Prince, R.I.P.

A mixtape that was in heavy rotation on my boom box in Flint in the early eighties: Prince, Go-Go's, Bob Marley, which provided a more uplifting break from The Smiths, Joy Division and The The.

  1. That is beautiful Gordie! Did you have the dual cassette decks so that you could record off of one of them, or did you just have to record off the radio like I had to?


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
