SIRIUS Satellite Radio will break new ground and delight fans of Bruce Springsteen across the U.S. when it launches E Street Radio, its exclusive new commercial-free channel devoted to the music of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, on Tuesday, November 1.
E Street Radio on SIRIUS coincides with the 30th anniversary of the release of Springsteen's album Born To Run, which is being remastered and reissued for release on Columbia Records on November 15.
In addition to rarities such as recordings of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band dating from early 1973, E Street Radio will feature track-by-track album discussions, behind-the-scenes insights, and conversations with E Street Band members and others associated with Springsteen throughout his career.
E Street Radio will also feature an exclusive SIRIUS interview with Bruce Springsteen conducted by Dave Marsh, the author of two books on Springsteen and host of the weekly SIRIUS program Kick Out The Jams With Dave Marsh.
"E Street Radio will offer SIRIUS subscribers a unique perspective on 30 years of socially conscious music, and set the background for even more relevant songs to come in the future," said Scott Greenstein, SIRIUS President of Entertainment and Sports. "It will be the most comprehensive presentation ever of Bruce's music and a true inside look at the work and artistry of an American icon."
E Street Radio is due to run on SIRIUS through January 31, 2006.
