Well, if you don't like AC/DC, get the hell outta my country. ;)

I love the new lyrics to their one song.

He's just too smug for my tastes.

I don't know. I only started listening to The Current in the past year or so, because they actually have a variety of music, and moved on from the "college music" scene. I don't need to hear GNR 5x per day.

He made the move on his own so he didn’t have to play the Cities 97 Playlist over and over again.

Yeah he left by choice. Apparently Cities want as douche as it used to be ;)

Apparently a guy I grew up with is very good friends with him cause he is all over the Facebook articles defending him. I never much liked him either and he definitely came of a a snob. Great radio voice though.

I just don't get the appeal to The Current. I've tried to listen to it because I've had some friends tell me to give it a chance. Each time I've tried I've heard one song in a couple hours that I actually liked. Admittedly Mankato has a $h!teee radio selection but I can handle even the worst station in town over The Current. That's just me, I have no problem with other people liking it but there are some people who approach liking the current to being a vegan...."I listen to The Current and you should too!"

I like the Current simply because of the variety. Will I hear a bunch of stuff I don't like? Yep. Will I hear the same band 15 times in a day? Nope. Will I find gems to download at a later date? Yep.

I had the radio on in the garage this afternoon while doing some work. My goodness, I've never heard 2 people toot their own horn like Russo and Johnny Athletic. It didn't take long and I was happier with silence. It sounded like an hour long advertisment for the athletic on KFAN. Along with a blue chew commercial every break. I can do without KFAN for awhile...

Katie Emmer leaving FSN North for a "new adventure".

Also, on the national level, Nick Kypreos and Doug MacLean are parting ways with SportsNet. I really enjoyed then on hockey central at noon on the NHL network. John Shannon also was let go from SportsNet. Sounds like these are all cost cutting measures.

Centurylink may drop cable services in northern St. Paul suburbs (Falcon Heights, Lauderdale, Little Canada, Mounds View, New Brighton, North Oaks, Roseville, & St. Anthony

This does NOT affect phone & internet. Only cable.

I enjoy Dan Barreiro very much, but does he get a royalty every time he tweets "We didn't need him"? If so, he can retire and buy his own island at this point.

Just like every other media personality, he has his phrases. It's the way the world works in media.

BTW, I do enjoy Barreiro in small doses.

There is none...

Over the last 3 seasons, the schedule was release on 9/26 twice and 9/27 once. So I am guessing that if they stay consistant, we'll get it late next week.

I'd like to thank @slapshot for sharing this on Twitter. It's a Youtube audio of a classic story from KQ morning show and it involves a 2 dollar bill. Very funny story!!!

Both of those are HOFer stories. Same with the "B-I-C-H/yo mammy" one.
