iVoryTowerz Radio: The Boss is Back!

Not that Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen ever left our attention, but it seems this week more than at any time recently Springsteen's cultural presence headlines the zeitgeist. From the backstreets to the badlands, The Boss seems to be everywhere. He's got a new album (well received or not) that's topping the charts. He'll be playing the halftime show for Super Bowl XLIII with the E Street Band before heading out on the road again later in 2009. Although the underground podcast has long included Springsteen as a favorite, the program's overdue for a special focus on The Boss. So this week, expect music from both Springsteen and members of the E Street Band, along with bands influenced by Springsteen. For those who want a bit more variety, there's also music beyond the Jersey Shore Sound this week. We also delve into about 50 years of rock 'n roll including: country rock, alt-country, folk, heavy metal and punk. If The Boss can't rock you, nobody will. We advise high volume. Please enjoy responsibly. But definitely: Rock On!
