Birmingham’s Rojo continues to foster musicians 10 years after Bob Dylan recommended the neighborhood restaurant

Nearly 10 years ago, music icon Bob Dylan gave a shout-out to Rojo, the popular Highland Park neighborhood restaurant and bar, during his weekly satellite radio show.

During Dylan’s show, “Theme Time Radio Hour,” which highlighted his observations about the tunes of the day, Dylan made this comment following a song by the band NRBQ called, “12 Bar Blues”.

“That was a song about 12 bars. Here’s four more that I like. If you’re in Birmingham, Alabama, stop by the Rojo. That’s Spanish for red.”
