what's spinning...the current


I’m currently (I mean…come on!) listening to Minnesota public radio’s “The Current” when I need some early morning wake-up tunes. They always offer up an eclectic mix of classic indie/alternative favorites and some forgotten, by me, deep-dives into bands I love.

I am hooked on the Saturday morning show “Teenage Kicks” which focuses in on the era from 70’s punk to 90’s grunge. Plenty of 80’s alternative…my guilty-pleasure decade genre favorite. Example…in the last half hour I’ve heard Nico Case, Pixies, Weezer, and Husker Du.

They’ve got a great app to check out, as well.
