The pandemic has put live music on hiatus, but many artists are once again touring and concert calendars are filling up — often with added COVID precautions.

Tuesday at 9 a.m., MPR News host Angela Davis talks with The Current’s program director Jim McGuinn about fall concerts and a new grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to partner with KMOJ. And they talk about how time has changed their minds about songs they used to dislike.
