This is a show that will explore the life story of our favorite cultural items and ask what are the things we love and why do we love them and who are the major influencers who led these things to cultural prominence. In episode one, we take a look at PRINCE. Why did everyone fall in love with Prince in 1984? Purple Rain was the #1 album and the #1 movie. Before that year Prince had never sold more than 2 million albums. In 1984 he sold 16 million. What made the difference? We’ll talk to a slew of his friends and bandmates—including his guitarist Dez Dickerson, his saxophonist Eric Leeds, his engineer Susan Rogers, and singer Susannah Melvoin, the first woman he got engaged to. She tells the story of how he proposed. Also, an amazing story about Prince, Elizabeth Taylor, and a courageous audio technician from Quincy, Massachusetts.
