In what's become an annual tradition, The Current has switched to an all-Prince format today, the fifth anniversary of the music legend's passing. The Minnesota icon has been the subject of many remembrances and special programs over the years, many of which you'll find featured on The Current's website throughout the day.

In a semi-mystical coincidence, we've also just received word that The Current's podcast Prince: The Story of Sign O' the Times has been nominated for the Webby awards in two categories: Podcasts: Music; and Podcasts: Arts & Culture.

The podcast was produced by The Current in collaboration with The Prince Estate and Warner Records. It was written by Andrea Swensson and produced by Anna Weggel. Technical director was Corey Schreppel; Jay Gabler was the digital producer; radio production director was Derrick Stevens and managing director was David Safar.
