To help remember 9/11 on this anniversary, here is Jeannie Fino and Jesse going through each track on The Rising ranking their least favorite to their favorite.
Four years ago, in the 2nd ever episode of the podcast Colleen McNamara joined Jesse to talk 9/11 and Springsteen’s The Rising. Here is that episode in memory of 9/11.
Thanks to Ed Rakowski, Jesse had the change to talk to legendary Songwriter Mark Barkan. He write Lesley Gore’s hit She’s a fool, The Tra La La Song from the TV show The Banana Splits Adventure Hour (as well as being musical director for the show) and the Manfred Mann hit “Pretty Flamingo” a song often covered by Bruce especially early in his career. We discuss Mark’s musical journey and his latest project which you can find here – https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/street-walker-the-musical#/

The Set Lusting Bruce’s Birthday Project is coming along. I have 16 voice mails. I have another 5 emails that either I will read or find someone else to record for me. That is 21 out of my goal of 70 different fans sharing their thoughts on Bruce and wishing him a Happy Birthday. I have a few people who have said they still plan to reach out. If you are wanting to do this, please call 469-249-2442 and leave a message. Most people’s message is less than a minute. They are just saying their name, where they are from a sentence or two about their love of Bruce’s music and the wish him a Happy Birthday. I would like to have everything in by 9/6/19 to give me a couple of weeks to work on it. IF you are interested in recording your own message, send it to me as a wav, mp3 or mp4 file and I can add it to the project. My email address is email@example.com. I would like this to be in your voice but if you are too shy to share, email me and I will either read it myself or find some other fans to read it for you. Thank you in advance for your help. Remember have a little faith, there is magic in the night.
