Please accept our apologies for the slight distortion from time to time when MC speaks. Who knows, for some of you it might not even be such a bad thing!

Listen, enjoy, and just try to imagine it yourself............what do you think? Reckon it's possible?

We are back with another show, this time we talk MJF 2009.
Listen and enjoy. Prince gave one of his best ever concert performances (in my humble opinion), and we talk about Prince & The Band tearing it up at the MJF 2009. What a setlist, what arrangements, what an atmosphere, what amazing 2 shows in one night!
Hello Everyone, Firstly, RIP to Michael Jackson. We have certainly lost one of the greats.
Secondly, we have recorded a somewhat impromtu show after MJ's passing, discussing his career and including specific commentary related to Prince as well. This convo goes many places, just our thoughts about the King of Pop. He has left the world under tragic circumstances, but one thing is for certain - his legacy will continue on into eternity. Enjoy.
Well it has been almost a month, some of us have been away and others busy but we are now all back and ready to give you all what you have hopefully been patiently waiting for - more Peach & Black Podcast! So, since we have already reviewed the Lotusflow3r project for the most part, here is another episode of the show, where we take you all back to 2004 and the year that Prince came back into the commercial pop scene with a vengeance, Musicology! Enjoy, and we will be back sometime in June or early July with a new episode doing something that we haven't really done thus far - a show not based around reviewing any albums, and instead a heated discussion about a specific aspect of Prince's music and career, coming soon!!!!!!
Here it is - the LotusFlow3r Album Review!
Whoa! Close to 2 hours and 45 minutes of Peach & Black goodness, discussing one of the greatest prince albums in a long time. It gets slightly heated, so strap yourselves in and get ready for another wild ride, our thoughts on Lotusflow3r - the Psychedelic Rock-Pop album of the year! Enjoy!
The Lotusflow3r Impressions Podcast is now online! The discussion focuses on our first impressions of all 3 new Prince albums (including the Bria project), the new website, Leno appearances, live shows and much much more, so download and enjoy!
Very exciting times to be a Prince fan right now, especially because the music is really stacking up and things are moving fast! What's gonna happen next? A tour? A residency? A documentary? Who knows, but one thing is for sure (and I hope most of you will agree) - Prince is on fire with this new material, a milestone in the career of one of the 20th and 21st century's greatest composers and pop artists, IMHO.
With less than a week to go before the LOTUSFLOW3R site opens up and all 3 new albums are released, the Peach & Black Podcast discusses what we all think so far - about the site, the music and our hopes & expectations!
