Happy New Year's Eve!

Thank you for weathering 2019 with us. We are excited to bring you into a new decade filled with great tunes, live shows and events.

For today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear that mention a party?

Once we're done with the Coffee Break today, there's so much special programming going on that we want to tell you about.

Starting at noon, we'll look back at the year in music by spotlighting Best New Artists, Best Albums, Best Twin Cities Concerts, Best Sessions and more.

And tonight, make sure to tune in to our Top 89 of 2019 countdown of the year's best songs as voted by you which will begin at 5 p.m. Central Time, taking us all the way to midnight. If you should miss part of it -- or if you'd like to listen again -- we'll rebroadcast the whole thing on January 1 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. And of course, you can follow along with all the results at thecurrent.org.
