Theft of the Dial®

Every once in a while, The Current has the opportunity to bring in someone who we admire and respect enough to hand over control of the airwaves to them. Welcome to Theft of the Dial -- where you get to hear some of your (and our) heroes take over 89.3 The Current, play some of the music they love, and talk about why they chose it.
