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

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.
