DJ BILL DEVILLE

Bill DeVille brings his deep musical knowledge to The Current's airwaves five days a week. On Saturdays, he features the "honey-do list," a series of tracks scattered throughout the day that adhere to a theme: Sometimes it's Rolling Stones songs, sometimes it acknowledges special dates or shows, and sometimes it's something as specific as artists mentioned in the LCD Soundsystem hipster classic, "Losing My Edge." On Sundays, DeVille hosts and curates the show, United States of Americana, which specializes in the roots-oriented side of The Current. He's hosted several in-studio sessions on the show with such luminaries as Rosanne Cash and Justin Townes Earle, as well as with newcomers like J.D. McPherson. DeVille also hosts Time Machine Tuesday, a weekly show focusing on a year and its music, news and pop culture.

DeVille has been with The Current since its inception. You might also remember him as the overnight host and music programmer on Cities 97. While there, he also hosted Minnesota Music, where he interviewed local music legends the Jayhawks, Semisonic, Mason Jennings and Soul Asylum. DeVille started his radio career in Sioux Falls, S.D., and also spent some time at KABL (a Minneapolis-based, cable-radio station). He was named City Pages' Best DJ in 2007 for his work on The Current, and more recently was named Best DJ in Vita.MN's List of Lists issue.
