Shelby J. took over North Carolina radio again for "The Shelby J. Takeover Round 3" from the campus of N.C. A &T State University.
Shelby mixed some Steely Dan along with Toby Mac, D'Angelo, The Eagles, Cameo, and the new joint by Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu.
Shelby also interviewed Sidra Smith, producer of the new documentary "Free Angela & All Political Prisoners".
Shelby is a natural on radio and TV and we will not be surprised if she gets contacted to do more takeovers and perhaps her own show!
Check out the 2 hour show above and show Shelby J. some LOVE.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Q.U.E.E.N. Honey Bee....
Last night on the PRINCE Spreecast with DrFunkenberry & Seth Everett, a 20 year old fan from Texas named Jesse Jenkins, who has never seen his favorite performer PRINCE live before, and lives an hour from where the SXSW Festival was being held, was given a gift he was not expecting!
Jesse was hoping to see PRINCE at the SXSW Festival when it was announced that PRINCE would be playing. The $800 weekly pass and the VIP pass of $1,595 were really out of Jenkins budget. Samsung, who is hosting the party is giving away 250 tickets for people in Austin who have the Samsung Galaxy SII & SIII. Jesse unfortunately, does not have the Galaxy and did not have the $700 to purchase one.
Cue PRINCE & The NPG & 3rdEyeGirl to the rescue. Drfunkenberry announced during last night's show that he will be seeing PRINCE live this Saturday at SXSW courtesy of PRINCE & the crew!
Jesse's reaction was priceless. We are so happy for him we cannot even tell you. Check out him talking about not being able to go around the 56 minute mark and his reaction around the 58 minute mark! Priceless!
It felt great to play the role of Ellen and be able to surprise Jesse like that.
When we contacted Jesse later that night, he had this to say;
I can hardly get any sleep Doc! I'm just so amazed! I could not even expect this and the fact that it's at my front door..WOW! Such an amazing reality!
I want to thank PRINCE, The NPG, & 3rd Eye Girl for making it happen and allowing us to do it live on the show to catch Jesse's reaction!-DocFB
Diagnosis: When U have no expectations and no sense of entitlement, U will be rewarded
Another year, another PRINCE is headlining the Glastonbury Festival Story. Well....I'm hear to tell U.....and I'm sorry if some of you were fooled but...it is NOT happening.
All the rumors you heard on Twitter, all the articles you read online, that person on Facebook who says he knows the guy who knows the guy who puts new rocks in at Paisley Park every year and says it is happening, it is not.
When we have anything official to report or anything cool, we will let U know. If U dig rumors and being misled, by all means, keep feeding the gorillas at the zoo.
Make sure to tune in tomorrow for the PRINCE Spreecast for the latest news & more.
Just to be clear:
PRINCE is NOT headlining Glastonbury.
PRINCE is NOT playing Glastonbury.
Diagnosis: Also, PRINCE is NOT appearing in Doonesbury.
Andy Allo will be performing at South by Southwest on March 16th! She will be playing at Bar 96 at 10 P.M. that night! While we were writing this, Andy was playing hangman hinting at playing SXSW.

We are VERY excited for the talented Miss Allo and hoping this leads to a spring tour with her band.

Rock it Andy!-DocFB

Diagnosis: "Boyfriend" and "That Girl Thang".....? Hmm...
Last night on the PRINCE spreecast DrFunkenberry hosts with Seth Everett, we talked about several news items that will be happening with PRINCE.
Here is an outline of the news discussed:
#1. That there will be a Jazz Fest Announcement coming...which has now happened as PRINCE will be performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival.
#2 The Smuk Fest. PRINCE agreed to play if they changes his night's name to "The Beautiful Experience"....
#3 The NPG drummer position is currently being occupied by Ronald Bruner Jr. aka RBJ, whose 2nd of 3 callbacks happens this week. After the 3rd, his position will then be determined. To join this band, there are several rigorous initiations that take place...the least of which is a personality analysis.
#4 Hannah Ford, Donna Grantis, & Ida Nielson are in the studio everyday recording new material with PRINCE. He is the primary songwriter but not the primary guitarist. PRINCE is every day gaining more confidence in Donna's talent and actually lets her take a bulk of the solos on the project. They have recorded about 14 songs and "Live Out Loud" will be released as soon as the promotional clip for it is finished. Check 3rdEyeGirl.com soon for that.
#5 Speaking of which: There still is no word as to the true identity of 3rd Eye Girl. It seems to be growing though. Photographers, web site designers, and film editors have been hired to work on several unnamed projects. There is work going on at The Park 24/7....that's for sure.
#6 PRINCE & his team have been in back and forth talks with the Jimmy Fallon show. PRINCE definitely wants to be on the week of the Carnegie Hall Tribute. (3113 cough cough 3113)
#7 FDeluxe sans Jellybean Johnson has been added to the line up for the Tribute.
