Bruce Springsteen will be doing a DJ show on SiriusXM satellite radio today (July 29) at 10 a.m., after all.
Though I posted yesterday that he wouldn’t, based on the E Street Radio schedule on the SiriusXM web site, which showed another show in that time slot (and still does, as of 8:30 a.m. this morning), the announcement has been made that Springsteen’s ninth DJ show will in fact air. It will be titled “Rumble Doll,” and feature Springsteen’s wife, Patti Scialfa.
Today happens to be Scialfa’s birthday.
Springsteen has been doing the show, titled “From My Home to Yours,” every other Wednesday since April 8 — except for April 22. That week, the show was on a Friday (April 24) instead of a Wednesday.
To read transcripts of what Springsteen has said on the previous eight DJ shows, and see YouTube videos of all the songs he has played, click here for April 8, here for April 24, here for May 6, here for May 20, here for June 3, here for June 17, here for the July 1 show (which featured discussion with and songs by Southside Johnny and Steven Van Zandt), and here for July 15.
