MINNESOTA PUBLIC RADIO noncommercial Triple A KCMP (89.3 THE CURRENT)/MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL is celebrating its tenth anniversary in JANUARY with "10 Days of Random Acts of Musical Kindness," special events featuring local music.
PD JIM MCGUINN said, “You only turn 10 once, so we decided to go for it with a series of events that capture the spirit of the listeners and members of THE CURRENT and connect audiences to artists in unique ways, with once in a lifetime collaborations and accessible fun that celebrates not so much THE CURRENT, but the musicians and community that make it possible. We’re grateful to the artists, venues, sponsors, press, and of course the listeners — everyone who’s been with us along the way— that have made these first ten years so much fun.”
