LA Radio Studio: Dave Marsh on Springsteen’s ‘The Rising’ Part 3

Part 3 of 3

Dave Marsh on Bruce Springsteen 'The Rising'
The Rising

When Bruce Springsteen’s “The Rising” came out, everyone knew it was primarily about the events of 9/11/2001, but as any Springsteen fan knows, it’s never “just about” a subject in any of Bruce’s music.  Radio veteran Mike Stark (KNAC, KLOS, KABC) connects with Springsteen biographer, Dave Marsh, to do a track-by-track analysis of the CD, getting the ultimate fan’s view of the work – and more. 

The LA Radio Studio, in association with Spin Bridge, presents a special version of “The Rising”, edited from a very long session with Mike Stark and Dave Marsh shortly after the album was released, which starts out with an explicitly 9/11 “remix” of the title track.  What follows the “remix” is pure Dave Marsh as he squeezes everything out of this landmark CD.

  1. Beautifully done, thank you. I just listened to all three segments and found it to be a fitting tribute for the day. Marsh’s commentary was spot on and the editing work was handled in such a manner that the songs came through intact – nice job!
