Rock N Roll Librarian Reads: Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen
Shelley and Christian dive into Bruce's autobiography, 'Born to Run'. In 2009, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band performed at the Super Bowl’s halftime show. The experience was so exhilarating that Bruce decided to write about it. That’s how this extraordinary autobiography began. Over the past seven years, Bruce Springsteen has privately devoted himself to writing the story of his life, bringing to these pages the same honesty, humor, and originality found in his songs. He describes growing up Catholic in Freehold, New Jersey, amid the poetry, danger, and darkness that fueled his imagination, leading up to the moment he refers to as “The Big Bang”: seeing Elvis Presley’s debut onThe Ed Sullivan Show. He vividly recounts his relentless drive to become a musician, his early days as a bar band king in Asbury Park, and the rise of the E Street Band. With disarming candor, he also tells for the first time the story of the personal struggles that inspired his best work, and shows us why the song “Born to Run” reveals more than we previously realized. Born to Runwill be revelatory for anyone who has ever enjoyed Bruce Springsteen, but this book is much more than a legendary rock star’s memoir. This is a book for workers and dreamers, parents and children, lovers and loners, artists, freaks, or anyone who has ever wanted to be baptized in the holy river of rock and roll. Rarely has a performer told his own story with such force and sweep. Like many of his songs (“Thunder Road,” “Badlands,” “Darkness on the Edge of Town,” “The River,” “Born in the U.S.A,” “The Rising,” and “The Ghost of Tom Joad,” to name just a few), Bruce Springsteen’s autobiography is written with the lyricism of a singular songwriter and the wisdom of a man who has thought deeply about his experiences.
Deeper Digs in Rock: No Cameras Allowed with Julian David Stone
At the Aftermaster studios in Hollywood, The Rock N Roll Archaeologists sits down with ex-outlaw photographer, Julian David Stone. What’s an “outlaw photographer”? It used to be, anyone with a camera at rock n roll shows needed to be vetted and credentialed by the band and promoters. Every ticket would be printed with, “No Cameras Allowed”. And so Julian, unvetted and uncredentialed, became an outlaw from 1981-1987.

We all know her, we all love her and there is no one else like her. Who could we possibly be talking about? That’s right,Dolly Parton! Today Chanty presents the story of Dolly Parton, the early years. With the help of Dolly’s book “Dolly: My Life and Other Unfinished Business”, you can hear the story of how Dolly got to be the super star she is today. A small town girl from the smoky mountains of East Tennessee, Dolly was one of twelve children born in a home no bigger than a shack.

A story of faith, believing in yourself and dreaming big, this is a fun an inspirational episode that might have you saying “I didn’t know that!” We also cover Dolly’s longtime marriage to Carl Thomas Dean, a handsome young man she met after moving to Nashville.
