We look back at the life and music of Prince- expect to hear all of his classic hits, as well as Prince covers, and a few songs you may not have known he wrote. We also play a brand new Prince track and discuss his massive vault of unreleased music which allegedly has thousands of unheard songs.

Prince's newest album from the vault is called Welcome 2 America and will be available on July 30th. It's "a powerful creative statement that documents Prince's concerns, hopes and visions for a shifting society, presciently foreshadowing an era of political division, disinformation and a renewed fight for racial justice."
