St. Louis Video: Bruce Springsteen Sees a Movie, Gets Home-Cooked Meal


This is one of my favorite YouTube finds, one I didn't get a chance to post before the Springsteen show in August. It's a 1988 local TV clip about the time Bruce Springsteen was in town in 1981, and was spotted at a movie theater. A local family recognized him -- and well, the rest is history. And pretty cool.
