Every Wednesday at noon, WMSE’s Ryan Schleicher, Shepherd Express’ Evan Rytlewski, and Milwaukee Record’s 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.
Radio Milwaukee’s Jordan Lee returns to his old WMSE stomping grounds to discuss the long-running Miltown Beat Down, an annual tournament that pits the area’s best producers against each other in a battle for beat-making dominance. Before the finals take place November 8 at the Miramar, Ryan, Evan, and Matt quiz Lee on the Beat Down’s past, present, and future, and discover why the event may be one of Milwaukee’s most diverse music gatherings. Finally, the strongly worded (and strictly enforced) “no talking/texting/heckling” rules from the Dave Chappelle shows at the Pabst are discussed, as are the many ways it doesn’t make sense to have a pre-show DJ hyping the crowd, only to tell everyone to sit down and shut up moments later.
