Comedian Jim Norton; Bruce Springsteen Exhibit ON THE SCENE

April 27, 2012

I didn’t see the light of day. Sunup to sunset as I was in edit suite with an amazing creative team pulling this weekend’s ON THE SCENE together.

My interview with comedian Jim Norton airs in this show. Loved interviewing this guy who I did not know before our interview. He’ll talk about anything¬†and he doesn’t hold back about his own life. That’s an interviewer’s dream. Whether you like his comedy or not, his life story of struggle and failure on the road to success is interesting and a lot of people are going to relate to it.

And earlier this month we went to Philadelphia to see the Bruce Springsteen exhibit at the National Constitution Center. But we wanted it to be an authentic Jersey rock experience so musician Tony Amato ¬† joined us. He’s played with Springsteen, knew him since they were teenagers and he took me through the exhibit for the “back story.”

So tune in 8:30 am, 11:30 am or 4:30 PM this Saturday and Sunday on News 12 NJ. Memorable show. And hit me up on twitter JohnBathkeLive.
