Back in the fall we had this idea: We believe that everyone who works at the Current (and most people who don't) have in them at least one great idea for a radio show – something they are passionate about - something that hasn't been done, and something that would be interesting to do. The ideas might be a one-offs or ongoing programs, but what if we had a place on the schedule where we could push ourselves to create and air new shows? As an idea lab, as a way to extend what we do at the Current, and just because it'd be fun and 'cause we can. 9 p.m. on Sunday nights.
The Current Presents: Blues Highway Revisited features music from such artists as Gary Clark Jr., Muddy Waters and Lightnin' Hopkins. Local musicians share their thoughts on the blues, and Southampton, England, band the Dodge Brothers talk about recording at Sun Studio and share two tracks off their forthcoming album -- a U.S. radio premiere.
