoria's Secret that I realized the whole concept behind celebrity product endorsements escapes me. Let's examine that Victoria's Secret commercial for a moment. OK, here's a company selling a product, namely sexy lingerie. It's a company that promotes a certain image of itself. An image of eternal youth. An image of playfulness. An image of sex appeal. In fact, the image of sex is promoted so relentlessly you get the feeling Victoria's Secret believes most of the world's ills - including war, poverty and environmental degradation - would largely disappear if only women would show more cleavage.

At its darkest, the Wallflowers song "Hand Me Down" sounds like the mother of all bad reviews. Over a rhythm guitar that's equal parts Tom Petty and Lou Reed, singer Jakob Dylan drily chides, "You won't ever amount to much / You won't be anyone." It gets worse from there, as the nameless accusers continue to berate our hero. But what really hurts isn't the venom in these lines, but the condescension. "It's not your fault that you embarrass us all," goes one apologetic jibe. Hearing it, you can't help but wince.

Edward J. Logue, 78, an urban planner who remade the face of Boston in the 1960s as director of the city's redevelopment authority, died yesterday at home in West Tisbury, Mass. His development program led to Government Center, the Prudential Center and a revitalization of the waterfront region, an overhaul of city neighborhoods that gave Boston a new image. His "Walkway to the Sea" -- the Faneuil Hall-Quincy Market restoration -- was another project conceived, approved and funded under his aegis.

This has been a heady year for the Jews of rock 'n' roll. After three fans announced their intention to launch a Web site called the Jewish Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the already well-established Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland sued for trademark infringement. Suddenly, a bevy of world-class lawyers was fighting over ... the right to tell the stories of Gene Simmons, Michael Bolton and four-fifths of the J. Geils Band. Then, a few weeks ago, the legal clouds lifted sufficiently to allow the three fans -- New Yorker writer Jeffrey Goldberg, Washington Post reporter David Segal and radio executive Allen Goldberg (no relation to Jeffrey)

Dave Hoekstra of the Chicago Sun-Times has a plan to save the Minnesota Twins from Major League Baseball's plan to eliminate two teams. More specifically, a man for the plan: Bob Dylan. How many years can a ballclub exist before it's washed to the sea? The answer may depend on a certain singer-songwriter from Minnesota pictured on the cover of a recent edition of Rolling Stone. "Look closely, on the picture inside, he is reading a copy of Baseball Weekly," Hoekstra said. "He's a Gemini ... makes sense he would save the Minnesota Twins.

"If I wasn't Bob Dylan, I'd probably think that Bob Dylan has a lot of answers myself. " —Bob Dylan Bob Dylan turns 70 on Tuesday, and one has to wonder about his relevance in the Digital Age — the age of hip-hop, Guitar Hero and "American Idol. " I teach a college course on the life and work of Bob Dylan, and, not surprisingly, this question arises among my students. But the question assumes that art loses value as the artist ages, that the beauty fades, that the wisdom dissipates.

The first time he was asked to consider working on a musical about the 1960s pop/rock sensation Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Marshall Brickman declined. "I still wake up screaming sometimes, thinking how my life would have been different had I stuck with saying no," he said by phone from his New York home. That initial reluctance could have derailed the project that turned into "Jersey Boys," the multiple Tony Award-winning, international monster hit that landed this week at the Hippodrome . The Bronx-born Brickman, former head writer of "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson" and co-screenwriter of such Woody Allen classics as "Annie Hall," had a good excuse when actor/writer/creative consultant Rick Elice suggested a Four Seasons show.

When music journalist and singer/songwriter Geoffrey Himes put together the inaugural Night of 1,000 Dylans last year, he had high expectations for the showcase of Bob Dylan's music. But Himes was surprised at just how great the response was: Baltimore music lovers came out in droves, packing the Creative Alliance at the Patterson and selling out the show. This year, Himes organized the second Night of 1,000 Dylans, which takes place Saturday at the Creative Alliance. While there won't exactly be 1,000 Dylans, there will be seven local acts, each playing about three songs from Dylan's catalog.

There have been any number of Bob Dylans over the years. He's been a poet, a prophet and a revolutionary. He's been a rocker, a folk singer, even a crooner. He's been a singer of love ballads, of protest songs, of country standards. A whole bunch of those Dylans will be performing at the Creative Alliance on Friday night. In fact, just about the only Dylan who won't be in Highlandtown will be the real one. Night of 1000 Dylans, set for 7:30 p.m. at the old Patterson Theater, will bring together 10 singer-songwriters from the Baltimore-Washington area, all channeling, in one form or another, America's most versatile songwriter.

Three years ago, it would have been another silent summer day at Pimlico Race Course. But yesterday, the Virgin Mobile Festival brought a stew of sights, sounds and smells to the grassy infield. A steady stream of young people pushed past vendor tents, puffing on cigarettes and smearing their faces with sunscreen. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club cranked out scathing blues rock from the North Stage, and bodies bounced to Chromeo's electro-funk beats in the Dance Tent. The festival's impact is undeniable.

Heath Ledger died at an age when many gifted actors first reach liftoff. At 28, he had achieved acclaim, popularity and riches. But he was just beginning to define himself as an actor and a star. In Todd Haines' I'm Not There (2007), he played a tortured big-screen idol, ill at ease with conventional accomplishment and fame, in the manner of Bob Dylan - or James Dean.

NAZARETH, Pa. -- Ten reasons for liking the Martin Guitar Museum, a marvelous raft over a three-century-old river of acoustic music: 10. The inviting atmosphere Visitors are greeted by a two-way display case shaped like a guitar sound hole and a wall quote from Martin acolyte Eric Clapton saying that he'd like to be resurrected as an OM-45. The feeling of a homey history factory, an idea lair, is accentuated by warm lights and comfortable colors, zigzagging display cases and intriguing coves (a re-creation of an old workshop, a pickin' parlor for playing instruments)
