Famous people can come from anywhere but when you come from Minnesota, you’re very aware that you come from not only the land of 10,000 lakes, but also the land of the funkiest rock star the world has ever seen, also known as Prince, this episode is both a tribute and a memorial to him… he left us too soon ...on April 21st, 2016 and his birthday is June 7th.
We have a special episode today featuring two stories about Prince and you’ll be happy to hear that one of our favorite guests, Shanti Hendricks is back and here to tell one of them.
If you don’t know Shanti, she was recently featured on two episodes of our show, where she shared her crazy, behind-the-scene stories of her time as a Fear Factor contestant. Be sure to listen to those two episodes, which aired early April 2019, after you finish this episode.
In today’s story, our Psycho Fear Factor Finalist shares how she met Prince and what happened when they hung out. Yes, you heard me correctly, Shanti met and hung out with Prince! And, more than once! You’re going to want to hear this story!
I share this first story with my sister Jenny, and it also would have been fun to reminisce about this one with our sister Kari, who was and is a mega Prince fan and even worked at his Minneapolis club, Glam Slam, back in the day. She says she met Prince and he was a nice guy.
My story takes place in the mid 80’s when both myself and Prince were just getting started… I was a small-town girl who had her first job in the big city and from my office, I could literally hear the doves cry...
Today’s episode includes swear words.
