Voltage Factory Playlist 21 APR 16

What an absolutely devastating day yesterday was as the world received the news that Prince had been found dead at Paisley Park. He was just 57 years old. So, so many thoughts on this tragedy, the loss of one of the greatest musicians ever known.

Here’s a piece I did for The Daily Times about it.

No matter what I had planned for last night’s edition of The Voltage Factory on VanyaRadio went out the window immediately. It was time to pay tribute to a great one – perhaps the greatest. The celebration of Prince’s music was cathartic and the response was incredibly positive.

There’s an opportunity to hear it again as the Voltage Factory will repeat tonight at 8:00pm EST and rebroadcast at its normally scheduled time Monday at 10:00pm EST.

The playlist is below after the jump.
