An hour of exceptional music handpicked by the rock superstar

Bruce turns DJ in this new series, recorded at his home in New Jersey where he's currently in lockdown with his wife Patti Scialfa. He plays an hour of his favourite artists.

We've all had to learn new things during the pandemic, and rock superstar Bruce Springsteen is no exception! Locked down at his home in new Jersey, alongside wife Patti Scialfa, he's turned himself into a radio DJ, and the result is this new Radio 2 series.

Broadcasting from his house, each week Bruce will be playing an hour of - as he describes them - "topical tunes for hard times", an eclectic mix of records from his own collection that he loves, and talking about the strange days that we find ourselves in.

Tonight you can hear country music from Rank & File, Roy Acuff and Tammy Wynette, blues from Lightnin' Hopkins, Little Milton & KoKo Taylor, gospel from the Ex Seaman's Institute Choir, and classic soul from Marvin Gaye, & The Impressions, alongside classics from Jackson Browne, John Fogerty & Bruce himself.
