MINNEASOTA PUBLIC RADIO Triple A KCMP (THE CURRENT)/MINNEAPOLIS started something called THE MUSIC EXCHANGE as a way to connect radio listeners with music from different communities, exchanging songs from favorite local artists with those from another community. In 2009, THE CURRENT created its first exchange with WXPN/PHILADELPHIA.

COLE and WHEAT will unveil new music and commentary -- on air and online --throughout the week of JUNE 20th-24th.
