Bruce Springsteen doesn’t just sing ”57 channels and nothing on” — he does something about it. For the first time, he’s allowing one of his songs (”Human Touch”) to be used in a TV movie: The Switch about a man’s life after his near-fatal motorcycle crash. ”It was a 100-to-1 shot,” says director Bobby Roth. It didn’t hurt that Roth used to live next door to Bruce in Hollywood.
