The Current is part of Minnesota Public Radio, broadcasting on 89.3 in the Twin Cities.  Why should you care?  Well, besides being a phenomenal music station, their website has streaming audio files of all their in-studio performances/interviews with the best of today’s music makers. It’s a goldmine for music lovers wanted to hear their favorite artists stripped down to the essentials of their work.

I’ve been digging on the Nada Surf performance, as well as a really interesting Bob Mould performace.  My favorite has been hearing The Eels tackle the Prince gem ‘I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man’.

    Living in the Twin Cities, this station is the saviour of all things radio.  I can get in my car, no tape/cd player, and get quality music with no commericals.  Yer damn right I’m a member of Minnesota Public Radio!
