Join GFM’s DJ Polished Solid, Love Man and Jehan from The Music Snobs as they embark on a lively discussion, analysis, and celebration of Sheila E.’s 1987 eponymous release celebrating 30 years today!

Some of the questions we debate are:

Has Sheila E, the album, held up over the years?

Should Prince, Sheila, and D’Angelo have adopted James Brown’s “Good God” in their live performances?

Do we need Cat (& Sheila & TC Ellis & Tony M) to rap?

Should we do a TC Ellis True Confessions episode?

Are Prince & Sheila E dissing Jerome & Mazarati on Love is a Blue Train?

Does “Wednesday Like A River” sound like a country song or a Wendy & Lisa song?
