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.

Minnesota native Vincent Kartheiser plays Pete Campbell, the love-to-hate-him — or maybe hate-to-love-him -- ladder-climbing accounts man on the show.
