Minnesota’s Own “Little” Prince Discovered In TV Station Archives


I don’t know why I love this story so much… it’s probably because I am a huge Prince fan!  Oh, and his birth date is June 7th and mine is June 8th, so I feel like we Geminis get each other on some level…even though the star had ZERO clue who I was… EVERYONE knew who HE was.  Today, of course, his legend lives on in his music… and NOW in some TV footage from the 1970 Minneapolis Teacher’s Strike where an 11-year old Prince was interviewed by a WCCO-TV reporter where the young boy briefly expresses his support for the teachers.

If you have not seen this video, treat yourself to a trip down Memory Lane.
