Question of the Day: Why not Bob?

They say politics makes strange bedfellows.  At very least, it was a strange line up on stage last night as Bob Dylan received the Presidential Medal of Freedom (among a few other notables.)

Historically, very few of the medal's recipients have made their names in folk music - none in rock.  So what makes Dylan eligible in your book?  Is anybody else more deserving?  Make your case with a song (and tell us your first name and hometown, por favor?

Here's today's Question of the Day playlist:

1. "Song to Woody" - Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan

2. "This Land is Your Land" - Pete Seeger, American Favorite Ballads

3. "Chimes of Freedom" - Bruce Springsteen, Chimes of Freedom (Live) EP

4. "The Times They Are A-Chaning" - Bob Dylan, The Times They Are A-Changing
