    2. Update – you now have a choice between Prince 24/7 or Prince mixed in with the best funk music! 💜💜💜

  8. Chris, you got me here crying while I’m working with all these sad songs; Condition Of The Heart just broke me down. Please play some upbeat jams 🙂

  9. On this Princegiving I would like 2 thank Funkatopia 4 all da wonderful music u play and da Tuesday night shows by Christopher. 1 question,” The One,” da spoken word will it b played or have I missed it. I don’t know da year it was made.

  10. Every time you play the slowed down version of Alexa De Paris it cracks me up, I didn’t understand it at first…I remember you mentioned this is how you heard it the first time. You’re playing it now and I’m dying LOL

  11. Nice to meet you. Do you know the two Japanese super idols called KinKi Kids? Each of them is doing solo activities, but one of them, one of them, “TSUYOSHI DOMOTO” is doing a solo that centered with FUNK MUSIC. It’s the coolest music! His voice sometimes resonates with the pawful and sometimes. The guitar he plays, the bass, the keyboard is the best! He is cool and cute because he is an idle. I don’t think he’s over 40 years old. It’s really the best so I want the American people to know! Once you hear his voice, you’ll be a prisoner! Please listen to me!

  12. The FUNK MUSIC of the “ENDRECHERI” solo solo by the Japanese super idol “KinKi Kids” is the best! Please listen to me! Thank you for your help.

    1. Hi, Deborah here but I Makayla AKA:pal 💜🤣, purplearmyleader2021. I love what you do for the prince community but can we get what has been playing and what is playing now on the website please 💜
