Born to Run
by Bruce Springsteen
(20 plays) | (0 fans)

Hi John and team, I remember that walk to the new studio five years ago. I wasn't a consistent listener at that point, but I had the car (which was rare in 2015), and remember thinking, "Who are these Muppets?" during the walk from one studio to the other. On this day three years later, I gave birth to our son after seven years of infertility -- could not think of a better son for our sweet boy's second birthday than Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." Thanks for continuing to show up. Kristin

Family Farm

"The songs on OPEN DOOR POLICY are about power, wealth, & mental health. They're about technology, occupation, consumerism, freedom, fandom and escape. And although the album was written and recorded in 2019, the themes of this record seem to be underscored and highlighted by this year of virus and quarantine." - https://theholdsteady.net/

From the Motherless Brooklyn soundtrack, Daily Battles by Wynton Marsalis, please? KEXP and that movie have influenced me, finally, to begin to appreciate jazz. Cheryl in New Bedford, MA
