Jake Rudh

Jake Rudh is host of "Transmission," the program heard on 89.3 The Current every Thursday night at 10pm. Jake has worked in music for over 20 years most recently with alternative favorites REV 105 and Radio K. For the past 10 years, he has been voted "best club DJ" in the Twin Cities by the readers of City Pages magazine and brings the varied mix of the club nights to the airwaves each Thursday night with a different theme to the show. Being named after the Joy Division classic, the program is heavily centered around new wave and British pop. Jake hosts in-studio sessions and interviews musicians from those worlds...most recently Adam Ant, Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music, Duran Duran's John Taylor, Ron and Russell Mael of Sparks, synth-pioneer Thomas Dolby, Peter Murphy of Bauhaus, Devo founder Mark Mothersbaugh, and Talking Heads & Tom Tom Club co-founder Chris Frantz.
