Troubadour For The 90s Linda talks to singer-songwriter Dan Bern. Bern sounds a bit -- at first -- like an early Bob Dylan. But his imaginative songs take strange turns away from folk music, thru the surreal into cosmic connections that defy logic yet make their point at some other level. He doesn't see his songs as merely funny; he says he's trying for the mood of the Marx Brothers or Chaplin - to not just be humorous, but weave in deeper feelings. His newest CD is "Dan Bern".
