Former Radio K, REV 105, NPR alum and present host on 89.3 the Current, Jake's been voted "best DJ" in the Twin Cities by the readers & critics of City Pages magazine ten years running (2003-2012) and one of Star Tribune's "Artists of the Year" (2012). His long-running "Transmission" dance night has been a weekly staple on the Minneapolis scene bringing a mixture of mod, glam & punk to post-punk, new wave, synth & indie rock for over a decade.
"Where Jake Rudh goes, dance floors follow. The DJ brought his retro sounds (and love of TV's Mad Men) to parties everywhere -- museums, libraries, restaurants, neighborhood bars, rock clubs. He started the year off with a bang, celebrating 10 years of Transmission, his weekly New Wave dance night at tiny Clubhouse Jäger, by bringing it to First Avenue, where he blew the roof off that storied club. Gigs just blossomed from there, turning Rudh into a true tastemaker. Not surprisingly, the Current offered him a weekly radio slot. Now even more people can groove to his love of Britpop, post-punk and the ilk." [Tom Horgen, Star Tribune, 2011]
