Episode Date
Episode 2: How to promote a reluctant Rock Star - un-hyping the Boss with Dick Wingate
01:08:11

Dick Wingate was the Publicity Manager for Bruce Springsteen at Columbia Records not long after the hype of Born to Run. In this episode, Dick explains how Bruce turned up at his radio station in 1973 and was literally too shy to speak to promote Greetings from Asbury Park. Fast forward a few years and Dick gets a key job at Columbia Records. He has one condition - he wants to look after The Boss!

His story starts with his first love of music, the iconic gigs of the late 60s and of course - his relationship with Bruce.

Rosalita was on great form today in the Cafe and served up Dick's favourite drink and sandwich. Enjoy the episode and don't forget to follow us and tell your fellow E Streeters. You can also join our Facebook group too for more up to date news.
