Thank god for The Current

The Current is playing all Prince music today and the past hour they've been focusing on his more guitar heavy songs across his entire career not just the WB years. They're playing songs we'd never hear on a typical classic rock station. Love it. cool

As soon as I get out of this stinkin' meeting at work, I'm there!

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

I can't remember the last time I heard Dreamer on the radio (other than when The Current does an A to Z of his music). So much better than hearing the recycled same stuff over and over again on classic rock stations.

Awesome. He deserves it.
They're playing lots of Prince on the radio here today but it's good to have some more serious fan-based stuff out there, whew.

Interviewing Donna Grantis right now. cool

Donna said she moved to Uptown (Minneapolis) about 6 months ago. I'm assuming that's because Trevor is involved in the PP museum.

I want to contact them to thank them, its that great. I have been listening at work now at home. A brilliant playlist of song after song, just how diverse is Princes music. We should show our appreciation some how.

Yep they're really doing him justice today. Not like iHeart stations that if they play anything at all would only be from 1999 or Purple Rain or maybe Kiss.

They just said that Tony M was on a panel today explaining about how Prince's opinion on rap / hip-hop changed from when he recorded Dead On It to when he formed the NPG. He said Public Enemy's music was the critical driver of what caused him to respect the art form (he also mentioned ATCQ, though given the timing, I would assume that was more of a group that he listened to later). Interesting.

I tell you what, that is how it should be.
I feel all alone out here (now CA resident) today- except for the org.
Thank you-----
I can't explain to anyone else what it was like to grow up Mpls
'with' Prince.

i've been listening all afternoon -- an terrific cross-section of songs mostly from the 1980 - 1995 period (a couple newer things thrown in too).

I can't believe it's been a year. I can't believe it's been 39 years.

Having the Revolution commenting together is the icing on the cake, love it.

The Current have nailed this celebration.
