In honor of Bruce’s 70th birthday, I’ve seen several people posting their list of their favorite 70 Springsteen songs. Anytime you pick songs, it is going to be controversial.

Here is my list, what would make you top 70? Email me at SetlustingBruce@gmail.com and let me know.

We are less than a week away from Bruce’s 70th birthday. I’m in the process of putting together all the different voice mails from fans. Fans who sent in emails will get to join the fun thanks to Phil, Martha and Molly, for reading the emails and sending me the recordings. I have been asking on social media for people to send in their last minute voice mails. I think by the time I publish this on Monday, we will have at least 70 different fans wishing Bruce the happiest of birthdays. It is not to late to be part of the celebration, call 469-249-2442 and leave your name, where you are from and a message for Bruce.
A quick episode thanking all the people who support the podcast via Patron. Jesse also lists the way that listeners can help the show grow besides becoming a Patron.
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. It’s a great discussion filled with funny stories and meaningful insight. Please check out her blog at https://joycemillman.wordpress.com/about/
