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.

atyclb u2acReleased in 2000 All That You Can’t Leave Behind was the first album from U2 in three years and marked a return to a more traditional sound from the band following the disappointing 1997 release Pop. The record is being readied for a new anniversary edition this fall. We’ll hear selections from the original album as well as selections from Bill Withers and the new single from Gorillaz, featuring Robert Smith of The Cure.
