Dave Sutherland BBC Radio: Folk Map of the British Isles (208* d) RE: BBC Radio: Folk Map of the British Isles 06 Feb 20

The Bob Dylan passage was totally spurious.
50+ years ago it was obvious that he had used the structure of “Lord Randal” for “Hard Rain’s A- Gonna Fall” however I would be very interested to learn the source of the declaration that “Banks of Sicily” was the inspiration for “Times They Are A ‘Changing”? Having read a fair number of books, of varying degrees of credibility, re the career of Bob Dylan over those 50+ years this is the first time I have been made aware of that item.
Can we expect a similar section next week citing “Lord Franklyn” or “Nottamun Town” as further sources for his songs?
