We listened to Bob Dylan, the 60’s counter-culture icon, after seeing his name mentioned in President Obama’s book A Promised Land. We also got to ask President Obama a few questions, and we'll ask him even more on the December episode of BookTube only on ALpost 12/16/20.

L-O-V-E you guys! Always honest, always open and thoughtful, always bring a smile to my face. PS, watch President Obama award Bob Dylan the Medal of Freedom. Bob Dylan did not show up to receive his Nobel prize, but he showed up for President Obama! Mutual respect.

“A Promised Land” live up to the promise of being an inimitable pleasure trip through an unexplored path through a hidden landscape of what we call as USA. Wonderfully written, sincere and nuanced, with all Obama's selflessness and accuracy. Obama's word is straightforward, simple to understand, yet full of the fragrances of education. As an outsider, I Believe that his America is exactly what America be supposed to be and is also the America that I visualized in my mind. He is in fact one of the brightest alumni of Harvard From the Preface to 1st chapter bring out the spirit of a noble mind, genuinely caring man who wants to make an optimistic change in his life time and world we exist in. The phrases and portraits indicate who he really is as a genuine human being. As you go through the book , you can listen to Obama's voice and expression clearly. it seems he is speaking exactly to the reader with thoroughly Selected words. This book, and Michelle Obama’s book, overall are the two most inspiring volumes I have ever read out. Let us pray that upcoming Presidents have as much civility, morality, integrity and moral judgement, motivation for good! There is no wonder that it’s a no.1 Bestseller Book! It's an remarkable book. Nothing more needs to be said than this. I definitely recommend it to each and every person. and I am sure that u will not be disappointed after purchasing this incredible book. if u want to buy book online from amazon here is the link

Wow! Just wow. What an honor to have a president recognize what you're doing. I was smiling so much it hurt. But what he said is so true...learn about others with curiosity and an open mind, explore other cultures, music, food, history; which is what makes us such a great nation. I was so shocked when he mentioned Dylan! He's my husband's #1 and I used his words to "The Wedding Song" as my vows 35 yrs ago. He recorded so many songs about racial injustice, civil rights and anti war. One of the best is "Hurricane", a true story that Mr. D had a big part in correcting. I love you guys! Stay safe.

That was outstanding! I don’t know if it's on the president's playlist, but given the title of his book, listen to "The Promised Land" by Bruce Springsteen. I know you've listened to a few of his songs already, but give that one a listen. What you're doing brings people together. Keep up the good work!

Was Obama’s appearance really a surprise? If not, why fake it? Maybe he popped in and then they re-enacted the surprise... ? 🤷🏽‍♀️ He definitely got good plugs in for his book! Sounds like a good read.

On the subject of Dylan, try Subterranean Homesick Blues. To me, it's hip hop before there was hip hop. And that's astonishing Barack Obama would take time to do this. Truly an amazing human being. Miss him and his leadership so much.

That was amazing guys. I've only commented a couple times, but I want to share that I lost one of my twin boys, Dylan, who was a terrific musician, almost 3 weeks ago. He was 32. It's been so hard not having that other shoulder to put my arm around. Watching you boys makes me smile...that twin thing is so real. Love to y'all, and be thankful for each other this year, and always.

Dylan. My gosh gentlemen, Bob Dylan is a legend. My favorite Dylan's song was "You Got To Serve Somebody".

I'm not a republican nor democrat so I can't say I was favorable towards Obama's presidency any more than trumps but I will say that regardless of whether you believed in Obama's policies, you can't deny the class, coolness and professionalism he displayed as president. At the end of the day, no matter what a person's beliefs are- I only see them for their actions and how they carry themselves.

Was recently introduced to you guys by my husband. Love that your generation (like my kids) discover and appreciate music from the historical spectrum. (I'm so proud my kids know music like they do - bet your parents feel the same pride.) You may have already come across these but here are some suggestions: Star Spangled Banner by Jimi Hendrix AT Woodstock with film footage, in fact a documentary would be awesome just on personal level. Netflix has a good one. Signs, Signs, Everywhere Signs - ALpost will find it. Song is (shrug), but message speaks of the time. The Mommas and the Poppas are a must. The Man in Black, Johny Cash, Hurt... Oh hell, never mind, you already did it. Try Coal Miners Daughter by Lorette Lynn - its auto biographical. I "don't do country" but Patsy Cline, DAMN - Crazy or I Fall To Pieces. Dueling Bangos and Devil Went Down To Georgia. Sweet Dreams by Annie Lennox you heard - Try Marilyn Manson, and Beautiful People. (I've stood next to those beautiful people, during my 2 week stay 'in the bubble', where their car cost more than my home and her shoes cost more than my car - I almost had sympathy for their ignorance, after all, they can't see what's outside their bubble.) Keep exploring history through music and have fun!

This show is EDIFYING (remember that from scripture) in so many ways. I get to see two young men doing their passion and everything that comes from it is GOOD! Seeing President Obama reaching out to you is telling on how wide the reach of your platform is. He came to acknowledge you and promote his book! Who can say that?! God bless and be well.

Wow how fantastic you kids are being so open minded to music you are because I as a young person could not get past the way certain music sounded to hear the message and you all can do that, I admire your ability to get past that, and I can very well understand president Obama's mixed tapes and the whole cassette tape thing with the whole pen and rolling the tape back into the cassette holder lol, but we are both children born in the 60's lol. Keep up your exploration of the music world and your ability to look past the way it may sound to hear the message within because "passion is my music and music is my passion" at least that's what I think....

Hello guys! I like you a lot! I think everyone should hear DIMASH KUDAIBERGEN at least one in their lifetime. He’s from Kazakhstan and he is the best singer in the world of all times. Yes, of all times. He has 7 octaves range and incredible voice control. You’ll be shocked. And you’ll be fucking sad to listen him so late. Here is the link of his most famous song SOS. It had viewed 600 millions in just 24 hours in China’s social media Weibo in 2017. It’s a record for worldwide. Jackie Chan had wanted to meet him after this performance. Thank you guys 💖

It's so funny to hear Obama again, talking about everyday things we all go through. I forgot how much I missed that. Some memories are so relatable no matter where you come from. Twins, I love you listening to Bob Dylan. The times are a changing and we'll see what is coming up.
