May 3: Culture and cuisine

On May 3, UD's Master Players Concert Series will present the final World Kitchen Series dinner and mixer event, featuring international artist Emad Jano Hemeda.

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.
