The Duluth Local Show on Local Current

I’m happy to say that I’ve been given the chance to share some Duluth music with a much wider audience than can hear my current radio program on KUWS. (And by “Duluth music” I mean everything from the Iron Range to the South Shore.)

The show will air on the Local Current stream on Wednesdays (starting tomorrow, March 27) at noon and will be rebroadcast on Thursdays at 11 p.m. and Saturdays at 6 p.m.

In order to put on the best local show I can – I’m gonna need your music if you’re in a band. We’ve got some 180+ acts playing Homegrown this year alone and I can tell you that I don’t have recordings from more than half of them. This is a call to bands from the region to send me your CDs/vinyls and/or high-quality digital downloads for me to potentially play on the Duluth Local Show.

I’m looking for new releases (even if you only have one awesome song recorded — send it to me) as well as music from Duluth’s past. If you’ve got a treasure trove of Duluth music that you’re willing to share, please let me know.

If you’ve got music or questions, please e-mail me at wdizzo(at)

You can listen to the Local Current stream at, on HD radio in the Twin Cities at 89.3 HD2, and via the MPR Radio app, which is available for iPhones and Androids.

P.S. The Walt Dizzo Show will continue to air locally on Thursday nights on 91.3 FM KUWS at 10 p.m. and  it will remain the avant-garde mixup of local/international/weirdo music it always has been.

Gah! I know!!! Frustrates me to no end that I can't listen to the Current up here (yes I know, streaming, app, yada yada yada - I want it in my car).
