Purple Music : new Prince-focused music column in Minneapolis newspaper

http://spokesman-recorder...or/tkiene/

There is a new Prince-centered music column in Minneapolis urban newspaper, The Spokesman-Recorder (which has been around about ninety years).

Four installments published (online) so far and you would probably have to be local or subscribe, to pick up the actual paper.
A new installment is up every 10-12 days or so, and it looks to be off to a good start, so is worth a look and the support.
==

Purple Music: Musings on the Minneapolis Sound,” a new column by writer Tony Kiene. With this column, Kiene will highlight the lasting legacy of the late Prince, and by extension, the many artists who have played a pivotal role in shaping what’s commonly known as “the Minneapolis Sound.”

You should be able to, using the link to the column's author, which shows each installment, in the original post-
(not sure if outside-USA can access it though).

Updated (so bumping this thread) with a recent two-part interview with Robyne Robinson, the only Minneapolis reporter to ever get an on-screen interview with Prince:
