10 years of the Current, in 10 numbers

The Current launched 10 years ago this morning, with the first song playing at 9 a.m. on January 24, 2005.

If you’ve been following the station since the beginning, you already know that a lot has happened since then. Thousands of things—or tens of thousands, if you want to talk about how many songs have been played on air.

As we prepare for the final night of our #Current10 celebrations, here’s a look back at some of the big numbers that add up to a decade of activity at the Current.
