Remembering Prince
Those of you who have been in the WBAR studio know how much we love Prince. We were deeply saddened to hear of his passing today. Here is a reflection on his legendary career by WBAR alum, Miguel Gallego: If there were a way of measuring talent per mass, Prince, being short, would probably be among the most dense-with-talent people to have danced the Earth. He was so singular in his vision and so unrelenting in the pursuit of his art—even at the expense of his relationship with others. His musical breadth was enormous. He never cared about boundaries. On the onset of the MTV era, artists like him and Michael Jackson helped bust through the unspoken racial discrimination in their programming. He was omnivorous in his eclecticism—he combined R&B with new wave and punk with funk like it was nothing. It didn’t matter to him whether or not he made sense to anybody else. He could be vulnerable and heartbreaking one moment and a kinky little freak the next. He could be brashly political and then slapstick funny on the following track. Prince seemed to locate the heart of resistance to the oppressiveness of living in the world we do through being illegible. It’s from the incommensurable—the ineffable—that the divine springs. On “I Would Die 4 U,” he declares himself a messiah, a dove, conscious, and love itself. Not a woman, not a man—something that you’ll never understand.
gettin sentimental in the WBAR studio
though the WBAR studio sometimes feels a little roachy, smoky, and dusty, it is the place where so much of the magic of WBAR happens and i am eternally grateful to have had 6 semesters of special moments down in the basement of reid hall. here are a few: ***crushed velvet, fall 2013*** when i felt horrible during my xmas show and had to run upstairs and throw up in the reid 2 bathroom and i missed mariah carey's YOUUUUUUUUU in "all i want for christmas is you" :( ***crushed velvet, spring 2014*** when i didn't realize my playlist was on shuffle and i accidentally played the same simon & garfunkel song 3 times :/ ***us weekly, fall 2015*** when me and my co-dj amelia played all of third eye blind's self-titled and sang along with the mics turned all the way up :) ***best in show, spring 2015*** when i dedicated a show to my childhood dog menley and played all my mom's favorite songs :,) this is a very tiny taste of all the wonderful and terrible times i have had in the wbar studio. all of these moments have been or will one day be lost to internet wasteland but the memories will exist forever in my heart and in the walls of ye olde WBAR studio <33333 -alex
