The Ongoing History of New Music, Episode 858: The Alt-Rock Influence of Bruce Springsteen

I’m always looking for new ways to explore the world of alt-rock, so I’m trying a slightly different tack with this episode. While Bruce Springsteen is a long way off from the alternative universe, he has had a surprising impact on our music. This show names names and illustrates how far that influence has actually gone.

Songs on this program include:

U2, Pride in the Name of Love (Live)

Keep the Car Running (Live)/Arcade Fire

The Ghost of Tom Joad/Rage Against the Machine

The ’59 Sound/Gaslight Anthem

The Hold Steady/Stay Positive

Betterman (Live)/Eddie Vedder and Bruce Springsteen

Fortunate Son (Live)/Dave Grohl, Bruce Springsteen, Zack Brown

Killers, When You Were Young

Eric Wilhite has created this playlist for us.

The Ongoing History of New Music can be heard on the following stations:

We’re still looking for more affiliates in Calgary, Kamloops, Kelowna, Regina, Saskatoon, Brandon, Windsor,  Montreal, Halifax, Charlottetown, Moncton, Fredericton, and St John’s and anywhere else with a transmitter. If you’re in any of those markets and you want the show, lemme know and I’ll see what I can do.

If you ever miss a show, you can always get the podcast edition available through Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you get your on-demand audio.
