“My Hometown” will be the theme of Bruce Springsteen’s 26th DJ show on SiriusXM satellite radio, debuting Aug. 18 at 10 a.m. on the network’s E Street Radio channel (channel 20), it was announced by DJ Jim Rotolo on the channel today. Rotolo also said the show will include songs by Neko Case, Bob Seger, John Mellencamp, Bob Dylan and others.
(Aug. 17 Update: A post on the SiriusXM blog adds The Pogues, Eric Church, Dierks Bentley and Springsteen himself to the list, and says that on the show, Springsteen “honors the hometowns of some of the world’s biggest musicians.”)
The show will be part of The Boss’ “From My Home to Yours” series, which he has been doing since April 2020. Click here for an index of all the songs played in the series, as well as links to videos for the songs and transcripts for each show.
The shows have lasted from about 45 minutes to about two hours each, with repeats and on-demand availability following the initial broadcasts. “My Hometown” will repeat Aug. 18 at 6 p.m., Aug. 19 at noon, Aug. 20 at 6 a.m. and 4 p.m., Aug. 21 at 2 p.m., Aug. 22 at 10 p.m., and Aug. 23 at 7 a.m. and midnight.
