No Longer Left

… of the dial. Minnesota Public Radio launched a new radio station (KCMP – 89.3 FM) this morning, and it’s instantly everything these Twin Cities have been missing since the brilliant Rev 105 left the air years ago. The Current, as this new station is called, is even better – essentially the same eclectic (don’t say alternative) format, but with no commercials! The station is so good that I’m not even missing my iPod, which is out for repairs after a tragic, locker room plummet. Atmosphere, Wilco, The Replacements, Death Cab for Cutie, Luna… all in the first 45 minutes… does it get any better than this?

    Hank Williams, Depeche Mode, Bob Dylan, Radiohead, Sun Volt… one in to the other with no commercials and only minimal announcing – no idiotic, pandering DJs. This is so great!

    The stream sounds awesome so far. The DJ feels like solid NPR rock, though, he needs to liven things up a little.

    Nick has heard enough to decide it’s “everything these Twin Cities have been missing since the brilliant Rev 105 left the air years ago”.
