“Fans and Bands” will be the rather broad theme of Bruce Springsteen’s 19th DJ show on SiriusXM satellite radio, debuting at 10 a.m. March 10 on the network’s E Street Radio channel (channel 20). According to the SiriusXM blog, the show will “delve into musicians and their muses, and feature songs by Bruce himself, Tom Petty, MC5, Joe Strummer, and more.”
The show will be part of The Boss’ “From My Home to Yours” series, which Springsteen has been doing since April. You can read transcripts of what he has said on the previous 18 shows, and see YouTube videos of all the songs he has played, via these links:
APRIL 8 (a tribute to the late John Prine and more)
APRIL 24 (thoughts on life during pandemic, New York songs and more)
MAY 6 (when the pandemic is over, he promises, “50,000 people will once again scream their heads off somewhere in New Jersey”)
MAY 20 (a tribute to the late Little Richard and more)
JUNE 3 (protest songs and more)
JUNE 17 (a “rock ‘n’ roll requiem” for those who have died from coronavirus)
JULY 1 (discussion with and songs by Southside Johnny and Steven Van Zandt)
JULY 15 (summertime songs and memories)
JULY 29 (discussion with and songs by Patti Scialfa).
AUG. 14 (“In Dreams,” nocturnally themes songs and memories)
SEPT. 2 (songs about work, in honor of Labor Day)
SEPT. 16 (end of summer)
OCT. 7 (songs about cars)
OCT. 28 (Election Day- and Halloween-oriented songs)
NOV. 25 (Election Day victory, “music about music”)
DEC. 16 (“Hits of the Week”: music that he has been listening to lately)
JAN. 20 (“Lawyers, Guns & Money: An Inaugural Special”)
FEB. 24 (“New Born Soul”: songs of rebirth)

The shows have lasted between one and two hours each, with repeats and on-demand availability following the initial broadcast. Vol. 19 will also air March 10 at 6 p.m.; March 11 at 6 a.m. and 3 p.m.; March 12 at 10 a.m., 4 p.m. and midnight; March 13 at 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.; March 14 at 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.; March 17 at 7 a.m., 4 p.m. and midnight; and March 16 at 8 a.m.
