sc squareStrange 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.

The Wood BrothersListen for music from Loaded, the 2008 release from The Wood Brothers as well as selections from Shack-Man, the 1996 LP from Medeski, Martin and Wood, featuring Chris Wood of The Wood Brothers.

Peart, who joined the band in 1974, became the group's primary lyricist and later authored several books, including the travel diary Ghost Rider. He died Tuesday, January 7, at the age of 67 following a three-and-a-half-year battle with brain cancer.
