Sept. 22: 'Actors on Acting'

Richard Davison, University of Delaware professor emeritus of English, will discuss "Actors on Acting" during a presentation at 10:30 a.m., Monday, Sept. 22, at the Newark Senior Center.

Sept. 22: 'Disabled Upon Arrival'

Jay Dolmage, associate professor at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, will present a talk titled "Disabled Upon Arrival: Technologies of Disablement and Racialization at the Border" at 3:30 p.m., Monday, Sept. 22, in 127 Memorial Hall.

WVUD DJs Rich Campbell, a Morris Library staff member, and John Campbell, will host the four-hour show, which will feature songs from throughout Dylan's five-decade career.

"We want to represent the breadth and depth of Dylan's work. Most people know Blowin' in the Wind or Like a Rolling Stone but may not have heard other great songs like Blind Willie McTell or One More Cup of Coffee," said Rich Campbell. "Also while there are many fine cover versions of Dylan's songs, we're sticking to his own recordings, many of which don't receive much radio airplay."

Dylan has won multiple Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988. He has appeared at the University of Delaware three times, most recently in April 2013.

Listeners can tune in at 91.3 FM or online.
