ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The latest planned tribute to Prince is a musical one -- being organized by a Minnesota radio station. The Minnesota Public Radio station is inviting stations around the country to play Prince's hit "Nothing Compares 2 U" this afternoon at 5:07 p.m., Central time. Why? "Nothing Compares 2 U" contains the lyric "7 hours and 13 days" -- and 5:07 p.m. would mark that length of time since Prince died. So far, stations in Seattle, Philadelphia, New York and Austin, Texas are among those that have signed on for the tribute.
MINNETONKA, Minn. (AP) -- Larry Graham says there's no telling what might be left in Prince's musical vaults. Graham says over the years, he and other band members had recorded a lot more material with Prince than ever made it onto a single or album. Trouble is, Graham says, he has no idea what Prince did with those recordings. He says he doesn't know what stuff Prince left and what he got rid of. Graham added that while people knew Prince as a musician, in his later life he got his biggest joy from sharing the Bible with others as one of Jehovah's Witnesses.

UNDATED (AP) -- Celebrities have fans. But some celebrities are fans of other famous people. Dwayne Wade found that out when he heard that Prince described Wade as his favorite basketball player. The Miami Heat guard tells Twitter he had "all kinds of emotions" after hearing that. He says hearing Prince say he was his favorite, "was an ultimate compliment."
NEW YORK (AP) -- It isn't just fans wondering what happened to cause Prince to die so suddenly. One of the musician's former assistants says she is still trying to figure out how someone so healthy could have died. Mariah Brown says she never saw Prince take drugs while she worked for him and that the musician had "more energy" than she did and most people she knew. Prince was found dead at his home two weeks ago. Toxicology reports from his autopsy won't be available for a while. But a law enforcement official has told the AP investigators are looking into whether Prince died from an overdose.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Since Tupac Shakur was shot in 1996, some have insisting there was a conspiracy and that the rap icon was alive and well. Apparently, one of those people was not Tupac's mom, Afeni (ah-FEE'-nee) Shakur, who died Monday. In a 2005 interview, she dismissed fans wrapped up in conspiracy theories, saying she "decided to deal with the living." She said she needed to focus on what she needed to do in life, adding: "it ain't trying to figure out who killed Tupac." For the last two decades of her life, Afeni Shakur also focused on maintaining her son's legacy and managing his music catalog. She was 69.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It was a good night for the ladies on "The Voice." All made it through last night, staying out of this week's bottom two. Nick Hagelin from Team Xtina and Team Pharrell's Daniel Passino had to battle it out for the instant Twitter save. Daniel seemed to know what was in store as he smiled and patted Nick on the shoulder for encouragement. It was Daniel who came up short when the results were announced. That leaves Team Pharrell with just a single singer in the Top 9. Team Xtina and Team Blake have three apiece. Team Adam has two artists still in the competition.

CHICAGO (AP) -- The struggle continues over the effort by "Star Wars" creator George Lucas to build a lakefront museum in Chicago. Opponents of the project say they aren't crazy about an alternate site offered for the project. The city is considering putting the $400 million art museum where a convention complex now stands. While the Friends of the Parks group says it won't reject the new site out of hand, they don't feel it should be along the lakefront at all.
NEW YORK (AP) -- We can't be sure how their kids turn out, if they have any. But it's a safe bet they could be thespians with an eye for fashion -- and a mean curveball. Actress Kate Upton has announced that she's engaged to star baseball pitcher Justin Verlander. Upton showed off her engagement rock on the red carpet in New York Monday night, saying Verlander made the pitch for her hand in marriage just before the baseball season started -- and she's glad to be able to talk about it now.
NEW YORK (AP) -- "The Big Bang Theory" was the comedy winner in TV last week. And like the front-runners in the presidential sweepstakes lately, the victory was decisive. Nielsen reports the CBS sitcom was seen by 14.1 million last Thursday, by far the nation's most-watched program. Overall, the network was the week's leader when it came to viewership.

Today in History
Today is Saturday, March 5, the 65th day of 2016. There are 301 days left in the year.
Today's Highlight in History:
On March 5, 1946, Winston Churchill delivered his "Iron Curtain" speech at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, in which he said: "From Stettin in the Baltic, to Trieste in the Adriatic, an `iron curtain' has descended across the continent, allowing police governments to rule Eastern Europe."
On this date:
In 1766, Antonio de Ulloa arrived in New Orleans to assume his duties as the first Spanish governor of the Louisiana Territory, where he encountered resistance from the French residents.
In 1770, the Boston Massacre took place as British soldiers who'd been taunted by a crowd of colonists opened fire, killing five people.
In 1868, the U.S. Senate was organized into a Court of Impeachment to decide charges against President Andrew Johnson, who was later acquitted.
In 1933, in German parliamentary elections, the Nazi Party won 44 percent of the vote; the Nazis joined with a conservative nationalist party to gain a slender majority in the Reichstag.
In 1953, Soviet dictator Josef Stalin died after three decades in power. Composer Sergei Prokofiev died in Moscow at age 61.
In 1963, country music performers Patsy Cline, Cowboy Copas and Hawkshaw Hawkins died in the crash of their plane, a Piper Comanche, near Camden, Tennessee, along with pilot Randy Hughes (Cline's manager).
In 1966, BOAC Flight 911, a Boeing 707, crashed into Japan's Mount Fuji after breaking up in severe turbulence; all 124 people on board were killed. (Most of the passengers were executives and dealers of the Thermo King Corp. of Bloomington, Minnesota, as well as some of their spouses.)

In 1986, in Lebanon, Islamic Jihad issued a statement saying it had "executed" French hostage Michel Seurat, who had been abducted almost a year earlier. (Other hostages who were later freed said Seurat had died of either hepatitis or cancer.)
In 1994, a jury in Pensacola, Florida, convicted anti-abortion activist Michael F. Griffin of first-degree murder in the shooting death of Dr. David Gunn; Griffin was immediately sentenced to life in prison.
Ten years ago: AT&T announced it was buying BellSouth Corp., a big step toward resurrecting the old Ma Bell telephone system. "Crash" won the Best Picture Academy Award in an upset over "Brokeback Mountain"; Philip Seymour Hoffman won Best Actor for "Capote" and Reese Witherspoon won Best Actress for "Walk the Line."
Five years ago: Egyptians turned their anger toward ousted President Hosni Mubarak's internal security apparatus, storming the agency's main headquarters and other offices. Alberto Granado, 88, who'd accompanied Ernesto "Che" Guevara on a journey of discovery across Latin America described in "The Motorcycle Diaries," died in Havana.
One year ago: The U.S. Ambassador to South Korea, Mark Lippert, was slashed in the face and arm by an assailant in Seoul (sohl). Actor Harrison Ford crash-landed his vintage plane on a golf course in Los Angeles after reporting engine failure shortly after takeoff. Convicted murderer Jodi Arias was spared the death penalty as a jury in Phoenix voted 11-1 in favor of execution -- not enough to send Arias to death row for the slaying of her lover, Travis Alexander. Islamic State militants continued their campaign targeting cultural heritage sites in territories they controlled in northern Iraq, bulldozing the historic city of Nimrud. Cardinal Edward Egan, 82, the former Archbishop of New York, died.
