Who was playing Prince?

Sad news that one of my favourite artists, Prince, has died. When I got the news I turned on the radio on my desk to find a station playing a Prince song. I didn’t have to try too hard to get one but I thought it would be interesting to note down which station was playing what.

On the list below you can see the stations going the extra mile out of hours (at quarter to seven in the evening) and for which stations it didn’t matter (no judgement there, it’s a snapshot, they might have already played something or decided it wasn’t right for them).
