Musician Jim Glover depicted in film Inside Llewyn Davis
Today on Radioactivity Rob Lorei interviews a real life character in the film Inside Llewyn Davis. Llewyn Davis is loosely based on folk singer Dave Van Ronk. The character is depicted with a couple called "Jim and Jean" performing at a club called The Gaslight in lower Manhattan. Although the directors of the film (the Coen Brothers) say the characters in the film are fictitious, there really was a Jim and Jean who recorded four albums and were active in the Village folk scene in the 1960's. Jim now lives here in the Tampa Bay area. Jim Glover, portrayed by Justin Timberlake in the film, talks with Rob about the Greenwich Village folk scene in 1961.
