Best Local Music Broadcast
89.3 the Current's The Local Show
All radio programs exploring Minnesota music are not created equal. One irreplaceable charm is the venerable voice of David Campbell. When hosting The Local Show, the Current's weekly dip into everything locally grand, he's a relatable everyman musician who has spent more than a few nights onstage, but he also serves as an encyclopedia (and trusted arbiter) of local trends. With music reporter (and City Pages alum) Andrea Swensson contributing regular reports to the show and Jon Schober's consummate production holding it all together, it's a dream team of devoted music lovers who have done not only their homework but the extra credit too.
