Love this recording.
Pete Seeger was just the most awesome guy.
I like that spotify’s lack of Beatles rights makes it seem like we’re living in some alternate reality where their most popular songs are Misery, Besame Mucho, and Ain’t She Sweet.
When we first approached the representatives of international rock superstar Prince to see if he’d consent to being the inaugural subject of our What’s In Your Fridge series, we knew it was a long shot. We weren’t surprised that we didn’t hear anything back for eight long months. We were surprised when the response wasn’t …
Sadly this series did not continue, but at least we know what weird things are in Prince’s fridge.
