“Are you afraid of bats? Well, I ain’t afraid of…” If you are a hardcore Prince fan, you know the rest, but, if you don’t, listen to me and Jerome Benton as we discuss my favorite film of all time, Prince’s Under The Cherry Moon (UTCM), on Grown Folks Music’s inaugural Behind The Film podcast, to distinguish when we speak to members of the Purple kingdom from our usual Inside The Album podcasts.
I had the honor & privilege to discuss UTCM with Tricky live and in the “real” studio, which since April 2016, has been my #2 bucket list item. Before that my #2 was witnessing Prince in the studio work his magic.
I must give MASSIVE thanks to Jill Monroe for making this dream a reality. I never thought in a million years that I would get to interview Jerome IN PERSON at my job (Thank you, Luke DuBois).
I will never forget that day for as long as I live! Thank you, Jerome Benton, for the many, many decades of joy! We 💜 you!
