This is some of the best news I’ve heard in a while. The station MPR purchased a few months ago is going to turn into a music station that, if the article in the Startribune is true, will be rather eclectic.

Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) told its staff Thursday that the new KCMP will present a diverse musical mix that targets “listeners who have grown up in the digital generation” — read: younger ears — with an emphasis on local artists.

Among local and national performers offered as examples: Mason Jennings, the Replacements, Olympic Hopefuls, the Jayhawks, Lucinda Williams, Joni Mitchell and U2. The station also will dip periodically into vintage material from the likes of Chet Baker, Johnny Cash and Ella Fitzgerald

Sounds good to me! Looks like I might be able to listen to the radio again!
