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.
Perhaps you’ve heard of Summerfest. It’s this big thing that takes over Milwaukee’s lakefront for 11 days every summer, and features 11 stages and 8 billion bands. In preparation for this year’s Big Gig (June 25-29, July 1-6), Ryan, Evan, and Matt break the fest down day by day, and discuss which acts they’re looking forward to. Breathless odes to Usher, less-than-hearty endorsements of Mötley Crüe, and plenty of jokes about Summerfest favorite Pre-Recorded Music ensue.
