Chicago-based singer/multi-instrumentalist Nora O'Connor has toured and recorded with the Decemberists, Neko Case, The New Pornographers and many more. This week she joins TRGMH to discuss a record/artist that never ceases to get her high: 'Parade' by Prince and The Revolution. His eighth studio album was the soundtrack to the 1986 film he directed and starred in, Under The Cherry Moon - and the final album where The Revolution is billed - and is yet another stunning example of Prince's place as a superior melodist, arranger, and player, as well as a celebration of his endless creativity.
