MinneCulture Podcast, Ep. 24: The Purple One from KFAI
For our Season 3 finale, stories about the late, great Prince Rogers Nelson. We'll hear from the guy credited with "discovering" Prince, what it was like to get phone calls from Prince at 3 a.m., and we take of tour of "Purple Places" that mark Prince's roots in North Minneapolis. This episode was produced by KFAI’s Nancy Rosenbaum

Prince and the Technician by the Kitchen Sisters
In 1983 Prince hired LA sound technician, Susan Rogers, one of the few women in the industry, to move to Minneapolis and help upgrade his home recording studio as he began work on the album and the movie Purple Rain. Susan, a trained technician with no sound engineering experience became the engineer of all that Prince recorded for the next four years. We'll hear what it was like to work with Prince for 24 hours, 36 hours, 96 hours at a stretch, as he layered and perfected his hot, funky sound.

Not So Purple Rain by Xan Holston

Thirty years after "Purple Rain," African musicians reimagined the 1984 film with local music and flair. Titled “Rain the Color Blue with a Little Red In It," the Tuareg movie has captured the imagination of cinephiles in Prince's hometown of Minneapolis at the Sound Unseen film festival.
