As someone who was indifferent to Prince back in the day, I found the first episode of this podcast very interesting and informative. I"d never heard the story about the Rolling Stones' fans throwing bottles and rotten food at him and his band...what a horror. People can be so vile. The racial issue underlying this mess is not glossed over, but it's not turned into a big political thing either. At some point towards the end of the episode I realized I was hearing over and over again about the new boxed set with a ton of new songs and versions that we haven't heard before, and I realized this podcast was constructed around its release. In other words, it's a commercial. Fortunately, it's not a cheesy commercial, it actually has substance. I will keep listening to the next episodes and see if it holds my interest. One downside is that the woman narrating the story has a sing-songy, annoying voice that makes me want to tell her to tone it down or stop talking. She's enthusiastic, but it would have been good if someone had given her a few lessons on dialing it back a few notches. Oh well, nobody's perfect. At least she doesn't have a vocal fry, which is way, way worse.
