It's the 2008 edition of "The Current's 15 Years in 15 Days."

Each weekday for the next three weeks, we'll ask you to share your favorite songs from the past 15 years for each 9:30 Coffee Break, Jade and Mary Lucia will play back some of their favorite session tracks from each year, and at 6 pm Mark Wheat will air the Top 15 songs of each year, sourced from the Top 89s.

Keep your eyes and ears out for special programming on air and online as we inch closer to our 15th Anniversary Party at First Avenue on Jan. 18 featuring Black Pumas, The Bad Man, Seratones, MaLLY, and 26 Bats!.

And we're inviting you to look back on all the amazing music you've discovered with us over the years by downloading The Current app and streaming The Current 15, a collection of songs from the Top 89 listener polls from every year since the station's launch.
