The Current bringing Jake Rudh to the airwaves


Exciting news for fans of new wave and Britpop-heavy dance night Transmission: DJ Jake Rudh, who has been spotted lately gigging everywhere from Kings to the First Avenue Mainroom to his weekly spot at Clubhouse Jager (not to mention gracing the cover of the City Pages Best of the Twin Cities issue) will be starting up a new weekly spot on 89.3 the Current. Each Thursday night at 10 p.m., the station will hand over the reins to Rudh to spin an hour of '80s club music as part of a new series of weeknight programs.

[jump] In addition to Rudh's Thursday night spot, the Current will be introducing a few other weeknight shows, all hour-long programs scheduled for 10 p.m.: Monday nights will be dedicated to new releases spun by the station's co-music director David Safar for "The New Hot," while Wednesday nights will feature a syndicated special, "Passport Approved," hosted by L.A. DJ Sat Bisla that explores new international music.

To round out the week, the music review program "Music Heads" will continue on in its Tuesday night slot.

In other programming news, Radio K just announced that they will be debuting a new weekly punk rock program, Clashed Attitudes, this Sunday from 2-4 p.m.
