About Local Current

Because Minnesota music is vital to The Current and our fair state, we created Local Current, a 24/7 stream of music dedicated entirely to musicians from Minnesota, available via our webstream, mobile apps or HD Radio in the Twin Cities at 89.3 HD2.

Local Current is made possible in part by the Minnesota Legacy Amendment's Arts and Culture Heritage Fund.
