This week's schedule


The ABC program Jimmy Kimmel Live! features performances of particular interest to The Current listeners this week, with Tame Impala (Monday), Local Natives (Wednesday) and Phantogram (Thursday).

On Sunday night, PBS aired a special, Duran Duran: A Diamond in the Mind, recorded live in concert in Manchester in 2011. Look for rebroadcasts of this special on your PBS station. Users of the PBS app who are members of their local stations can use the Passport access to view on demand (note: The Current is not affiliated with public television or PBS). And speaking of PBS, Austin City Limits this week airs an encore of Father John Misty from 2017.

Here's the complete rundown. Check your local listings for broadcast times (schedule subject to change).
