The Current: Time Machine Weekend

Hop in The Current’s Time Machine!  This weekend you’ll take a trip to a new year of music each hour: Bake the pumpkin pie in 1976. Set your table in 1987. Wash the dishes in 1995. Throughout the weekend, we’ll venture back to different eras on Teenage Kicks, Radio Free Current, United States of Americana, The Local Show and The Duluth Local Show.
