Bob Dylan considers sat-nav role


Bob Dylan has revealed that he is speaking to a number of car companies about becoming the voice of their satellite navigation systems.

He revealed his plans during his weekly radio show broadcast on 6 Music.

His Theme Time Radio Hour is on Mondays at midnight. The singer is currently on hiatus, and this week's show was a repeat. His comments had not previously been reported.

The 68 year-old said he thought it be would be good for drivers to hear him saying things such as: "Take a left at the next street. No, a right. You know what, just go straight."

The normally reclusive Dylan, whose hits include Blowin' in the Wind and Like a Rolling Stone, admitted he does not normally like telling people what he is doing.

Other sat-nav voices include Susan Skipper, who appeared as Nigel Havers' posh girlfriend in the 1980s sitcom Don't Wait Up; and Eve Karpf, who voice-dubbed the famous line: "Monsieur, with these Rocher you are really spoiling us" in a chocolate commercial.
