In light of  the recent lawsuit and bootleg drama, we ask the question; What If You Never Heard Any Unreleased Prince Music? Would you still be a hardcore fan?

After the recording of this episode Prince said the following regarding unreleased music; "Nobody sues their fans", before adding: "I have some bootlegs of Lianne [La Havas] but I wouldn't sell them. But fans sharing music with each other, that's cool."

The Prince Podcast – First Avenue, Minneapolis March 21st 1987 – Commentary

On this episode of the Prince Podcast we do a fan commentary of the classic Sign O The Time Preview concert  "4 Those Of U On Valium".  This landmark show was the 1st public performance of the Sign O The Times band.  Recorded at First Avenue, Minneapolis March 21st 1987. Prince had the show professional shot. The video was never released to the public and may never see a official release. Over the years fans have acquired this concert and it remains one of the best video testaments of  the Sign O The Times show.  So if you have a copy of this, sit back and listen to the fellas discuss this classic performance.

Bonus talk:1:17:05

Most of times after the podcast recording we get into lengthy discussions about Prince that normally ends up on the cutting room floor.  Michael Dean after a few to many glasses on wine, gives his opinion on Prince and his influences.


We do not condone the selling of bootlegs, nor do we offer unreleased copy-written materials.  Your on your own!

Prince Podcast – Who was Ratchet 1st?


With all this talk about Mylie Cyrus and how she is so over the top. We look back at Prince when he had the nickname 'Rude Boy'.  During the 80's Prince was the poster boy for explicit lyrics. Prince created Vanity 6 and in the 90's introduced some could say, the 1st stripper rapper to the world; Carmen Electra.


Also we talk about Who Stole the Soul, or did Black producers give it away. (Yes we go there)

Janelle Monae - Super talented, but is she over the heads of the masses.

What album today is a cross genre hit?
