Bruce Springsteen Remembers The First Time He Heard His Song On The Radio

Bruce Springsteen says he can still remember the first time he heard his music on the radio.

In a UK radio interview, the 71-year-old rocker says he was standing on a street corner in Connecticut when a car pulled up blasting “Spirit of the Night” on the radio.

He said “I wanted to run up to his car and say ‘Hey, that’s me!’ But I didn’t do that. I just stood there in shock and ecstasy.”

What do you think Bruce does when he hears one of his songs on the radio *now*? Does he sing along or change the station?
