Bruce Springsteen's first-ever radio performance and interview took place on January 9, 1973, and was broadcast live from WBCN's studios. Springsteen, who was in Boston for a week of concerts at Joe's Place (January 6, 1973) and Paul's Mall (January 8 through 14, 1973), was joined by members of the E Street Band (minus Vinnie Lopez), and was interviewed by WBCN's Maxanne Sartori.
"Don't you want to say a word about Asbury Park, New Jersey."
"I've been trying to get outta there for 20 years."
This is an unbelievable recording with some classic Bruce anecdotes and conversation. Songs include "Satin Doll," " Bishop Dance," "Circus Song," "Song to Orphans," and "Does this Bus Stop at 82nd Street," "Blinded By The Light."

Congrats to my alma mater who have stayed focused on hiring and retaining exceptional teachers.
I have to admit that I had no idea Kenyon existed, much less was a great college, when I first heard about it and compared it to the big schools on the east and west coasts. I'm thankful for the opportunity Kenyon provided, an incredible education and great place to learn.
Via the SI vault, via my dad, via nostalgia.
If you don't understand, don't try and understand. It's totally not worth investigating. But if you *do* understand, then please joy the cause.
So it's here. The official first week of the season. And it's a four-day work week to boot. I'm psyched.
While we were eating breakfast Sunday, my wife asked me, in that lovingly tolerant way wives sometimes do, how excited I was about the season starting. I was midway through a rankings discussion that began "birth of a child [up here], marriage here [only slightly lower], season starts [moves hand down just a bit]" as I saw the tolerance start to melt from her beautiful face.
Great blog for obsessive Eagles fans, which I believe, is all Eagles fans.
