It's not every joint that can get The Voice of a Generation as its pitchman.

But music legend Bob Dylan gave a shout-out to Rojo, the neighborhood bar and eatery in Birmingham's Highland Park, during his weekly satellite radio show.

"Theme Time Radio Hour," which showcases quirky music and Dylan's offbeat observations each Wednesday on XM satellite radio, was based on the theme "Numbers 11 and Larger."

Following a song by the band NRBQ called "12 Bar Blues," Dylan croaked, "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."

He went on to mention bars in Burlington, Vt.; Providence, R.I.; and New York City.
