Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen is 70 years old today.

Bruce Springsteen was born in New Jersey. After seeing Elvis Presley perform
on The Ed Sullivan Show, he saw himself  growing up like him. His mother saw
his potential and bought him his first guitar for $18 in 1956; that started his
lifetime affair with the guitar. The nickname of ‘Boss’ stuck to him for his task
of collecting the band’s nightly pay and distributing it among the band.

On September 4, 1951, President Harry S. Truman’s opening speech before a conference in San Francisco was broadcast across the nation, marking the
first time a TV program was broadcast from coast to coast. The speech
focused on Truman’s acceptance of a treaty that officially ended America’s
post-
World War II occupation of Japan.

According to the CBS television network, the broadcast, via then-state-of-the-
art microwave technology, was picked up by 87 stations in 47 cities.
