Okay, class, it's time to talk some primordial E Street history. Before Dr. Zoom & The Sonic Boom. Before Steel Mill. Before Child. Before Earth. Before the glory days of The Castiles, even, there were The Legend, The Merchants, and The Rogues ("Freehold version," noted Bruce Springsteen parenthetically in his Born to Run autobiography, "not to be confused with the later Shore version consisting of actual playing, singing musicians.")
Next week, Bruce Springsteen will return to E Street Radio with his first new episode of From My Home To Yours in two years. His special guests will be longtime friends and former bandmates from his very early bands in New Jersey. Joining Bruce will be Craig Caprioni, Mike Domanski, Donnie Powell, and Mike Wilson (who also went on to serve as Freehold, NJ's mayor, years after his teenage-rock-band phase.) Bruce and his guests will share stories and memories from playing in their local rock-and-roll scene, circa 1964-68. They also will discuss their musical influences, and play recordings of the songs they learned to cover via great records by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Animals, The Yardbirds, The Dave Clark Five, and more. Should be very educational... and a helluva lotta fun, to boot!
Next week's brand-new episode of From My Home To Yours will premiere exclusively on SiriusXM Channel 20 on Monday, October 9 at 10am ET. You also can catch replayed airings (again exclusively on SiriusXM Channel 20) on the following dates at the following times:
