Purple Reign: K102.5 Remembers Prince
"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today..." April 21, 2021 marks the fifth anniversary of the death of Prince. We'll be playing his greatest hits all day.
Prince was a once in a generation superstar. He was otherworldly, his talent immeasurable. His sudden death five years ago was a tremendous loss for music. On April 21, K102.5 will be paying tribute to the purple one and playing his greatest hits all day long. At the top of every hour, listen for a Prince favorite.
Prince made just one concert appearance in Southwest Michigan- a Wings Stadium show in 1993 on the Purple Rain tour. A ticket cost $15(!) to see Vanity 6, The Time and Prince & the Revolution performing:
- Let's Work
- Do Me, Baby
- With You
- Still Waiting
- How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore
- Lady Cab Driver
- Little Red Corvette

A few years after his death, in September of 2019, the Weekly World News reported that Prince was spotted driving an Uber in Kalamazoo. Was it a little red corvette or a purple sedan? As you listen for Prince every hour on K102.5, you know you're going to hear his greatest hits.
