Rick McNulty hosts Left of the Dial on Fridays, 7-11 pm. Follow him on Twitter @Rick_Daddy
In my one hundred years in radio, I’ve never seen the sort of support and love for one artist like I did with Prince the day after he died when I hosted Left of the Dial. This was especially heartwarming because his Purple Majesty is one of my all-time favorites.
Below is the playlist which is followed by a four-part stream of the tribute to Prince, broadcast on Friday, April 22, 2016. It will be posted for two weeks and then disappear into the ether, like so many other Prince compositions.
As for the playlist, I tried to find hidden gems or songs that nobody else was playing on the radio (note to KAZI: y’all did a great job over the weekend). In other cases I wanted to play different versions of songs we know and love. In any event, dig in. Prince was the greatest musician of our time — in his own words, there will never be another like him.
