Strange Currency

Series produced by KMUW

Series image

Strange Currency mixes and matches the old with the new, the familiar with the less familiar. Though we can all build our own playlists, it's still fun when someone does the heavy lifting for us. Host Jedd Beaudoin scours the wild terrains of new releases and searches the outback of classic cuts to bring you a thought-provoking listening experience each time. Strange Currency airs six nights a week and is available FREE for daily and weekend use, with specials available throughout the year.

“Strange Currency is one of the coolest, most interesting shows I’ve heard.”
Dustin Arbuckle, Moreland & Arbuckle

“Strange Currency is genius wrapped in pizza.”
KMUW listener

STRANGE CURRENCY
Strange Currency features classic and emerging artists in a forum that is ever evolving and curated by the show’s host, based on the host’s taste, and a reflection of the host’s personality. More than merely a music show, it’s conversation piece that consistently leaves listeners scrambling for playlists and their iTunes account.

The material ranges from classic alternative artists to blues-rock, to progressive and post rock with a special ear toward forgotten or underappreciated artists. This is the sound of a friend welcoming you into their home for a night of deep listening and light conversation.

Strange Currency has been heard on KMUW’s FM stream since 2009. Our audience ranges from teens to retirees, from music fans to musicians themselves.

The two hour show is available six nights a week with five shows that air at 57 minutes and one at 59. 57 minute shows have floating breaks, the 59 minute show runs continuous. The show is stream-able and SoundExchange compliant.

Additional promotional material is available.
