This installment of The Five Count featured a celebration of what would’ve been Prince’s 60th birthday! During the show we proclaimed our disgust for the state of Iowa, discussed our favorite food shelf memories, commemorated the 40th anniversary of Prince’s debut album, and interviewed Prince’s first manager Owen Husney. He’s the author of the new book “Famous People Who’ve Met Me: A Memoir By the Man Who Discovered Prince.” The show was most certainly soft and wet!

This edition of The Five Count was our ninth-annual Princemas celebration! The show featured an exclusive interview with St. Paul Peterson. Paul is best known as a former member the Prince-assembled bands The Time and The Family. In addition to playing with the likes of The Steve Miller Band, Kenny Loggins, and Peter Frampton, he currently plays with his new band fDELUXE.

See them live on Jan. 31!
During the rest of the show we discussed the origins of Princemas, spoke with Mike the Aussie about his love of INXS, and devised a plan to fill Ton’s casket with Coca-Cola and Mentos. Merry Princemas!
We celebrated Princemas Eve for this installment of The Five Count! During the show we played some of our favorite Princemas carols, discussed our favorite venues to see live music, Ton explained which social settings call for banana hammocks, and we spoke with Duane Tudahl, Prince expert and author of the book “Prince and the Purple Rain Era Studio Sessions: 1983 and 1984.” No Prince fan should be without it!
