The Current's Thanksgiving Time Machine Weekend! (MPR / Image by Peter Valelly)

It's back again! Our Thanksgiving Time Machine Weekend has been such a success the last two years — even spawning the weekly show Time Machine Tuesdays — we've revved it back up for another long weekend of skipping and jumping warp-speed across musical history. Starting Wednesday at 4 p.m. and ending Sunday at 6 p.m., we'll be spotlighting a different year every hour, with all of your favorite Current hosts in tow. So if you tune in and make the Current your holiday weekend soundtrack, be prepared for a rock'n'roll history lesson.

Check out the time machine's itinerary below, find out who our staff would invite to Thanksgiving dinner, and let us know your favorite year from rock history in the comments! And of course, most importantly, have a happy Thanksgiving!
