are you trying to seduce me?

well 89.3 The Current launched this morning. if they were trying to seduce me into falling in love, they’ve done a damn good job. with an opening line-up that included the ‘mats, wilco, hank williams, death cab for cutie, son volt, ani difranco, and the Iron & Wine cover of that postal service song, it didn’t really take me long to fall and fall hard.

and lucky for you people not so fortunate to live in the twin cities area, they have a live streaming version of the station on their web site. it’s been so long since i’ve been in love with radio, probably since the demise of Rev-105, it’s nice to be back. i’ve missed it.

    I think back to the good ol’ days of KJJO 104. Rev 105 was awesome, to be sure, but they often found themselves slanted towards too much modern rock / alternative, without the added eclectic mix that KJJO delivered to the masses.

    Hopefully 89.3 will continue to offer thae eclectic mix which I’ve heard so far this morning. I like the idea of being able to turn on the radio and hear a mix reflecting the DJ, rather than the DJ just serving the task of queueing up music from the predetermined playlist.

    And they stream, so those of us in radio-starved St. Louis!
