Besides being the director of the Berklee Music Perception and Cognition Laboratory, and an associate professor at Berklee, Susan Rogers is also the person who worked most closely with the late Prince during quite possibly his most important period artistically. From 1983 to 1988, it was Susan who was on the other side of the glass for Purple Rain, Around the World in a Day, Parade, Sign o' the Times, and The Black Album. Susan was kind enough to talk to KEXP producer, and Minneapolis native, Owen Murphy about her time working with Prince one year after his tragic passing.
