89.3 The Current - Great Music Lives Here (MPR)

Over the past five years, The Current has made a real effort to increase the number of local artists you hear on our airwaves, and we've also launched the Local Current stream and blog to give even more attention to the amazing and ever-growing Minnesota music scene and its long, rich history.

But on top of those efforts, it's also become a tradition at The Current in springtime to devote an entire day to nothing but local music. This year, Minnesota Music Day is Sunday, May 19. Starting right at midnight, we'll be playing tracks from all eras of music in Minnesota—from '60s garage and folk rockers, through the heyday of the '80s alternative and R&B scenes, to today's hip-hop, indie rock, Americana and everything in between. So join us all day on Sunday as we pay tribute to the awesome creative community of musical artists in Minnesota.
