Thanks for all the Fish -  Episode 1: Jesse
 
It’s November and many people including Jesse posts a gratitude post each day on their Facebook page.  For each day of November, you take a few moments and share on your page something you are thankful to have in your life.  It could be family, friends, music, food, beverages or even a TV show.  Jesse doesn’t think he can get enough online fans to share with him a recording of them saying what they are thankful for but he’s going to try.  Send your thank you list to Jesse at SetLustingBruce@Gmail.com if you want him to read you note or you can record a short message and send it to him at 214-736-3121.   To start the month off, Jesse talks about this podcast and what it has meant to him.
 
The podcast continues it’s walk through the bookstore talking to fans who were able to get their moment in the spotlight talking to Bruce and getting their photo taken at bookstores across the USA (but not in Texas not that Jesse is bitter).  In today’s episode Jesse is joined by fellow Texan Robin.  Robin shares her story of flying off to Sweden for a quick weekend trip to see Bruce and her flying to the great Northwest to share with Bruce one of his own catch phrases.  Hope you enjoy hearing this one as much as Jesse and Robin had recording it.

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!
