Blugold Radio's grand opening Sept. 14-15 to feature guitars from Prince's collection


You might call it a grand opening fit for a king, or more appropriately, a Prince.

Blugold Radio, located a guitar string away from McIntyre Library, will hold a special grand opening celebration Sept. 14-15 that will give UW-Eau Claire students, faculty, staff and the public the chance to admire two guitars from the collection of the late superstar Prince.

It’s not often you get the chance to get up close and personal with a piece of rock 'n' roll history, but thanks to a helping hand from Chancellor James Schmidt, the guitars from Prince’s personal collection will be on display for Blugolds to enjoy.

In addition, “Partyup,” a Prince Tribute concert featuring a host of talented local musicians, will be held at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 15 in Schofield Auditorium.

You can read all about Blugold Radio’s grand opening here. Tickets for the tribute concert, which are $10 for the public and $5 for students, are available through the UW-Eau Claire Service Center and BlugoldRadio.org.
