All Prince, all day.

To honor the legendary musician who was found dead in his home today, Austin radio station 96.3 RnB has said it will play wall-to-wall Prince tunes starting this afternoon.

The station flipped the switch just after noon, playing “The Beautiful Ones,” “Purple Rain,” “I Would Die 4 U” and “1999.”

Tune to 96.3 FM to check out the on-air tribute, or stream online at 963rnb.com.
