Dylan rumoured to be ending radio show

Bob Dylan has sparked rumours he is quit his three-year stint as the host of a satellite radio show - after naming the theme of his latest broadcast "goodbye".

The folk singer has hosted the Theme Time Radio Hour (TTRH) programme on Sirius XM since May 2006, playing a mix of blues, soul, country and pop music hits centred around a certain theme for each weekly show.

In between dishing out advice to callers, the singer made the cryptic musical theme clear during last week's100th episode.

He ended the hour-long broadcast to Woody Guthrie's 'So Long, It's Been Good to Know Yuh' and the sound of a needle screeching at the end of a vinyl record.

An official announcement has yet to be made.
