Every Wednesday at noon, Ryan Schleicher, Evan Rytlewski, and Matt Wild take to the WMSE airwaves to discuss all things Milwaukee. This half-hour fun-fest is called The Disclaimer, so named because none of the oft-ridiculous views expressed on the show necessarily reflect the views of the hosts’ employers. Milwaukee music, Milwaukee art, Milwaukee events, and D.I.Y. lawn care tips are frequently discussed—and rarely agreed upon. The Disclaimer: Talk radio for the sane.
If you’ve been concerned about that low rumbling sound coming from the lakefront, don’t worry: it’s only Summerfest, the 11-day behemoth scheduled to set up shop in Henry Maier Festival Park June 29-July 3, and July 5-10. Lumbering into its 49th year (!), The Big Gig promises to once again feature hundreds of musical acts, dozens of weird and wonky dining options, plenty of picnic table dancers, and oodles of harrowing people watching opportunities. Oh, and another time-honored tradition: dissecting, critiquing, and possibly bitching about the lineup. This week on The Disclaimer, Evan, Matt, and special guest Tyler Maas do just that, running down the shows they’re looking forward to, pondering the shows they’re unsure of, and waxing poetic on the Gin Blossoms.
