Weekdays 2:00pm–7:00pm

18. Bruce Springsteen

Throughout the month of February, 102.9 WMGK will count down the 20 greatest classic rock singers decided by our listener vote. 

We’ll dedicate daily blocks to one singer who’s made the list every weekday throughout the month.

MGK will celebrate Bruce Springsteen on Friday, Feb. 3. 

Springsteen grew up in Freehold, New Jersey before gradually making a name for himself in Asbury Park and the surrounding area in North Jersey. He built a reputation as a hero of the common man with semi-autobiographical lyrics written to provide hope an inspiration to his audiences.

“The Boss” has released 21 studio albums, and the legendary E. Street Band has followed him through decades of tours.

His affinity for the Jersey Shore has helped his popularity grow locally. 

His work has earned him the #18 spot on the list in 2023.
