A must-listen for big Bruce fans

I’m a diehard Bruce fan and am learning new things all the time thanks to Hal and Flynn’s expertise. Every episode is giving me a new level of appreciation for the tours and albums they discuss, because each episode of this podcast really brings you back in time to each moment in Bruce’s career. Keep up the great work!

Every Springsteen aficionado should listen

Both hosts really know their stuff and they don’t “small talk” like most podcasts. They get right to the point/subject. What I dislike is, is that they are too critical at times. Who doesn’t like a Springsteen show where all his early stuff is played? Instead they tear his show apart and act like they should be making the setlist. They also brag constantly about how many shows they attended, etc and of course never get crappy seats.

Besides all that, a good podcast.

A credit to the fandom

Two serious fans delighting in discussing Bruce for the entertainment of other serious (and maybe not so serious) fans. I love listening and hearing their take on various aspects of Bruce's music and live performances and every once in a while their take makes me think "Ah, I hadn't viewed it that way before." [And it is definitely "waves."]
