Bruce Springsteen, a supporter of President Obama , will appear in the Parma, OH area and Ames, IA on Thursday, October 18. The appearances will be free and open to the public.

The Boss has been a long-time advocate of Democratic politics.  In 2008, just prior to the election, he got a crowd of 80,000 people pumped up at an Obama event in Cleveland. In 2004, Springsteen participated in a rally for Senator John Kerry.

From his website: “Bruce Springsteen’s values echo what the President and Vice President stand for: hard work, fairness, integrity,” said Jim Messina, Obama-Biden campaign manager. “His appearances will help with our get out the vote effort in these critical swing states and we are thrilled with his ongoing support.”

President Bill Clinton will also join Bruce for his appearance in Ohio.

Pat Ferrise grew up loving ”the punk rock” and “new wave.” His years at one of the nation’s top college radio stations ultimately led him to a 15-year run as music director of alternative music icon WHFS Washington/Baltimore. Rolling Stone magazine named him of the most influential programmers of the 90s. He’s recorded two albums under the moniker Trampoline for the now defunct SpinArt label. He lives in Baltimore and takes no credit for writing this bio.
