Philadelphia’s WXPN celebrates Bruce Springsteen’s 60th birthday today with special programming and a tribute concert originating from World Cafe Live, its partner performance venue. Beginning at 10 a.m., Helen Leicht hosts four hours of wall-to-wall Springsteen, and she’s taking requests for Bruce classics and covers here. Leicht also hosts tonight’s event, The Boss’ Birthday Bash, which will feature the Phill-E Street Band performing Springsteen’s seminal 1975 release Born to Run cover to cover. The concert will be broadcast and webcast live from 7:30-10. And for those Bruce fans who just can’t get enough, WXPN has produced a webstream of Springsteen songs covered by Local XPN Artists.
