It's Your Birthday-.At least That's How The Song Goes-Check Out Our Special Afronerd Radio Prince B-Day Show Sun at 7pm ET-Party Like It's 2009!

Admittedly this will be a self indulgent broadcast but Prince is one of my favorite musicians and it is his Birthday.....so why not pay homage? As the late Heath Ledger replied in his portrayal of the Joker-why so serious? So our answer to Mr. Ledger's question is to air this special show for music and Prince supporters alike. So join this Sunday at 7pm (ET) join Mr. Starks and I along with special guests Michael Dean (of Freedom Train Online) and filmmaker, Raymond Gayle (Electric Purgatory) as we wax about His Royal Badness, his associates and musical legacy. Feel free to call in with your comments/questions at: 646-915-9620 or via email/IM-afronerdradio@yahoo.com.

And as an aside, check out Mr. Gayle's handiwork in its entirety, courtesy of Youtube. Hopefully, Gayle's aforementioned piece, Electric Purgatory will spur further debate on the issue of expanding the landscape of Black music:
