Dylan mentioned the freemasons on Theme Time Radio Hour. Introducing Charlie Walker's "Who Will Buy the Wine," he says that Charlie "was a freemason, and you can tell." He then went on: "Here are some other great freemasons that come out of the Grand Ol' Opry: Roy Acuff, Eddie Arnold, Grandpa Jones, Pee-Wee King, Little Jimmy Jenkins, Roy Clark, Charlie Louvin, and Grand Ol' Opry band member Joel Edwards. They've all committed themselves to the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man by becoming Master Masons. Preach on my brothers!" l
Dylan also claimed that "...all the presidents except Jimmy Carter were Freemasons." Of course, in various TTRH shows he also opined that Alexander Dumas wrote Airport 79 - The Concorde
, and made the very debatable claim that Ronald Reagan was a "friend of the black man." And of course, there's also his fractured retelling of the Krushchev/Nixon Kitchen Debate. http://www.dreamtimepodcast.com/2009/07 ... s-top.html"To me, the first lesson of being subversive is, don't tell people you're being subversive."
