Today is the last day to request a special Valentine’s Day message from The Current! Celebrate the day of love by requesting a song and leaving a message to be dedicated to your special someone. We’ll play as many as we can - live, on the air, on Valentine’s Day. While filling out the form, you also have the option to provide your postal address to receive a valentine’s card in the mail from The Current! Tune in on February 14 to hear Valentine’s Day programming all day.
