The Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music at Monmouth University will present two very special programs this Thanksgiving season.
First is a special edition of What’s Up on E Street? featuring music historian Bob Santelli interviewing Thom Zimny, long-time Springsteen videographer and producer of “Letter to You,” the documentary film about the making of the new Springsteen album of the same name. The episode goes live on Tuesday, Nov. 17 at 10 a.m.
Following soon after, a special Soundstage interview featuring Arlo Guthrie talking with Santelli about the making of “Alice’s Restaurant,” will launch on Thursday, Nov. 19 at 10 a.m. Now regarded as a Thanksgiving tradition, “Alice’s Restaurant” was first recorded in 1967.
Both programs can be accessed on the Bruce Springsteen Archives & Center for American Music website or via the Springsteen Archives’ Facebook page.
What’s Up on E Street? is a new series that highlights the individual members of the band and how they are dealing with the global COVID-19 pandemic. Previous interviews include other E Street Band members Nils Lofgren, Roy Bittan, Max Weinberg, Garry Tallent, and Steven VanZandt.
Soundstage, a monthly online series presented by the Springsteen Archives, explores new works, trends, and contemporary issues in American music. Previous artists appearing on Soundstage include Lofgren, Tallent and the Delevantes, David Sancious, and Tom Morello.
