Author Ryan White talks Springsteen album by album

This year, believe it or not, marks the 30th anniversary of Born in the U.S.A. which was first released in June of 1984. From the moment Bruce Springsteen first delivered Greetings from Asbury Park in 1973 to Born to Run to Wrecking Ball and this year’s High Hopes, Springsteen and his E Street Band have been creating new and memorable music.

Renowned for his passionate songwriting, galvanizing live shows, and political activism, this iconic rocker shows no signs of slowing down.

Local author and former Oregonian writer Ryan White joins me to talk about his beautiful new coffee table book, Bruce Springsteen: Album By Album.
