We’re both huge Prince fans, and if you’re a regular listener, you know how often his name and work come up on this podcast. Needless to say, we’re gutted, and needed to talk about it when we heard of Prince’s passing. We hope you’ll enjoy listening to this special edition of The GAR! Podcast, and remembering with us. Rest in peace, Prince.

And this is Ray’s favorite version of It’s Gonna Be A Beautiful Night:
