Jesse is looking to do series of feedback episodes, where you share your thoughts about music, the show and of course Bruce.
Since January 2016, Rob Carmack and JB Clark have been giving us the basic facts about every Bruce Springsteen song in alphabetical order. This week they got to Zero and Blind Terry. What comes next? JB and Rob sit down with Jesse to review the past and share the future.
Today is Bruce Springsteen’s 70th Birthday. What do you get a man that has given us so much? How about a collection of Springsteen fans from around the world telling him how much they love him and sharing how much his music has meant to each of them? Sounds perfect, much better than a tie.
Happy Bruce Birthday to each of you. Please share this episode with another Springsteen fan. Please retweet the link and post the link on your social media pages. We want as many Springsteen/Music fans in the world to hear how much the music means to us.
Jesse is joined by Tim and Devin as they remember two rock legends, the great Eddie Money and Ric Ocasek. They will be missed.
Gabriel Bergmoser returns to the podcast to talk about Western Stars, Broadway and his new novel.

In today’s episode Jesse is joined by writer, Pulitzer prize finalist and super Springsteen fan Joyce Millman. They discuss her Springsteen journey, her writings, her first "beatle album" and why Western Stars wasn’t the album she wanted from Bruce at this time.
