Info & Setlist | Venue

Bruce’s second known radio show, but this one is unusual because it took place at Richmond’s Alpha Sound Studios (or Alpha Audio), not at the station itself. It was broadcast live by WGOE-AM 1590 via a remote link. In addition to the DJ the small audience heard in the studio included Mike Appel, Jim Cretecos, Albee Tellone and David Sancious (who had yet to join the band but who was employed at the studio at the time). Albee Tellone has recently commented that he does not believe he was in the audience, but setting up the equipment for the evening show at Richmond Coliseum. The above-mentioned six-song setlist is the complete performance. This performance (which features all the band in cameos except for Vini Lopez) is highlighted by what many consider the definitive available version of "You Mean So Much To Me". During the show a fan calls into the radio station and requests Bruce’s old Steel Mill chestnut "Resurrection" but Bruce doesn’t play it. Interestingly as Bruce takes his seat to perform a song solo at the piano one of the entourage can be heard saying "Janey?", apparently thinking Bruce was going to perform the recently composed "Janey Needs A Shooter" to which Bruce replies "no" and instead delivers a fine version of his then-new "New York Song".
