Ep 67 Jay Thunder Road - Set Lusting Bruce

In today’s episode of Set Lusting Bruce Jesse and 3 time guest Jay Armstrong take a trip down Thunder Road.  Jay brings his background as a English teacher and as a writer to explore one of Bruce’s most popular songs. Jay and Jesse consider Thunder Road to be a modern classic both as a song and as a poem.  Robert Frost, Romeo and Juliet, and the movie Notting Hill are just some of the references that are brought up in the discussion.  Jay also pops Jesse’s bubble and points out that Jesse’s been listening to the song wrong all his life!
