University of Delaware graduates planning to attend Alumni Weekend are encouraged to register for the annual Blue Hen 5K walk and run, which will be held Sunday morning, June 5.

June 6-9: Food and culture series

The 20th annual June Lecture Series at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UD in Wilmington will be held June 6-9. Titled 'June a la Carte,' this year's program focuses on great political documents, feminism, world politics and a Newark cuisine sampler.

WVUD DJs Rich Campbell, a Morris Library staff member, and John Campbell, will host the four-hour show, which will feature songs from throughout Dylan's five-decade career.

"We want to represent the breadth and depth of Dylan's work. Most people know Blowin' in the Wind or Like a Rolling Stone but may not have heard other great songs like Blind Willie McTell or One More Cup of Coffee," said Rich Campbell. "Also while there are many fine cover versions of Dylan's songs, we're sticking to his own recordings, many of which don't receive much radio airplay."

Dylan has won multiple Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988. He has appeared at the University of Delaware three times, most recently in April 2013.

Listeners can tune in at 91.3 FM or online.
