89.3 the Current

Be sure to check out the new public radio station on 89.3, The Current.

I listened to it for about 15 minutes today and I’ve already been impressed. After lunch I got to listen to Pinback‘s “AFK”…on the radio. What?!?

I think in the morning they were playing Luna and Wilco. I suppose I should reserve judgement for a while, but I like what I hear so far. I may need to re-up my MPR membership in the spring because of this. I imagine it will give me a taste of what satellite radio could provide: very few commercial interruptions.

From what I gathered on MPR’s news station yesterday, this station is broadcasting out of Minneapolis and Rochester.
