Springsteen on "Spectacle"

As everyone knows by now, I'm a lifelong Bruce Springsteen fan, and one of my current favorite television shows is "Spectacle: Elvis Costello With..." a sort of "Inside the Actors Studio" for the music-obsessed, featuring discussion of the art and craft of songwriting and musicianship, enhanced by live performances.

Sadly, Costello has stated that he won't be continuing the show after the conclusion of this, the second season.

Fortunately, he managed to snag Mr. Springsteen for a marathon four-hour taping that will air as the show's two-part, two-hour series finale, this Wednesday and next, January 20 and 27, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Sundance Channel.

Sundance has made three clips available in advance. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble embedding them, so click here to view them at the "Spectacle" site.
