The purple rain keeps falling in Minneapolis following the passing last week of the legendary Prince and SynthWaves pays a very special tribute. The show leads in with a 12" Extended version of "I Would Die for You" (Prince 1984) followed by an exclusive forward by Jan Hammer (Miami Vice Original Score, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Jeff Beck) .
Tonight on these very airwaves you’ll be treated to a cornucopia of curvaceous charm when we hear from the likes of the Honey Dreamers, Van McCoy, Axel Stordahl, Ronnie Foster, and our Radio-Active Robot. I doubt there are many 'music services' out there that would play that line up in one sitting. Have at it. (557)
The "Ooh" – Oh Yeah, Blue Beat Baby! We launch this week with both sides of the only record in existence by Brigitte Bond & the Blue Beats, a 7" 45 on… wait for it… Blue Beat! Also a pair of hat tricks (shoulda done 3!)… 3 Bobs (Mr. Walls, Mr. Andy and Mr. Marley) and 3 Ska Beat 45s. And I won't even charge you the 3 bob… how much is that in smackeroonies, anyway?
