Jim McGuinn joined 89.3 The Current in January 2009 as Program Director and on-air host, moving to the Twin Cities from Philadelphia. Ever since seeing the Clash for his first concert, McGuinn has been hooked on rock ‘n’ roll-whether he was working on radio programming, playing guitar in a band, or teaching university level courses such as “Rock and Roll Cinema” at Drexel University. McGuinn has received numerous accolades for his innovative programming, including the 2008 Best AAA Air Personality, and being named Program Director of Year for Non-Commercial AAA six times while leading The Current to win Station of the Year nine of the past ten years. He loves the smell of vinyl in the morning, and lives in Saint Paul with his wife Christine, son Jameson, dog Winston, and Woody and Webster, two gray cats.
