Bob Dylan: VH1 gives thanks; Willie Nelson chats with Dan Rather

BobdylanVH1 Classic has a Positively Fourth Street treat on Thanksgiving for overstuffed Bob Dylan fans.

As if there isn’t enough Dylan fever stirred up by the impending release of Todd Haynes’ biopic “I’m Not There,” VH1 Classic is offering a 2 p.m. screening of a Bob doc from the Cate Blanchett years, “Don’t Look Back,” followed at 4 p.m. by “Bob Dylan Unplugged,” an acoustic concert spesh from 1994. And at 6 p.m. it’ll cap the night with an airing of Martin Scorsese’s 2005 doc “Bob Dylan: No Direction Home.” …

Meanwhile, on Sunday HD Net has a program that Dylan might be inclined to watch, “American Voices: A Conversation with Dan Rather and Willie Nelson.”

Rather will conduct what’s described as an hourlong wide-ranging interview with his fellow Texan in which the Red-Headed Stranger riffs about the war in Iraq, the state of family farms and the legalization of marijuana. The 8 p.m. spesh will be followed at 9 p.m. by highlight’s from this year’s Farm Aid benefit concert in September, including perfs by Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews,Willienelson_2   the Allman Brothers Band, Counting Crows and Montgomery Gentry. One of the many reasons to love Willie Nelson is that Farm Aid, the close-to-home charity Nelson founded in the dark days of the Reagan era, is now in its 22nd year. Funny how time slips away…
