A message from The Current

In recent weeks, members of the Minnesota music community have been sharing accounts of abuse and manipulation, as well as continuing to decry systemic racism and other forms of systemic injustice. We know that there is more work ahead of us as a community.

We are privileged to have a platform that allows us to promote voices widely. It is our responsibility to make sure that platform is a safe space. It matters what songs we choose to play. And it makes a difference which voices we welcome on air. We are reviewing our music library and taking stock of which artists we are choosing to feature. We hear you, and we are committed to being part of the actions that lead to a safer music community.
