What is the Best Radio Station in the World? 89.3 The Current - One of the Best things to Happen to the Minnesota Music scene
Well ok maybe not the World, but Minnesota Public Radio hit a home run when it started 89.3 The Current back in 2005. It isn't often you are able to catch the very first song of a new radio station, but I remember clearly the moment 89.3 The Current aired its very first song - "Shhh", by the local hip-hop group Atmosphere. I knew then that this station would be something special.
If you love heart pumping, goose bump giving, dance in your underwear around the house music I implore you to check out The Current (available anywhere via live streaming). Here are a few of their in studio live performances - Enjoy!
Listen to a great in studio session at The Current with Adele back in 2010. (while not a Minnesota musician we won't hold that against her too much) Even at 22 years old you could tell she had something special and now seven years later she has exploded into the music world. Rapidly approaching 2 BILLION views on her "Hello" video on Youtube!
A wonderful interview and live in studio renditions of "Someone Like You," "Rolling In The Deep" and "Chasing Pavements."

20 years later he is still going strong making breathtaking music with his distinctive sound. His latest album (2016) Wild Dark Metal despite sounding like a raging metal album is still Jennings signature acoustic strumming and buttery voice like you are used to.
One of my favorite new offerings in 2016 this album goes well with a glass of wine and a crackling fire and of course good company.

"Making music is a way of experiencing something that I can't put a name to. When I write music I am always searching for something. As Thomas Wolfe said, I am trying to remember a forgotten language."
The Power of Musical Expression - Music for the head, heart, and body
Music has a very powerful effect on people, but each of us listen to music in a different way. Some of us take a cerebral approach and love the structure and form, others listen to music from their hearts and have a very emotional response to the lyrics, and still others have a physical response a whole body stimulation. How does music effect you? (don't worry you don't have to include pictures, it's just a poll...)
